Style-Diet Shot – Kavi

“On matters of style, swim with the current. On matters of principle, stand like a rock.”

 – Thomas Jefferson

Kavi is wearing a 100% wool hat made in the USA by Goorin Bros.   http://www.goorin.com/hat-shops/yaletown  Kavi was looking for a distinctive quality hat to wear daily, as a signature style piece.  He asked me and other friends, going on a mission over the course of a few months.  Kavi chose well – I love the elegant 30s look, classic Fedora.  As Goorin says on their website, “The crease of the crown, the pinch at the front, and the snap of the brim makes the fedora the most expressive and personal hat shape ever created.” Kavi tells me that Goorin Bros organizes jazz evenings for their customers.  I think I want to be a customer.

The Style-Diet Shot celebrates individuals with unique style, wearing at least one article of clothing acquired via the Stephens’ Sisters Shopping Diet. It must be local, sustainable, second-hand/re-purposed, inherited or ethically produced. If you can’t find clothing fitting that criteria then it must be from a country with stellar human rights records.

    Excellent hat. Why don’t more men wear beautiful hats? DOWN with baseball caps worn backwards. Or forwards. Or upside down.

    Thanks Jenny! I’ve been a fan of fedoras since I first saw the Godfather movies when I was a teenager. I think it’s time for a straw hat for this sweltering heat though…
