San-Francisco’s Haight neighborhood, named for the intersection of Haight and Ashbury Streets, is famous for being the center of hippie and counterculture in the 1960’s.
Priced out of other San-Francisco neighborhoods, the beats found cheap housing in this quaint neighborhood. It was here that they pursued their utopia of free speech, free sex, free drugs and psychedelic music. During the 1967 summer of love, psychedelic rock became mainstream and Scott McKenzie’s song “San-Francisco” shot to the top of the charts.
In the 1980’s, the Haight became the epicenter of the comedy scene that launched the careers of Robin Williams, Dana Carvey and Whoopi Goldberg.
Today, you can still find hippie shops that sell tie-dye and incense tucked between modern yoga studios and coffee shops.
The Haight retro trucker has a mid-profile crown, curved brim and snapback closure (OSFA - one size fits all).
