The Berty & Gerty Guide to Looking Cool at the Camden Crawl 2012


Berty says: The golden rule for looking cool during the Camden Crawl is, in a nutshell, wear a hat! 

Throughout music history the hat has been a key accessory: think Marc Bolan wearing  his Top Hat on the cover of the 'Slider' or  David Bowie, Circa 1976,  in character as the Thin White Duke wearing his Fedora.  Rock and Rollers have always finished off a look with a fine hat, be it a Pork Pie  as  the star accessory atop a two tone tonic suit  or  in more recent years Pete Doherty wearing his staple trilby working his skinny jean rock aesthetic.

Berty & Gerty have welcomed a few famous  rockers in over the years looking for the ultimate  cool hat. Most memorably Meatloaf  purchased one of our black cowboy hats to wear at the Kerrang Awards.  Debbie Harry from Blondie also popped in to B&G in search of one of our Pork Pie hats on route to her performance at Latitude. 


         Top Tips for styling the rocker hat look: 

  • Tilt it on the back of your head for extra loucheness.
  • Add a peacock feather to the side of your fedora.
  • Girls wear a man's trilby or bowler for a sexy look.
  •  Work a massive floppy 70's hat with long hair.
