If Meyer the Hatter is old-school New Orleans (you can see my post here), then Goorin Bros. is the trendy little upstart down the street - in the French Quarter, to be exact. Goorin Bros. has some history of its own, but I believe its a relative newcomer to New Orleans.

Meyer had classic panamas and straw fedoras from some of the more recognizable names, which are more to my liking. But Goorin Bros. had a kaleidoscope of headwear on display. The quality appeared to be decent, and the prices were a fraction of what one would pay for a Borsalino.
All-in-all, a nice-looking shop.
