A good fit: Carmelo Anthony’s new hat collection
NBA veteran Carmelo Anthony not only has embraced his role as a key member of the Thunder, he’s upping his fashion game with a new hat collection by Goorin Bros.
It’s the company’s first collaboration with a professional athlete. Called Fresh Greens by Melo x Goorin, the limited-edition collection includes five unisex models made of 100 percent wool and made in America.
Anthony became quite the style man about town while playing for the New York Knicks. He often polished off his look with a hat and chances are now he’ll reach for one with his name in it.
The Thunder forward was involved in the design and named each of the hat styles. The Melo Mint has an open crown with a stiff brim and leather sweatband in green. The Everyday Camo is a center-dent fedora in camouflage pattern.
Prices range from $180 for the Camo to $300 for the Melo Mint. Each hat is lined with green satin and a Melo x Goorin logo, Anthony’s signature and the inscription: “Knowledge of self, wisdom and understanding.” They’re available in sizes small through extra-large and are packaged in a green and copper foil hatbox.
“As someone who has admired the craftsmanship of Goorin Bros., teaming up with them was a natural fit,” Anthony said. “This collaboration was a valuable experience — being able to be a part of the design process and bringing my creative vision to life. There’s going to be more headwear to come from this partnership. This is just the beginning.”
The Fresh Greens by Melo x Goorin collection is available at goorin.com as well as its three stores in San Francisco, New York City and Las Vegas.
