I'm pretty sure Macklemore, that Caucasian rapper from the Pacific Northwest, spoke of this hat in his song about wearing your grampy's coat and purchasing clothes from a thrift shop. Funny how milliner Goorin Bros. can smack it with an "Official Walter White" designation, and suddenly render this basic black porkpie into a pricey and coveted accessory for all Breaking Bad fans.
The limited edition release of the Heisenberg Hat debuted on July 18, 2013 in conjunction with San Diego Comic-Con. On that day, Goorin Bros. began doling out even smaller batches of their small batch of 1,895 meth-master headpieces. Like a true seasoned and successful drug lord, they will continue selling a few hats here and a few hats there on a daily basis until supplies run out. Or until someone can't pay up.
The Official Collector's Edition Heisenberg Hat & Box Set includes White's 100% wool felt noggin topper, interchangeable hat pins, a letterpress & serial-numbered Certificate of Authenticity, and an American-crafted hat box laced with blue meth crystals.
OK, I don't know if that last part is true, but I think it would be a nice touch.
Breaking Bad gets underway again August 11th, 2013, and there is much left to be resolved. Who gets caught? Who gets killed? Who rats on who? How many more times do we get to see Walt Jr. eating breakfast? Care to place a wager on the possible outcomes? Checkout the brilliant Betting Bad.
