Gentlemen’s Corner: Wale on his Beanie Brand ‘Wrking Title’
WRKING TITLE’s inaugural fall 2013 collection includes variations on five beanie styles: The Taylor, the Mantle, the Hyperspread, the Pebbles Pom Pom and the Icon. The hats are knit using a luxe wool blend that sets the brand far apart from its competitors.
“I’ve always loved beanies and have been wearing them since middle school,” Wale admitted. ” My favorite beanie was purchased at my local corner store in DC. It was a simple black beanie. It was all of $4 and fit me [perfectly].”
Although the leader of the New Black Soul is regularly seen in tailored suits and dress shoes instead of Nike dunks, he hasn’t completely abandoned his sneakerhead/streetwear style. His personal style is evolving, and he knows the style sensibilities of his fans are evolving too.
“WRKING TITLE is a line for everyone,” Wale insisted. “[who] knows life is nothing without grind.” —Christopher Harris
