For some, a car is just a car. But for The Last Originals, a car is a part of a lifestyle, a piece of time and history and an embodiment of a tight knit brotherhood. Founded in 1994, The Last Originals car club rekindled a spark of the mid-century greaser culture throughout local Bay Area communities, and today continues to spread their influence, hosting events that garner over 400 cars and curious spectators. The 1950's and 60's car culture runs deep in their blood, and Goorin Brothers caught it all on camera for the The Last Originals collection. Learn about the greaser car culture in our interview with The Last Originals President Rob Balcioni.

Valentine's Day is less than two weeks away, and it seems that the pressure rises as the day comes closer. Feeling intimidated by the made up holiday? Here are the learning lessons after watching dance group, The Body Poets, swoon some special visitors at our San Diego Gaslamp Hat Shop: enough with the seriousness and just have fun with it. Fellas, take notes, 'cause this is how you make a girl smile.
Who are The Body Poets? How do you "woo" a girl? We talk about this (and more) in our interview with The Body Poets Founder and Art Director Omeed Simantob.
While a hat helps ease those bad hair days, that doesn't mean you should neglect those tresses. In fact, the style of your hair is just as significant as the fit and shape of your hat: both highlight the face, in some ways better than others. With a hat comes so many hairstyle possibilities, and if you marry the two perfectly you've got yourself a winning combo (not to mention a happy, good lookin' head).
We consult expert hairstylists at the new Drybar in San Francisco's Union Square for hat hairstyling (yes, it's a thing) and exclusive hat hair tips (the cure to flat hat hair? Drybar hairstylists tell us that dry shampoo and some tousling with your fingertips will add back that volume!). Now, get the how-tos for three flawless hat hairstyles that go from casual daytime date to romantic night out.
Hats made a big (literally, big) appearance at the Grammy 2014 Awards. If you tuned in to music's biggest night, you probably saw a hat on every celebrity head there. And if you missed it, you probably heard about Pharrell's hat, a big, brown mountie fedora (which was actually part of a head-to-toe outfit inspired by Malcom McLaren's 1980's hip hop video "Buffalo Gals"), Madonna's Coven-like wide brim and Yoko Ono's dressy top hat with birdcage veil.
The hats worn at the Grammys were no doubt conversation starters and even Internet meme generators. If you're feeling inspired or the Grammy hat sightings piqued your interest in haberdashery, Goorin Bros. carries many similar styles that can be worn for everyday and dressier occasions (note: they bear no resemblance to Smokey the Bear). Read on for hat recommendations based on the head-turners seen at the Grammys.
