Livin for the City

We were pretty stoked to see Curren$y‘s new video for “Living For The City.”

Spitta is wearing our REMINGTON snap back from FW12. We’ve been using this print for a few years and were the first to use it in hat, unfortunately we are sold out, but we do have some of the REMINGTON camp hat left. Ours are fully lined in premium satin as well.

Support the originals.

New Spring Camp Hats

7 Seas III sm New Spring Camp Hats

We just released a few new camp hats inspired by some of our sold out snapbacks. Marina del Rey was the perfect backdrop to feature them, so we headed out on the “BELLA FIGA” for an afternoon of sun on the water. The SEVEN SEAS III Camp hat is shown above with a rugged khaki twill upper and Seven Seas print brim.

Augusta III sm New Spring Camp Hats

The AUGUSTA II Camp hat, made from deadstock rose print, is lined in a premium blue and white striped woven cotton.

Reverse II sm New Spring Camp Hats

The REVERSE II Camp is the camp version of last summers REVERSE snap back with a contrast brown wool brim.

Available in our webstore, the fine boutiques listed on the right hand side of the site and Karmaloop for our international tribe.

Ampal x Gorbals Chefs Hat

The Gorbals is a spot for new and diverse ideas. For tasty, oddball food that is there for anyone who is willing to eat something that does not fall into a category. It is not an Italian restaurant, or an Indian restaurant, or a Scottish restaurant, or a Los Angeles restaurant, nor is it new age, traditional, old school, fusion, pretentious or plain. It is simply The Gorbals. ”

Our favorite restaurant happens to be a few blocks up the street. Over many a meal and beers at the Gorbal’s kitchen counter – its like being in Kitchen Stadium – we got front row input from Ilan, Manny and Lizi on the ultimate chef’s hat.

Gorbals Side2 SM Ampal x Gorbals Chefs Hat

The upper is made from 100% cotton canvas. Its tough, breathable, and at home in the kitchen. On the right side we added elastic slots for holding a meat thermometer and Sharpie. The brim is made from industrial vinyl, so if you have to adjust your hat with greasy hands, you can wipe it off later. We sourced a special vinyl backed diamond knit sweatband to keep it cool in the heat of the kitchen.

Its all black because its Ampal for the Gorbals and Ilan is from NY.

Limited to 60 pieces to the public. The rest are for the Gorbals’ chefs – if they sell out, maybe you can start washing dishes.

Available here.

Gorbals available here.

Hailing from SD, the talented lads of Dirty Gold made us one hell of a mixtape for Friday the 13th weirdness. The mellow tempo is perfect for the muggy tropical weather we’re engaged in. Track list below.
