Polka Rash Shirt by Tallow; All hats from Brixton.

Okay, so the straw fedora is a summer icon. It’s also overpopulating every shop in a ten mile radius, so this year we’re retiring ours for a whole new character. The wide-brim hat pays homage to David Bowie’s Thomas Jerome Newton in The Man Who Fell From Earth, a ripple effect of the mid-’70s fashion infiltrating summer collections. We’re collecting a bevy of options from our friends at Brixton (and a few flea market scores) that we can wear now, and through the colder transition months later.
