I've been a hat guy, not just a cap or beanie, since I was a kid. It pretty much became a necessity when I started voluntarily shaving my head every week. I needed to have something to keep my head warm in the winter and protect it from the sun in the summer (I do use sunscreen up top too).
For the longest time, I wore mostly flat caps until 2010, when I bought my first fedora from the gents at Goorin Bros in Denver. I since become a frequent visitor of Goorin Bros. Hat Shop for two reasons: 1. The hats are awesome. 2. The fun and knowledgeable staff led by Shopkeeper, Larry Nix. These are big reasons why I have a growing hat collection. Over the years, I have hosted a few events there and gone to many others. And if I'm honest, I sometimes try not to go in because I know there will be something in there I want to take home. I always say you can never have too many shoes and I should probably add hats to that statement.
One of my 2018 goals was to expand my hat collection and branch out from my norm. So I am taking you on my journey in hopes that it will inspire you to try a hat or a new style for the first time. With that said, once a month I will pick a different style hat and show you how I would style it. I may on a few occasions repeat some of the clothing choices so you can see how a hat can completely change a look. I would love to hear your feedback and see some of your favorite choices.

Suit it up or dress it down!!!
