EDITOR'S PICKS: SS15 Summer Style featuring Panama

The Panama Hat is handsome, lightweight and provides shelter from the sun. This straw hat of Ecuadorian origin is made from Toquilla leaves and gets its name from the hat being worn during the construction of the Panama Canal.

The Cutler done in the Cuenca Weave is our take on the “urban cowboy.” Whether you’re lounging by a campfire or at a weekend brunch this hat will make you look like a sophisticated survivor.

Try the Roll Up, a classic style that’s been around for decades, for that ‘old-wordly’ look. As the name says, it rolls up, comes with a carry bag, and can be easily tucked into a weekender.

The Purefoy is an ode to the heritage: a little bit Puritan with a lot of style, this hat looks great when paired with linen or selvage denim.

HOLLYWOOD: Survival Kit for Coachella 2015

You have one week to get desert-ready for this year’s Cochella. Last year with temperatures in the 90’s you are going to need more than knowing the lyrics to every David Guetta song to get you though 72 hrs of shadeless days and camping nights. Below is a list to help you survive


First, let’s talk about your head…The Bailey Western’s Chasin will keep the sun off and also keep you cool with it venting holes.


If you are looking for a hat with a more classic look but also something that will stand out in the crowd try the Zanzibar. It is sturdy enough to shield the sun and light enough to let some air in.


For the VIP man of style Bailey of Hollywood’s Montecristi is a legendary treasure. It is the world’s finest straw hat using 12-14 grade Panama and Italian grograin bands These are woven by artisans in Ecuador and shaped by our skilled craftsmen in Pennsylvania.


Other Options:

The Producer by Bailey of Hollywood


The Wicket by Bailey of Hollywood




Zip-Around Leather Wallet- It’s slim, but easily handles all the cash and cards guys usually stuff into a bulky billfold, and the added zipper ensures everything inside stays put. Plus you’ll look good pulling it out to pay for your $20 beer




Facial Fuel UV Guard- High level SPF 50 broad-spectrum guards men from daily damage and premature aging. The Caffeine and Vitamins C & E will make you selfie ready, by invigorating tired and dull skin.



Warby Parker’s Quentin has a polarized lens and a keyhole bridge with style for days. They also won’t break the bank and prevent you from completely losing your mind when you drop them crowd surfing.



Coachella Safari Tent- This habitat for two with a queen bed, outlets and air-conditioning, is the perfect place to enjoy a breezy escape from the scorching indie pandemonium.

With the tent you’ll also get VIP wristbands that grant you shuttle service and backstage access. And there’s a 2am noise curfew in these parts which means you’ll wake up refreshed and ready to properly chat up the ladies at the beer tent.



Sometimes bands don’t take the stage on time and when this happens, find an open patch of grass and pull out this frisbee made by WHAM-O.
