Like old school pimps, most Mafioso dudes wouldn’t be caught dead in simple sportswear—these cats have been working the grown and sexy look long before Jay threw out his XXL jerseys. alife’s new collabo with Kangol pays homage to la cosa nostra with "Il Padrino" (yep, "the godfather"). The souped-up fedora comes with interchangeable hatpins (the solid gold joints are fabricated by David Yurman’s son Evan) and a custom box that's eerily reminiscent of a casket. All 50 headpieces are handmade, with a few early releases hitting alife's NYC and Vancouver stores before the year is out. The end of the fitted is nigh.
