Portland, Oregon is home to many beards... so many, in fact, that one can scarcely walk down the street without tripping over one! Thus, our Nob Hill hat shop hosted the First Annual "Hats Off to Beards" Competition last month. In attendance were sixty or so of the rowdy Portland Beardsmen and their bawdy, boastful beards. One happy partygoer even dressed up in a full Abraham Lincoln costume! It was a night was full of camaraderie, booze, hats, and facial hair of all shapes and sizes.
Last weekend, our Gaslamp Hat Shop in San Diego hosted the official limited early release of the Heisenberg Hat & Box Set. The iconic hat, as worn by Walter White in the hit AMC TV series, Breaking Bad, was announced just in time for Comic Con International in San Diego.
Breaking Bad and Goorin Bros. fans alike lined up in front of our shop for the exclusive autograph signing by Breaking Bad creator, Vince Gilligan and RJ Mitte (Walter White Jr.). Guests were treated with custom cocktails inspired by Heisenberg, crystal blue rock candy, Breaking Bad photo booth and a special appearance by Ben Goorin.
The first few hundred Heisenberg box sets were sold during Comic-Con weekend and the remaining of the 1,895 produced will soon be available at www.goorin.com. If you haven't already, sign up for updates now and be the first to find out when they go on sale. You can also test out you luck and enter for a chance to win the Collector's Edition Heisenberg Hat & Box Set on our Facebook!

Last month, our Old Town hat shop in Pasadena, CA hosted a night inspired by the islands. Havana Nights showcased our latest straw and panama hats along with Mursuli Cigars - a third generation family owned Cuban company. Their heritage and craftsmanship is tasted and felt with every breath, much like how our dedication to quality is seen in every weave of a hand-woven straw hat.
Watch Havana Nights and get inspired to try on a straw hat today.

This past February, our North Beach hat shop partnered with Noble Breed for a Spring Showcase event. Our newest hats from the Heritage Line were partnered up with their unique silk pockets squares and felt lapel roses. A serendipitous marriage of fine accessories for both men and women, Goorin Bros. and Noble Breed presented a mini fashion show of versatile looks.
Watch the video recap of the evening.
