The Needles Bermuda Hat reaches to a silhouette from a source far outside canonical Americana: the street style of 1980s New York City. Popularized in the 80s by hip hop artists such as Run DMC and Grandmaster Flash, the Bermuda-style bucket hat became a staple accessory for many members of the hip-hop subculture in its early years.
This reimagining of the classic style puts Needles' attention to detail and artistry on full display, with a seasonal, all-over Neddle's Diamond logo pattern.
