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

I think I’ve bought all my hats in New York except one I got when I was at a conference in San Diego. Shopping isn’t great in the state where you’re considered dressed up if you have long strides on.

Anyway Disney is exactly 90 minutes to our house so get yourself over - remember we are 30 minutes to Clearwater which won Best Beach on Tripadvisor. We have plenty room if you want to kip over.

Give me an idea how many are coming so I can know how much haggis, porridge, neeps and deep fried Mars Bars to lay in.

OK thanks, looks like we have just 1 night the same in SF. Could meet up for a beer if you like.
That sounds nice! I get in that evening on the 8th, but I'll ping on here to see if you are available.

Just at the bottom end of Market Street is an Irish bar called Foleys that does decent pub food. There’s also a canny restaurant nearby (John’s?) olde worlde wood panelled place with pictures of Sinatra et al on the wall and the menu claims that Dashiell Hammet used to scran there while he was writing The Maltese Falcon. Worst city I’ve ever been in for panhandlers so watch your step.
