Having recently run the studioRUDO Signature Line SnapBack, my interest was raised in the guys who produced it from RUDO's designs, the LA based Quintin Co.
RUDO explained that his decision to use Quintin in terms of production was based on the quality and craftsmanship of their finished pieces.
For Spring/Summer we see Quintin drop a varied collection from 5 panels, pill boxes, through to fitteds and snapbacks.
The brand's creative inspiration is taken from the heritage of the company's base in LA and is translated well into a choice selection of caps. Shoe guru and connoisseur Ronnie Fieg recently received a Quintin "Outdoorsman" and is quoted on his blog saying -
"I don’t usually do this but this hat is truly amazing. This Quintin Outdoorsman is perfect for this season. The material contrast between the wool and suede makes this a must have."
With props like this why wouldn't you want to investigate? This month the brand will rep at the Las Vegas tradeshow "Slate" and as part of their promotional material have created a dope little 6 panel hybrid, which can be seen amongst the lookbook shots.
It consists of a lightweight Carolina Chambray make-up in baby blue with charcoal under visor and the expo's 'Slate' logo on the crown.
The hat is not available to buy but just shows that Quintin's workmanship does not let up when it comes to promotional materials, where some companies would give stickers Quintin supply what they do best. Big.
I will most definitely be keeping my eyes on the company and investing very soon. Feast your eyes on the lookbook then hit up the webstore.
