Mens Hats & Dr Martens Boots Available
Everybody loves a good comeback story, and the world of fashion, for example, is filled with many. Take a walk down the streets of any city in the world and you'll notice hats of all shapes, sizes and styles. Sure, there are still plenty of baseball caps, but companies like Kangol & Goorin have made hat wearing fashionable, functional and fun. Just take a look at all the stars wearing hats: actors, musicians and athletes have embraced the hat industry once again. Legendary guitarist Carlos Santana even has his own brand of hats, while Samuel L. Jackson wouldn't be caught dead without his signature Kangol. Imagine Shaq at a press conference without something adorning that huge noggin. As per Kevin Costner, he only wears Ventair Caps when golfing in Pebble Beach. There's no better way to make a statement and accessorize your basic, everyday wardrobe than to pop on a furgora bucket hat like the one Fred Durst, lead singer of Limp Bizkit wears. A leather Goorin driving cap will also make a fashion statement.
Another good example are newsboy caps from Brixton, Coal Headwear and Goorin, which have recently made a surging comeback worn forward by both men and women. Just look at Nicole Kidman and Julianne Moore who are in love with Kangol's tropic caps, wearing them around town to awards shows, movie screenings and magazine shoots.
If you are passionate about hats, or are just looking for that perfect hat for the summer, then look no further, Carlisle Accessories is where it's hat! See our extensive range of mens hats... read more/less
The History of Dr Martens Boots
The first Dr. Martens boots in the United Kingdom, (also known as Docs, DM's, Doc Martens), came out on 1 April, 1960 (hence known as style 1460 and still in production today) with an eight-eyelet, cherry-red, Nappa leather design. Originally Dr. Martens were made by a number of shoe manufacturers in the Northamptonshire area, as long as they passed quality standards. They were popular among workers such as postmen, police officers and factory workers. By the late 1960s, skinheads started wearing Dr. Martens boots. By the late 1970s, Dr. Martens boots were popular among some British punk rock and New Wave musicians, and soon many punk fans were wearing them. The boots and shoes then became popular among other youth subcultures. The punk rock band The Bouncing Souls got its band name from the reference from their advertising slogan "with bouncing soles".
By the start of the nineties, Dr. Martens had become wildly popular with young women, with some brides even wearing white patent leather pairs of the boots to their weddings. As a result, a bridal version of Dr. Martens was introduced in gold with white lace. In the 2000s, Dr. Martens were sold exclusively under the AirWair name, and came in dozens of different styles, including conventional black shoes, sandals and steel-toed boots. The Dr Martens brand is the epitome of Urban Chic & cool in the new millennium. Womens styles such as the Stephanie, Amber, Jenna, Mary Jane, New Authentic and Toki mid calf boot have become the new classics, not only stylish, but designed for long wearing comfort and durability. In this "disposable" world, it’s good to know that Dr Martens are still built to last!
