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 color–that makes it veer away from obnoxious and back into classic territory. I loathe what happened to the noble fedora, I do.
If you want to stay away from it, however, there are other options at Brixton right now. The site has a pork pie “Drifter” hat with a thick straw body and a little spotted feather poking out of the grosgrain. Caps are also well-represented on Brixton, including the Brood, Spoke, Fiddler, and Bridge, all of which have a paneled design but fit the head with varying degrees of volume. I’m willing to try any hat if it’s well-constructed, and the price also happens to be right this season–caps are $30 and the fedora & pork pies are $40+. Sometimes a hat is an actual necessity; make sure you’ve got at least one. [at brixton, via acquire]

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.’

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.

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]

Estate L.A. and Leroy Jenkins joined forces to develop a line of spring-y hats just for EASTWESTWORLDWIDE. The hats have a great shape– fat brims and high fronts– and come complete with inner seaming and logo detailing. Classic 3D logo sits in front to coordinate with those must-be-a-man prints. Stylish and daring, rolled up in one. We’ll take one of each, please– thanks. [via Culture Shoq's Eastwest]

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.
