This Hat Costs $1,200

and It Sells Out Every Year

Look, we know you may not believe what you just read.

Believe it.

When Brian McDonell and Corey Roth founded Melin, they were on a mission to fill a gap in the growing world of fashion-forward casualwear—there was no hat that matched the innovation of Buscemi's Sneakers, Del Toro's Slippers, or Hudson's Denim. So they set out to give the ballcap a total rebuild, and address the fact that the most visible piece of anyone’s kit was limited to a cheap, boring hat.

Enter The Stinger. Anything but boring. It takes the very concept of boring and deep-sixes it for good.

Full-grain bison leather front panel and top visor. Stingray inlay trim. Silky suede red undervisor. And if you don’t want to scuff the suede? How about Melin’s signature enamel seal to catch your thumb when you take it on and off?

How about an 8-pt VS diamond mounted in the Melin logo?

It’s the result of Brian and Corey creating a hat without any restriction. Period.

The Stinger might be the literal crown jewel of Melin’s total reimagination of what a hat can be, but Melin’s mission doesn’t end there—which is good, because once again, this year's edition is sold out.

But Brian and Corey’s drive to turn the hat game on its head truly has no limits. They’ve created a whole range of bar-raising headwear, a collection of hats that step up your game at the beach, the club, the links, and the slopes.

Take The Ace. It’s Melin’s vintage fit, a twist on a classic featuring sueded cotton crown panels sourced from Italy’s iconic Solbiati fabric mill. It’s the perfect hat for that first whiskey sour after the back nine.

Or The Amphibian. It’s Melin’s signature Split fit, engineered to go harder than you under any circumstance, whether you’re paddling out, hitting the trail, or anything in between. And it floats.

Or The Bar. It’s Melin’s trademark hat, made from the same grade of leather used in luxury automobiles, emblazoned with a gold bar that lets ‘em know there’s a new standard in town the moment you walk in the door.

Or The Voyage. A jet-black, all-leather ninja. Hell, the only part of the hat that isn’t lamb nappa leather is the buckle on the luxury watch strapback.

Whatever your game is, Melin's here to help you take it up a notch or ten. Because if Melin dreams it, they do it. Come catch their vision and join the next evolution of modern headwear.
