Shop Talk: Makins Hats

FADER stylist Mobolaji Dawodu wears a lot of hats—we know this much is true. But where do they all come from, we wonder? Here are a billion answers to that question, all under the same roof at Makins Hats on 35th Street.

Take notes, but don’t steal Mobolaji’s look or anything.
