Kangol – Food Bucket hat

Bucket hats are living their moment of glory now but if you think about it for a second it’s been a while since the streetwear community started to give love to this “fisherman hat”. Think about Sen Dog at the beginning of Cypress Hill saga. Even before, during the mid 80s in NYC Kangol was a fashion statement heavily influenced by the success of hip hop movement. So if you thought that this brand that invented the Bermuda Casual hat could not relate to the new school trend of reversible bucket hats, you are far from the truth, my reader. Check how sweet is Francesca M with this Food Bucket hat. Two versions for the same reversible hat: a solid color tobacco with a little embroidered hot dog or a pop art influenced dotted pattern with slices of pizza, fries and hot dogs. No need for flashy colors: a black and white print is more than enough. Wear one version or the other according to how you feel and the Kangol woven label stitched on the hem of the visor will guarantee that you are a headwear connoisseur. Check how the flap stays stiff, to let you avoid sun rays or rain and how the shape of this bucket hat has the perfect proportions. Don’t forget that Kangol started to craft fine headwear since 1938 so this cap is just a way to show you in 2016 that his natural evolution is flawless. All this typing while I stare at this hat made me hungry. Do you mind if I leave for a snack and I’ll see you here real soon? Pictures courtesy of Maurizio Milesi.
