You'd be hard-pressed to find another six blocks with morecharacter than the Delmar Loop neardowntown St. Louis.
Music. Food. History. People-watching. You get it all here, and while it's not as "famous" as other music meccas of the USA, like Music Row in Nashville, Sixth Street in Austin or Beale Street in Memphis, there's no questioning St. Louis' role in music history.
In fact, the Father of Rock & Roll, Chuck Berry (a St. Louis native himself), played at least one show a month at Blueberry Hill in The Loop for 209 consecutive months.
It's this authentic, bona fide ethos that drew us to draw on the Delmar Loop to name this hat. There was something about the area's cool, confident vibe that we liked. It doesn't care if you've never heard of it — it's just going to keep doing its thing.
So whether you're a music buff, foodie, or just want to check out the world's largest revolving man-made moon (all 3,000 pounds of it), enjoy a stroll down one of America's best streets. We promise you won't regret it.
The Delmar is a stiff, mid-sized-brim hat with an upturned brim. Its crown is somewhat of a mix between a teardrop fedora and a cattleman's crown.
But it's the trim that we think makes this hat. With a distressed tonal thick grosgrain band, it gives the air that it's already seen some sh**. You'll get the impression that this hat is showing you the sights, not the other way around.
The brim also has one isolated strip of edge-wrapped grosgrain — a really cool little touch.
