uniform experiment x KANGOL Pork Pie Hat
The http://uniformexperiment.jp/”>uniform experiment collection releasing this Saturday is a widely varied body of work; the garments draw on standard UE inspirations like American, collegiate references, and distressed denim. The most interesting piece of the collection though is the Kangol collaboration: uniform experiment and and the British hatmaker teamed up to produce two version of a pork pie, the classic short-brim hat made famous by generations of hipsters. The pork pie actually first became popular during the Civil War, and was widely worn off-duty by US soldiers in the 1880’s. Of course, since then, the profile has become synonymous with jazz, blues, and ska musicians, which is a perfect explanation for the this item’s inclusion in the Americana theme of the uniform experiment collection. The hat is available in an all-black version with a black band, which exudes an almost formalwear look. Alternately, the ska influence is channelled heavily by a version also in black, but set off by a hatband in black and white checkerboard. Both feature the classic Kangol logo on the band, and both will be available starting this Saturday, March 5th, from http://uniformexperiment.jp/”>uniform experiment accounts. Check out both versions of the hat after the jump. via: http://soph.net/blog/archives/2011/03/04/new_release_on_march_05.html”>SOPH.
