Do Your Research
With January taking a brief vacation, the east coast has been looking surprising English. Fortunately, we’re the adaptable type.
This Trapper Hat from Heritage Research takes after hats that have sheltering North English heads since the industrial revolution. It’s waxed cotton—with just enough waterproofing to withstand the winter rain—and a Stormy Kromer-style flap to fend off any gusts you might encounter. The design was taken from classic northwestern hunters caps, with fabric lifted from a factory north of Manchester and stitched together without leaving the country.
As for the Heritage Research itself—you guessed it—it’s Japanese.
