Break North – Cool Hats for Grown-ups

Break North was founded by Steve Anderson and Reza Hamid, two college friends looking for quality clothing with minimal branding. In the summer of 2016, they successfully funded a Kickstarter campaign, which gave them the opportunity to produce their first line of hats and tees. Since then, they’ve continued to build their collection as a two-man operation.

Break North clothing company is dedicated to producing durable wearables that will stand the test of time. The brand’s target audience is people willing to simplify and deepen their relationship with what they wear.

Understated, Responsible and Enduring

To guarantee the highest quality, Break North chose to work with domestic manufacturers and artisan weavers. Since Break North works continuously with the same manufacturers, they can ensure that all items are produced in a way that is consistent with their values.

For their 5-panel hats, Break North uses a fabric called Harris Tweed, which is made of 100% pure wool and woven by hand in the Outer Hebrides of Northern Scotland. Harris Tweed is fashioned using techniques developed in these remote islands over many centuries. The fabric is warm but breathable, comfortable and durable.

The design of their 5-panels is, true to the Break North ethos, clean and minimally branded. The hats are unlined and finished with sewn eyelets. Due to a nylon strap and plastic closure, one size fits all.

Break North’s 5-panels are available for $59 at their webstore.
