Dan Synder began Corridor in 2013 out of his sixth-floor walk-up in the East Village, NYC. Remaining the sole designer for the brand, Corridor blends New York sensibilities with classic Northeastern prep, resulting in what Dan likes to call ‘New American Sportswear’. Becoming known for classic, well designed and functional garments, the brand has gone from strength to strength and continue to bring their vision to fruition though rugged textures, informed fabric choices and pleasing colorways.
Here we have the Corridor Canvas Cap, which is designed in NYC and made in Connecticut. They feature a moderate mid-height crown which means they’re not too short on your head and have a solid profile. They’re also adjustable and finished with a brass tab and slot for the excess strap. But what really makes these stand out is the color and fabric choice. The offering runs the gamut from natural canvas and washed duck that fit right into fall/winter to a lightweight coral canvas and faded herringbone twill for the warmer months. Or if patina is your thing, check out the Japanese overdyed indigo or the waxed and waterproof summer tan.
The market may seem awash with the humble baseball cap, but for less than $50 you’re getting some pretty special fabric choices and a made in the USA piece of headwear, which comes from a brand that prides themselves on working in a responsible and ethical manner. Can’t say better than that, right?
Available for $45 at Corridor.
