Based between Japan and the US, the Needles label—as well as its parent company Nepenthese—has gained a reputation for its reimaging of Americana classics through Japanese textiles and artisanship.
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 members of the hip-hop subculture in its early years.
This reimagining on the classic style puts Needles’ attention-to-detail and artistry on full display, with an all-over Needles ‘Papillon’ butterfly jacquard pattern. Other features include embroidered Needles butterfly logo, six-panel construction, and interior mesh lining.
Made in Japan from 100% polyester.
