Shop now for Brixton shirts, crews, jackets, snapback caps and beanies. Brixton Manufacturing Co. started life as a manufacturer of innovative headwear including flat caps, snapbacks, trucker caps, five panel caps and beanies. It was founded by three friends in 2004 who wanted to create a hat company inspired by skateboarding, music and friendship. Their hats combined the underpinning values of innovation, high quality and classic American design. Brixton now produce a whole range of quality garments and accessories as well as headwear.
Brixton boasts an eclectic skate team, featuring the likes of 80s vert legend Jason Jesse, Krooked Skateboards pro Brad Cromer and bearded Boston wild man Kevin Coakley of former Blueprint Skateboards fame (when it was still sick). The brand also supports various surfers and musicians.
With the organic growth of the brand Brixton started to produce some accessories to go alongside the hats including wallets, belts, card holders and socks. These soon became sught after items amongst skaters and streetwear enthusiasts alike due to the design and quality of the items. From here the natural progression was to unveil some apparel to compliment their tasty hat and accessory lines.
The novel thing about the progression of the Brixton brand is that they moved towards a clothing line only after establishing themselves as solely a headware brand, and the Brixton clothing collection is now in greater demand in the United States than the hats themselves. But this hasn’t stopped them from turning out extremely mint hats with each new season, using all manor of original ideas and materials, so you can still cop a unique Brixton piece to rock on your dome. The stuff they make is timeless and understated, so pick up a steezy Brixton hat and you’ll be pulling it off your hat shelf time and time again for years to come.
