Adopt a new kind of beanie
Occasionally, while looking for beanies for this blog, I get frustrated that more companies don’t think outside the beanie box. I mean honestly, there are only so many things you can say about a pom beanie after you’ve already talked about 4 or 5 this year. In these cases, I start to look outside of the typical companies that we, as snowboarders, tend to gravitate towards. In this case, my search brought me to Adopt.
Adopt is a pretty amazing headwear company out of Toronto, Canada. Toronto, in case you don’t know (I didn’t before a few months ago) has a pretty rocking indie fashion scene going on. Adopt is a direct reflection of this. Originally I was only going to feature one beanie, but so many of their looks are unique, that I thought I’d show off a bunch. The 08/09 features mostly subtle. muted colors, but the occasional splash of vibrant jewel tones is there. The little details are what I really enjoy. The twist at the top of the Surfbird rather than a normal pom, the crocheted patterns on the Dove and Hummingbird, the embroidery on the Bambusa....It’s just a really neat collection of ideas that I enjoy. Another thing I enjoy is that, like any good company, they have an Eco line. Hurray for trying to lesson your impact on the environment!
Adopt is carried in plenty of stores around the US and Canada, so hopefully you’ll be able to find what you like. Check out their site for more beanies!
