Sand Pantone colours
Stone Roses

Essential headwear for this Summer is the 80s Casuals Bucket Hat. Cotton and Nylon, so therefore quick-drying, the hat takes us back to the late 80s 'Second Summer of Love' and the hedonistic 'Rave' and 'Madchester' scenes. The bucket hat was a firm favourite with The Stone Roses Alan 'Reni' Wren during this period, so much so that it became known as 'The Reni Hat'.
Also as Ibiza became the emerging European holiday destination, the bucket hat became a necessity against the searing heat on the island.
Our reincarnation comes in two colours, a navy and a sand. One size fits all. A larger leather badge is being produced and will be used on the finished design.
The hat is still in production and won't be available until the beginning of June, just in time for the holiday season.
