  • Who are the Goorin Bros? A Short Hat Story Worth Sharing!

Ready for a journey through time and style? Well, buckle up because we've got a tale that's as classic as the Fedora and as fresh as the latest trend in town.

Let's step into the world of Goorin Brothers, a brand that isn't just about hats; it's a story that began in the Steel City, Pittsburgh (not Philly, folks!), in 1895. Cassel Goorin, with a passion for hats as grand as the city's bridges, laid the foundation. Fast forward to 1921, his sons Alfred and Ted took the reins, turning it into the iconic Goorin Brothers.

Now, you know a brand's legit when it survives generations, right? Cassel's hat legacy snowballed (no pun intended) after becoming the official cap brand of the 8th Winter Olympic Games in 1960. From Cassel to Alfred Senior, and then to Alfred Junior, the hat journey continued. And guess who's steering the ship now? Ben Goorin, Alfred Junior's son, is the man in charge.

But it's not just about history; it's about evolution. Goorin Brothers hasn't just adapted; it's thrived in changing times. They've set up shop all around the globe, but the heart remains in the US, where it all began.

Now, let's fast-forward to 2003, where Ben Goorin, probably wearing a hat that'd make you jealous, introduced the Farm collection. Animals like The Swine, The Beaver, The Cock, The Goat, and The Ass became emblematic of Goorin's reinvented classics. And here's the cool part: these aren't just hats; they're collector's items. Some models are rarer than a four-leaf clover, making them the crown jewels of hat fashion.

In 2022, the spirit of human connection became the muse for Goorin Brothers, weaving their legacy into a timeless mix of classics with a contemporary twist. These signature pieces aren't just headgear; they're a statement. Seen all over the world, they connect people who see things differently, committed to a new perspective.
