Was finally able to pick up a pair of JMM (Enzo N/B) a fortnight ago after my local stockist got them in for me. Blown away by the quality of them and adore the frame and fit. Definitely going to be picking up other colourways and frames in the future.

Haha thanks! Will be a little while until my next pair as I've made some other big purchases recently but the Havana or Amber Enzos will definitely be next.

Not to derail the thread, but I don't mind Nick Fouquet. He certainly fits into the "Southern California Gothic Noir" vibe, and obviously isn't for everyone. There's another hatmaker who lives in the Mohave Desert, Todd Fink, who I really like. He was a skateboarder and lead singer of the Faint who turned hatmaker several years ago. I feel his hats go more naturally with JMM, if you're into that look. He even pre-distresses his hats (with fire, no less). Sometimes he has deals where he does custom at no upcharge. Seriously considering the "Public Opinion" here:



Looks too costumey. When would you ever really wear that in the Bay Area?

Isn't that a question you can levy on literally any interesting piece of fashion? When would you really wear a casual suit/ Ring coat/ Acronym parka/ Visvim noragi/ drape cut sport coat in London Lounge horse blanket tweed, etc in the Bay Area?

Like everything in my closet, it really depends on how I feel and what the occasion is. A beat up hat would be easier (at least for me) to wear and seems less pretentious. Here’s one from Recapitate with a simple black t-shirt:

When I had long hair ( like Nick's ), I'd feel comfortable wearing one of those.
Now, I don't. And I'm tall and lean.
I'd look like a floor lamp.
