Following a stateside release at Ronnie Fieg’s own KITH stores in New York at the tail end of 2011, his highly sought after collaboration with LA brand Quintin and historic American woolen mill Pendleton, is finally set to release in the UK.
The collaboration saw Fieg step away from the realm of footwear, and his regular collaborations with Asics and Sebago, for once, and turn his hand to a set of six Quintin snapback caps, in their trademark ‘alternative 6 panel’ shape. Hand picking a selection of his favourite Pendleton wools, Fieg worked on six combinations, each hat different from the other due to being cut from a different section of material. Three of the snapbacks feature Pendleton wool on the crown and underbill (navy, black, and grey), and three feature the patterned material on the top of the brim (red, charcoal, and navy).
An incredibly limited number of the hats will be available from 3 select UK retailers this coming Friday (January 6th), from 10am. Only two of the six colourways will be available from each store, so you’ll have to shop around. It’s great to see a project of such prestige, and of a limited nature such as this make it’s way to the UK. The caps will be available from Foot Patrol, Soleheaven, and Urban Industry this Friday, a detailed look at all six follows below.
