I heard they were made in the hat maker upstairs (or maybe it was next door) to Nepenthes. Don't think he's a big name hence why it's not a collaboration or mentioned. I'm with you on the price. I was expecting $150 to $200. As much as there is buzz, I don't think they will sell before sales season. I would probably cop at 30% off.If you get it @gettoasty, I definitely want to see a fit pic!
