Fresh off the machines is Unwashed Denim’s Raw Selvedge 5 Panel Camp Hat. The brand’s owner and sole employee, Will Berman, is a rather unassuming candidate to be at the head of a one man brand. If you trek back to our interview with Will from last year you’ll find that he somehow finds time to run a growing brand while successfully juggling his studies and life outside of work. Almost forgot to mention, he’s still in high school!
Don’t let his young age fool you though, this young man knows what he is doing and his knowledge shines through in his line of handmade denim accessories including wallets, cases, keychains, and most recently five panel hats.
The hat is made of 12.5 oz raw indigo selvedge denim sourced from Japan’s Kaihara Mills. Additional features present in the hat are a selvedge detail stash pocket on the inside of the hat, brass hardware, light blue chambray visor lining, and an adjustable Unwashed Denim branded leather strap across the back. The hat is handmade completely from start to finish in Brooklyn in partnership with Knickerbocker Manufacturing.
Hats are available for $65 on the Unwashed Denim website.
