They huv a shop in Greenwich Village n'aw.  Or did when ah wis there a few years ago anyway.

You mean Goorin right? I think there’s only one JJs.

There’s another decent hat shop in the west village -  City Hats IIRC - on Bleeker I think. Been a while since I was in New York but hoping to get some sites there on my next project. Great for me and my wardrobe,  or so great for my wallet!

There’s loads of Goorins. I’ve been to the one on Royale Street in New Orleans and if you’re going to Vegas there’s one in that little side street that leads from the strip down to the entrance to the giant ‘London Eye’ thingy. A lot of their hats are indeed ‘supposed’ to be crushable but I’d be careful stuffing them in a suitcase for a long haul flight too!

Good to see JJs mentioned on Fifth Ave in New York. I met my mate in NYC in August 2002 to see The Who right after Entwhistle died. Got my first Panama there during that trip and wore it home. They now do them in several colours (‘Bowery’ style) and five more! I love that place!

Any good hat shops in Florida Rod,I'm over in the summer again. Staying near Orlando
