I was introduced to the Brixton brand at my local hat shop. This Californian-based company specialises in iconic snap caps and beanies to bowery flannels and charters. The company fuses vintage style inspiration with a modern edge.
You might like to start out with a classic black or army green Fiddler cap, or an Essex Bucket Hat.
If you want a good quality flannel, then have a look at the Bowery ones – available in a range of fun colour combinations.
The muscle tanks and oversized tees might become your summer staples.
The classic Heist beanies come in a range of classic colours: black, hunter green, military olive, heather grey, athletic orange, coyote brown, light heather grey and gravel.
The denim chore coat is based on a classic French design – it will be an investment staple in your wardrobe for years to come. I’m lusting after the faded indigo overalls. Both have plenty of pockets for your mobile phone and bibs and bobs.
Did you know that chore coats were worn by artists, labourers, railroad works and farmers?
You might like to channel your inner weekend artist with the olive coveralls. Or create a cute diner hostess outfit topped off with a classic navy bowling shirt.
Johnathan Thurston fans are going to have to purchase the Thurston Pants in gravel.
This streetwear brand is one where you can steal your boyfriend’s clothes (making it a win-win solution). I’d go with the Carolina blue and teal green fern flannels. You might want to work out a payment plan to purchase a couple of charter oxfords, plaids and fun prints. And top it off with a moss green fedora.
Look out for the crossover range that allows you wear them in the water and later on the land, as the fabric features moisture wicking and water-resistant finishes.
Brixton has collaborated with local Ambassadors like Robbie Rickard, Jimmy Roche, and many other international skaters, surfers and artists.

It started with a hat. Growing up and finding inspiration in the 90s music scene of Southern California, a group of friends shared a diverse set of interests ranging from music and art to skateboarding and surfing. Their unique dynamic gave birth to a brand with a desire to create connection through classic style. Looking to the past for inspiration, vintage headwear was our origin. Classic hats styled in modern ways inspired us to design our first product, The Hooligan.
Brixton continues to deliver timeless style inspired by the past, built to live in the present. #Doneproper
