Giuseppe Borsalino was born in Italy in 1834. A former errand boy and apprentice, Borsalino learned his craft at the Berteil hat factory in Rue du Temple, Paris. Several years later, the designer returned to his hometown of Alessandria where he opened a design workshop with his brother Lazzaro. Borsalino hats are quirky, stylish and sophisticated. The collection features everything from classic fedoras in acid bright and camo prints to flat caps made from cashmere and silk.
