#HatWallWednesday Stories Vol.8

an interview series with Goorin collectors

#HatWallWednesday Stories Vol.8
Since we interact with so many hat-lovers on our social media channels, Nicky (our social media and community manager), started asking frequent Goorin collectors about their collections, why they love hats, and to share what their hat walls at home look like! 
 
Our next interview in this #hatwallwednesday series is with Darryl Anders, a musician based out of the Bay Area, CA. Darryl has been featured on our Spotify Playlist, and make sure to check out his single on YouTube here   -  Check out the interview with Nicky and Darryl below!
 
    
Q: When did you begin your Goorin Bros adventure? / A: I was looking for a hat to wear on the cover of my first CD and stumbled upon the Goorin Bros store in the Haight in SF. I got so many compliments and I loved how the hat made me stand out without saying or doing anything else.
  
Q: When did you begin to realize you were starting a collection? / A: It started slow…. I would see a hat I liked and would sometimes build a look around the hat. Eventually it just became a part of my style and the collection grew rapidly.
   
Q: Was there a mind-shift somewhere along the way where you knew you were about to embark on something bigger? / A: At some point I really got immersed in the whole hat culture. I started becoming friends with other hat enthusiasts and learning about the brand and it’s history. The staff at Goorin Bros became like family. They always made me feel special. 
  
Q: What are these hats fulfilling from within that has made you keep going and adding to your collection? / A: I’m a creature of habit. If I like something I usually want to know more about it and it becomes part of me. Goorin Bros hats make a bold statement that says I’m here, and confident, and ready to rock!
 
Q: What are your top three favorite hats that you own? / A: My top three hats are my Pure Snow- Cloud Sky- and Billy the Kid
  
Q: Any that you missed or think we should bring back or make for the first time? / A: I told someone recently that I wished you’d bring back the Gaucho and suddenly the London Rose and Cloud Sky appeared. I also really wanted a pure white hat in Block No.25 and the next day I get the RSVE email about the Pure Snow. It’s like you’re reading my mind.
 
Q: You are a brand ambassador. How has that been going? / A: I’m proud to rep the brand and tell my friends about these amazing hats!
 
Q: Any message you wanted to give to our customers about why you choose Goorin and why you choose to continue adding more and more hats to your collection? / A: Goorin Bros makes hats for any occasion or personal style. If you don’t know what you like the staff is super knowledgeable and friendly. And owning a Goorin Bros hat makes you a member of a really cool club full of amazing hat people!
