This past couple of months, I have been spending time searching for unique fashion brands to share with you all. I feel most inspired to post when I discover a company with a killer style that I have never seen before. Brookes Boswell is one of those labels based out of Portland, Oregon that I stumbled upon whilst browsing through Instagram. Their studio specializes in quality craftsmanship of made-to-order hats that mix functional detailing with a classic aesthetic.
Before I go on to tell you how much I adore Brookes Boswell, let me just preface that I rarely wear hats (or find ones that fit). I know this may sound weird, but I have a teeny head that doesn’t fit into a standard small size hat. Luckily with the help of Brookes Boswell’s sizing chart and a friendly reminder to “please measure your head twice,” I found extra-small to work perfectly. What I also deemed helpful was the option to order custom sizes if necessary.
Another win for Brookes Boswell is their aforementioned classic styles that look great all year-round! The Wakefield Hat is my current favorite style. It is a traditional fedora crown made out of felt that is detailed with a subtle leather rope trim and raw edge. The hat’s lightweight design and navy color make it easy to incorporate in both warm and cold weather wardrobes. Thanks to this unique label, my hat wearing days have just begun!
