The Lincoln style revival has taken its time getting started, but it looks like it’s finally coming around.

This “Abe” stove pipe hat from Quintin is part of the larger 21st century Abe project, which brings artists together to celebrate Lincoln’s mark on contemporary times. There’s a handful of artists and musicians involved—including The National’s Bryce Dressler—but so far this is the only style item.

The brim gets an update, and it comes equipped with a historic note from the man stuffed in the ample top in true Lincoln style…but the appeal is still a bit more historical than sartorial. Is it too much to ask for a commemorative suit?
