Grand_Brixton_2011
Brixton's hats are ready to be bought and top your latest as soon as it really stops being wintry out. Spring is...almost...here, and we're looking for hats to match the happy mood we're in about the winter being almost over. The Brixton Grand hat is one of our favorites, with a finer woven straw and a vintage fit. It's a fedora, yes, but it has an elegant appearance to it--I think it's the...

Thom Yorke's Bowler Hat
This past Friday brought with it the much-anticipated release of the new Radiohead album, The King of Limbs. If we can table our intense discussion about Radiohead's return for a moment, let's applaud Thom Yorke on the wicked bowler hat he's presently rockin.'

6 Accessories Hipsters Have Temporarily Co-opted, And Therefore Gutted

The hipsterdom fashion universe is a pastiche of things defined more or less by the level of irony they can convey. This means - like a ravenous, all-consuming blob - the hipster wolf-pack adopts certain items and inadvertently redefines them until they've lost most of their original meaning. Here's a short list of things outlining exactly what we mean.

Italia Independent Hat

Eccentric, well-designed and executed, and without a misstep in line: that's Lapo Elkann's work for you. The heir to the Agnelli family, who dreams up design objects, eyewear, and now these lively hats, is tempting us with investment toppers that will really get some interest going above the ears. Fashioned with a traditional grosgrain band. [$294 at colette]

A trilby is a great hat for the fedora-weary, especially the kind who won't give up their headgear no matter what. This classic selection comes in an equally classic black pepped up with a rather stylish little "K" pin in metal to show off who made it. It's just as home on the British as it is on a Manhattan hipster, so pop this on your noggin and get on with it! [via selectism]

This cotton twill cap sourced over at Ssense features a classic Velcro adjustment tab in back, but that's where the boring details end and the fun stuff begins. The Diesel "Woorker-a-Service" hat has a diagonally-racing tag that sticks out at right and looks pretty bold on a classic black ground. Machine wash cold for a lifelong good fit. One size.

Victor Osborne Bowler Hat

This bowler hat from Victor Osborne at Forward by Revolve might look more or less trad from afar, but it's actually a little bit funkier than most, and with a cream ribbon encircling the brim. Ribbed cotton contrast details also mean that this choice will match with a good deal of plain tees, hoodies, and windbreakers-- awesome!-- and it offers a pretty easy means of accessorization that's...

The Hat and the Modern Man!

coal_82915_brn-5t-horz
Editor's Note-- We're men.  Our style is portrayed less through flash and "glamour" than it is through simplicity and functionality.  The hat isn't a tool for us-- a cop-out, a cover up, it is a form of expression equivalent to the most front-facing features of our wardrobes.  We wear our hats proud on our heads because they symbolize quite deeply something about who we...

Coal Considered Layne Fedora

coal_82915_brn-5t-horz
This sleek fedora shape says good-bye to the traditional flat wools and instead has a woven appeal in rich brown. If you're not exactly in a cool climate or you need to switch things up for vaca, this Coal Considered option is amazing. Available in medium and large sizes, with a wide gray band to match with cords and blazers. I daresay that you could also rock some stubble with it. [$47 at 80s...

Brixton Men's Herringbone Twill Stroll

Dapper but not at all overbearing, this cap is an easy way to accessorize. Jeans and tees might be a little on the boring side, but plunking this puppy down can really get your outfit on the fast track. Feather detailing at the side is a great detail, especially when paired with that statement band in black. Available in actual sizes, too, from S-XL. [$47 at 80spurple]

This one brings back old construction methods and handcrafted techniques to give each one a unique look and feel. Dry clean only, one size fits all. [$135 at revolve]
