I bought it way back in high school. My friend and I stopped at a garage sale on a whim. I saw it hiding under some junk and pulled it out. The price tag said it was a dollar. I haggled down to 50 cents.
When I started this tumblr I knew I wanted to incorporate myself into some of the things I would make. But since I have to spend so much time in bed, my hair always looks like it has been molested by pillows.
I thought I could solve this problem by wearing a hat. During my hipster days I bought one of those Kangol things. I gave that a try.
I soon realized that only Samuel L Jackson can really pull off the Kangol. I looked over at my wall and saw the bear hat hanging there. I figured it might be a more humorous solution to my chronic bed head.
What I didn’t expect was how much people would love the bear hat. I got tons of messages. Many wanted to know where to buy one for themselves. But I’m pretty sure this thing was made in the 70s and there is little chance of finding another one. And since people loved it so much, I just kept wearing it.
