Hats are making a comeback, according to employees at Goorin Brothers Hat Shop, which opened a franchise on Brattle Street this past August. The store's selection includes a popular fedora named Mortimer, a funky line of baseball caps titled Animal Farm, and a $140 hat called Johnny Blue Eyes with fold-down ear flaps. As the shop settles into its new home, The Crimson stopped by to learn about its history, merchandise, and which hats will keep you warm on snowy October nights.
