Hatters, you best mark your calendars. National Hat Day is this Wednesday! On January 15th, the whole Goorin Bros. gang will be celebrating the day in bold 'fits and of course our favorite Goorin toppers. To make this day even more special, we'll be giving away free buttons to National Hat Day customers and doing special giveaway contests on our Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
Goorin Bros. has always had a strong tradition of charitable giving, and together with our customers and Goorin Hat Tree, we have donated hats to hospitals, cancer centers and children's cancer camps nationwide — transforming everyday purchases into a gift for those who are battling cancer. Since its inception seven years ago, our annual Goorin Gives campaign has resulted in over 75,000 hats being donated to cancer foundations, bringing the magic of the hat to those who could use it the most.
Hatters, if you've never owned a top hat, you should. While we understand the worries and doubts about styling a top hat for everyday wear (if your brain quickly associates the top hat with steampunk, Abraham Lincoln, or Lewis Carroll's Mad Hatter — we don't blame you), we wholeheartedly disagree with the common preconceptions surrounding this classic topper. The top hat is a statement making piece and while obviously not a hat for the sartorially meek, it's what we'd call a game changer that's made its mark in history and cemented its place in today's fashion.
This New Year's Eve, us folks at Goorin Bros. are donning our top hats over our dapper outfits as we toast to 2014 in bold fashion. As an homage to the classic top hat, we're going to shed light on its rich history.
