Cock Your Hat This Summer

We tend to agree with what Frank Sinatra once said, ‘Cock your hat – angles are attitudes’. Your attitude is what let’s you get away with wearing at hat or not.

Some occasions ask for hats – such as an important day at the track/polo or a wedding – others choose to wear a hat regularly as expression of self. However, when you think about those who wear hats, they are confident and stylish.

In the tropics, hats can play an important role. They are a great accessory that can complete your look, but their function makes them more of a must-have item. In SS13 we are seeing more and more hats on and off the runway. Hats are in! And the older in style the better.

We have found two local hat labels – both with a distinct style – that are perfect for the climate and any fashionista or dapper gent.
