My friends from the platform Heddels just released their second collab: Heddels CO-OP 2: The Knickerbocker Quint Hat. They create collaborations with brands they admire which results in limited runs of specialized products exclusively made for the Heddels readers. For this 2nd collab they team-up with Knickerbocker MFG brand from Brooklyn – NY to create the Quint Hat.

The Quint Hat is for stormy nights, dark days and deep sea hunting. The hat is made from an 8.25oz. waxed cotton fabric and is water resistant and has dual front pockets. All seams are finished with natural cotton twill tape and it’s all closed with a vegetable tanned Atlantic salmon leather strap around a brass slider buckle. The hat is made in a limited and numbered edition run of 100 pieces and is now available on the Heddels site. Congrats guys with this great 2nd collab and keep up the good work! Looking forward to see collab number 3!

Read the full story of the idea, making of, production, etc. from this special collab on the Heddels site here.










The inspiration of the Heddels X The Knickerbocker Hat came from the character from the legendary Jaws movie, Sam Quint. For this collab they made a photoshoot as a kind of a homage to the character in the movie. The photoshoot was done by Eric Kvatek (famed lookbook photographer for Kapital, Prps, and 45rpm and many other brands).
