Family reunions are an exciting mix of relations pulled apart by circumstance but brought back together by history, love, and the fact that everyone's actually Eddie Murphy. For a reunion of hats, check out Estate
Over the past 3 years, Estate's made superlative fitted hats for 40+ brands; their tiny, old-schoolish storefront brings all these offspring back together, to catch up on old times, and eat too much of Auntie Estate's pie. The wildly varied materials range from baseball-cap stock to made-to-order denim, wool, and seersucker, all made in the USA (Sierra Leone seersucker's tempting, but ultimately not worth the human cost). Expect offerings like floral-print collabs with NYC's Leroy Jenkins, formerly-Islands-only numbers from Fitted Hawaii, and Estate's own discontinued tearaway: cut away the outer chopstick design and find a secret, inner sushi print (spicy dome roll?)
This fall, Estate will introduce a line of soft, '30s-style baseball caps -- which'll help you form a connection with your own oldest relatives, even if they still think you're that guy from Chappelle's Show and insist on calling you Charlie.
