If the next few days are any indication of what's in store for our summer weather, it's safe to say (seriously knocking on wood) that summer hats will be out in full force, protecting us from those killer rays. And there's no better opportunity to stock up on various shapes—from baseball caps to floppies—than at the Goorin Brothers sample sale. From next Thursday, June 26, through to Saturday, June 28, visit the family-owned, SF-based company's headquarters in SoMa to stock up on a variety of styles. Doors will be open from 11am to 6pm the first two days and from 10am to 5pm on the third. Prices start at $10 and max out at around $20. So now there's really no excuse to repeat your hats through these warmer months.
