We are excited to present The Frank to you. The front two panels as well as the visor are constructed of Okamoto suede, this material is the best quality suede we have come across, it is extremely soft. The rear part of the crown is a printed wool. We have created the front panel to have a bit of a Tuck and Roll feel to it. Tuck and roll was a popular interior option back in the 1950′s and 1960′s in lowrider’s and hot rod’s, this style was also featured on our IBN Jasper collab back in 2009.
This hat is available in cream/brown as well as Navy. Make sure to pick yourself up one of these unique pieces along with the entire Fall 2012 collection, now available within the Quintin webstore and worldwide soon for only $32.
Starting off 2012 with the right foot forward…Digging into the treasure trove of one’s vintage fabric archive can produce amazing results when it’s executed with Seal Team-Six precision. Utilizing authentic US Military issue materials we introduce the second installment of this stellar collaboration.
The Ludwig Van X QUINTIN Scout Series, is the newest offering from L.A. based Ludwig Van and Quintin Co. This time a cache of decades-old US Military fabrics including WWII-era Army twill and Vietnam-era Mitchell camouflage along with vintage Duck Canvas make this current collaboration one for the ages.
The 6-panel cap features vintage Japanese broadcloth lining, leather embossed patch, selvage denim stash pocket inside and mixes the light-weight nylon fabric in on the under side of the bill. This cap is a true piece of craftsmanship and looks as good on the inside as it does on the outside. The limited run will only be available online at Quintin Co., Ludwig Van and Digital Gravel as well as at Proper (Long Beach, CA), and Conveyor @ Fred Segal (Santa Monica, CA) while some will be released in limited quantities in Japan as well.
Manny Santiago headed to Puerto Rico earlier this month for his Prince of Puerto Rico contest. Here is a small Quintin edit from the trip.
In October we took some of our US BMX and Skate teams down to Mexico for a little journey over the border.
After being introduced to the Intelligentsia Coffee family, we realized that a lot of our goals as a company were aligned.
First and foremost, we take pride in creating our actual products in the USA. While we are manufacturing and QC’ing every single hat, in our factory located in Lincoln Heights, Intelligentsia is taking the time to roast all of their coffee beans, meticulously creating and inspecting their product, right down the street from us. Control over the process of actually creating the perfect hat, or creating the perfectly roasted coffee bean means ultimately providing a better suited product for our respective customers.
We’ve found a strong commonality in our ability to leave no details untouched.
This collaboration is a celebration of the idea that the customer deserves to buy into more than just the product that a brand offers, whether that be a freshly brewed cup of coffee or a hat, fresh off the production line. We are happy to present to you a fine collaboration for the end of 2011. Look for Quintin Co. select coffee soon on our online store.
We are always working at expanding our family, our good friend Estes up in the Pacific Northwest suggested we look at adding on a crew of DH/Freeriders. Geoff Gulevich is one of the guys Estes suggested. Geoff murders it on any terrain. He recently traveled to GreenRiver Utah.
For those that don’t know, Green River is a town in Utah, and for any freerider looking to film a video segment, the ability to ride and build here is endless, it is a mecca. The grey and gold covered cliff mesas are home to some of the most uniquely shaped landscape that you’ll ever see, the best part, it’s all shaped in a way that caters to the bike. Erosion here causes the hills to have the perfect balance between smooth rolling hills and sharp knife edge cliffs and ridges, together these build natural lips and landings.
