Make way for some new fedoras on your hatrack, because Goorin Bros, a 119 year old hat store, is opening up shop on Lincoln Road this March. The brand's stores are small and generally look like antique milliners shops, with rustic shelving and rows of bowlers, fedoras, Panama hats, newsboy caps and even trucker hats.
It looks like the kind of place where old statesmen of the 1910s and 20s would have come to get their dapper headwear (which they probably did, because it was founded in 1895), only it's been time warped into this century, interestingly enough onto a street in Miami which some say is slowly losing its historical roots.
But although it has a neighborhood hat shop vibe, the fourth generation owned brand is anything but. Currently Goorin has 29 stores around the country, from Portland to Brooklyn, and more to come including Miami. We've inquired within to find out what's in store for this new Lincoln Road addition, but so far additional info is under the brim.
