I have a book of seafarer portraits. A] So. Good. B] Unexpected style inspiration. C] I know it's a little odd but I have a sort of sea obsession. But to try stay on point, it led to an obsession of finding THE beanie to end all beanies - and trust me, I have lots of the bastards. This is where Stighlorgan comes into play. The Dublin based label produces dope accessories inspired by Irish nomadic living and the idea of travel, culminating in some of the freshest leather or canvas backpacks and slickest beanies I have seen yet. The head topper in question is made in Donegal, Ireland using a cable knit to represent the brands trademark rope detailing and I'm a sucker for a leather patch. The design is classic, suggests heritage and looks so damned sturdy and resilient the beanie perfectly encapsulates that salty seadog look I have been searching for. If I were a sea captain, I'd shop there. Maybe you should too. Take a look here.
