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
Jorge Carreño, who has over 150 Farm Trucker caps - one of the biggest featured collections yet! - Check it out below!
Q: When did you begin your Goorin Bros adventure? / A: In 2021 when I saw a Mexican actor wearing the Tiger hat. I immediately fell in love with the design and the animal patch. Then I started to take notice of soccer players wearing the hats too. I began to research the brand and wanted one, so my son bought me my first hat which was the brown King Lion.
Q: When did you begin to realize you were starting a collection? / A: When I saw that there are a lot of different hats. They all had a variety of animals, textures, and designs that I really liked. Currently I have over 150+ Goorin Bros hats.
Q: Was there a mind-shift somewhere along the way where you knew you were about to embark on something bigger? / A: When I learned about the community of Goorin Bros collectors. When I joined, everyone was friendly and treated each other like family. From that moment, I knew that Goorin Bros was more than just a brand, it was a place where people can come together and share their love for the hats and help each other out with finding, buying and trading hats.
Q: What are these hats fulfilling from within that has made you keep going and adding to your collection? / A: The variety of designs that come out. Each Friday I look forward to the new drop. Each hat is unique in its own way and the pictures don’t do it justice. They look much better in person.
Q: What are your top three favorite hats that you own? / A: My favorite hats are Tyrant King (Monster) and Fire March because of the color and material and the realistic image of the animal. My most favorite one is Superbus (Proud) because of the color, material, and the design on the underbrim which is Venus representing the most beautiful creature. Women.
Q: Any that you missed or think we should bring back or make for the first time? / A: I missed Ox and Clever. I think it would be great if the vintage patches and the savage patch were brought back. I would love it if Goorin Bros would make a grasshopper hat and a collection of bulls like zebu, long horned etc.
Q: You are a brand ambassador. How has that been going? / A: It’s been going great because everywhere I go people always complaint my hats. I tell them about the brand and I give them the website and also give them my code in case they want to buy one. I try and enjoy promoting Goorin Bros on social media. I’m always wishing for a bright future for Goorin Bros and myself.
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: Firstly, I would like to thank Goorin Bros for letting me share my passion for the hats.I would like the customers to know that in my opinion, Goorin Bros is the best hat brand in the market. Everyone can find a hat that goes with their style because Goorin Bros have a variety of designs one can chose from. Lastly, their customer service is always there to help with questions. The four stores that I have visited they have treated me very kindly and assist me with finding a hat.
