Spring is here, and summer will be soon enough, which means it’s time to be thinking about some new hats. Wearing a hat not only adds a little something to your overall look, it will help keep the sun off your head and out of your eyes. That’s why you need to know about the Guillermo and Soul Surfer from San Francisco hatmaker Goorin Bros.
Goorin Bros. has been in the hat business since 1895, so they know a thing or two about what makes a great hat. Over the last 20 years, just about every hat I’ve owned was one of theirs (except for my collection of baby beanies) and at no time did I regret the purchase. The Goorin Bros. focus on style and quality is surely part of why they’ve been in business for 119 years.
The Guillermo, which is part of the Goorin Everyday collection, is a hand woven, navy and white, paper ribbon straw porkpie hat that is designed to be lightweight and packable. It’s fine, airy weave makes it a great choice for hot days and its Cuba-inspired style will take it from the cabana to the nightclub with ease. The Guillermo features a 1.5” stingy brim, 3.25” crown, with a 1.5” contrasting band with a Goorin pin for added style points, and a blue tie print sweatband.
The Soul Surfer is a six-panel 100% cotton duckbill ivy from the Goorin Everyday collection. This summer-centric lid is cut from a light twill and has a cotton liner printed with a “summer island getaway” scene inspired by a 1950s Goorin catalog. It features a curved 2” brim, contrasting woven eyelets for good airflow, and a stretchy grosgrain sweatband to help ensure a perfect fit. The Soul Surfer is available in blue, red, purple, and grey.
