after introducing you to my scarves, gloves and mitts,
i figured it was time to delve further into my winter accessories.
so today... my hats
my numero uno choice of headgear this winter is this...
it's by commes des garcons. black, warm and with a quilted fold down bit.
i've also pulled this one out of the archives recently
a black stussy beanie that i bought years ago when stussy had a little stall in the bluebird garage market on the kings road. it's been a restaurant for maybe 15 years now so
this is quite an old piece. i wear it this way but it is actually reversible.
here's the other side
my preferred side has a red stussy tag, this side has stussy embroidered onto the material.
seven or so years ago i started buying bape clothing and accessories.
this is one of my favourite pieces. it was a christmas present from mrs w.
an olive green cashmere beanie.
the same time that the bapehead camo scarf dropped, they also released this...
it's an odd one. a nice warm beanie, but with a peak.
looking through my hats yesterday i found this
plain black wool beanie with apehead tag. i honestly can't remember buying this.
in new york a couple of years ago i bought this tidy little effort
from one of my favourite little stores.
i thought anewyorkthing was really going to take off as a brand.
i remember hideout stocking their stuff for a while. oh well, it's a sweet hat.
from way back in the day. showing my roots... check this one out...
proper old school bob hat.
from back in the day when warrington were just called warrington, not
warrington wolves. from when they used to play at wilderspool stadium.
the good old days with john bevan on the wing... ahhh...
another bob hat here...
stussy perhaps ?
this is a really good quality thick bob hat. if it was a stussy piece it would cost a fortune.
i bought it in prague a few years ago from the club shop of one of the local football teams,
sparta prague. i think it cost about £2 or £3.
this is another footy hat. a beanie i bought in santiago chile in 1998
i was working in santiago for almost a month. it's a great city.
amazing coffee shops ( but that's another story altogether )
anyway, this is from the club shop of universidad de chile
and has for years been my choice of snowboarding headgear.
ok so that's hats, scarves and gloves done. what's up next ?
do you want to see my sock collection ?
