LA hat brand Quintin have hit us with a huge drop of their famed hats for Spring/Summer 2011, in variety of shapes, styles and colours. Quintin choose to specialise in the fine art of headwear, and they do it well, with snapbacks, fitted hats, and all sorts of other creations in between.
The brand run everything from their downtown Los Angeles HQ, designing and manufacturing every piece in house. With their roots in skateboarding and BMX, Quintin have created a line of hats that expands out of that scene into street culture as a whole, with sports-inspired pieces like the LA fitted and their Basic ‘q’ snapback relevant the world over. I was surprised to hear that the brand also produce hats for some of my favourite up-and-coming streetwear brands from the US and Canada (and the UK), a part of their business that looks set only to grow in the coming years.
The SS11 line features a variety of pieces, but for me it’s the ‘Collegiate’ snapback, available in black, blue and grey, and the extra special ‘Outdoorsman’ (above), that are the standout pieces. The full line is available online from Quintin UK now, check out some shots of the hats below.
