01. Neighborhood Safari Hat
(S/S 2012 “Less Than Zero”)
Reigning from Japan, NBHD is one of my favorite powerhouse labels. Somewhere over the past few years i’ve adopted to having something on my head at all times (bed head 24/7), and while I try push the boundaries of when it is socially acceptable to wear a beanie in the middle of summer.. sometimes it just doesn’t work.
Something different, something not a snapback, 5-panel and so forth (not that there’s anything wrong with that. Though if i’m honest, you have to have a particular shaped head to fit a 5-panel.. and I feel like not everyone realises that). Leather/Suede wide brim, small enough to fit my head, perhaps well overpriced, awkward to wear, hard to pull off.. this is probably my favourite thing yet.
