You know that sinking feeling you get when you come home from an awesome overseas trip, having spent your last dime on the amazing shopping and sorely disappointed in the lack of original fashion available in Australia? I know the feeling all too well. In fact, after I returned from my last trip to London, I exclusively shopped online at Topshop, Office Shoes and Urban Outfitters for a year. It only lasted a year because I drove myself into some serious debts…but that’s a story for a different time.
The guys over at Mad Hata sympathise with this particular dilemma faced by throngs of Aussie travellers. To help ease the pain, around five months ago they started an online boutique sourcing original overseas hat labels and selling them on this meagre island we call home. Specialising in caps and tees, their unique patterns and designs are sure to go down a treat. My personal fave is a cat printed cap from The Decades appropriately titled Pu$$y in my lap. But then again, I’m a sucker for a pun. Did I mention it’s free shipping in Australia? I’m sure a lot of Surry Hills hipsters and Newtown lesbians are losing their shit right about now.
