Stance NBA Socks

Stance Socks are some of the hottest dress socks you can find (including a D. Wade line…mhhf). They have just upped the ante with NBA Legends socks. Not only do they have your usual dynasty franchises (Lakers, Bulls, Celtics, and now the Heat), but they have some NBA legends including Dr. J from the free-throw line, Rodman on the boards, Walton in his prime, Hakeem the Dream mid-shake, and the cool L/R sock combo of Stockton rewarding the rolling Malone. These are some great stocking-stuffers for this upcoming holiday season. Definitely check them out.

Hat Trick – Fall Hat Fashion

Fall has finally arrived in New Orleans (I know we are a little late to the party, but what do you expect when you just have 2 seasons: hot and cool) and for me that means hat season. Well more like not-a-baseball-cap hat season. So today lets just look at some hat trends for this season.

The Pub Cap

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Pub cap is a beret style hat that can be worn backwards or forward. The most popular maker was Kangol  (the K from Knitting, the ANG from angora, the OL from wool). The hat reached the peak of popularity in the 1980s due to early hiphop artists LL Cool J, Grandmaster Flash, and later Notorius B.I.G. The hat was also made popular by the Lemonade/Iced-tea genius himself, Arnold Palmer and the hardest working man in hollywood, Samuel L. Jackson. Now its probably one of the most trendy fall hats (at least it is mine).

The Fedora

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The word fedora comes from 1882 play starring Princess Fedora (played by Sarah Bernhardt). Bernhardt wore the hat and it became the hat of women’s rights activist until 1924 after which men began to wear it. The hat was extremely popular from to 1920s to the early 1950s. Famous fedora-wearers including Bear Bryant, Tom Landry, Indiana Jones, and Michael Jackson. Now you can see one in any trendy hipster spot in your city.

The Porkpie

More of a transitional hat from the late summer to early fall, the pork pie became popular in the 1920s due to the dapper silent film start Buster Keaton. Keaton actually cut fedoras and several other type of hats to create the style for his movies. This hat’s heyday was the great depression and made it’s way back to relevance thanks to the great meth kingpin “Heisenberg” ( the alter-ego of AMC’s Breaking Bad character Walter White).

Of course you can find these hats in various fall hues of midnight blue, tan, grey, and black. And don’t forget to get creative with all the different materials available (wool, straw, tweed, and houndstooth).
