My apartment building has a roof that I’m technically not allowed on, but because my landlord hasn’t set foot in Brooklyn since the middle of March, I’ve been spending a considerable amount of time up there to retain any semblance of normalcy.
It’s not working, but the ritual is pleasant enough and has also given me a reason to reinvest in unstructured hats. And if I’m in the market, I’m going to start my search with orSlow’s US Navy Hat— now available in a two-year wash and splattered with paint — because standards apply, even to goofy stuff.
Crafted in Japan with a 100% cotton denim fabric and well-washed for a worn-in feel, this one features a floppy stitchdown brim with a bound edge finish, an interior cotton herringbone band and an unstructured six-panel crown.
And don’t let anyone tell you that there’s no Rooftop category of clothing. Rooftops are the new beaches and balconies are the new parks. Get on board.
