Like the lid on a boiling pot, a hat helps percolating ideas develop faster, a fact discovered by Thomas Edison 150 light bulbs too late. Join the world’s hat-donning brain trust with today’s Groupon: for $50, you get $100 worth of hats and hat services at Hat Lounge in Durham, located in the Northgate Mall.
Hat Lounge’s cap-covered walls support stylish fedoras, Stetsons, and other dapper skull-toppers to swathe conspicuously naked heads in both warmer and cooler months. Conceal misspelled cranium tattoos with a hat crafted by Bailey of Hollywood ($50–$129.99), an American headwear headliner since 1922 featuring favorites such as the everyday-appropriate Mannes ($89.99), or put the kibosh on escaping body heat with a Kangol cap ($29.99–$69.99) that unites hip-hop flair with British refinement under a branded mark of the most stylish marsupial. Hat Lounge also imports a variety of fine European fedoras, including Italy’s Borsalino brand ($175+) and Mayser hats ($99.99+), a German brand founded in 1800, the same year hat scientists engineered the first sentient bonnet.
In addition to bringing head gear to sun-shy North Carolinians seven days a week, owners Pablo and Eliza Alvarez refurbish overly loved accessories by cleaning, reshaping, and blocking battered hats, returning them as early as the same day to accommodate impromptu royal weddings.
