‘Breaking Bad’ Heisenberg hat by Goorin Bros. back for the holidays

Goorin Bros., the San Francisco-based hat maker that made the distinctive black porkpie hat sported by Bryan Cranston’s Walter White on AMC’s “Breaking Bad,” announced Tuesday that it has reissued a holiday run of that hat.

Called “The Heisenberg” hat, (the name is a reference to White’s alter ego) it was first released in July to commemorate the show’s final season in a limited production of 1,895 pieces packaged in special yellow hat boxes bearing Walter White’s visage.


The reissue is the identical model: A made-in-America porkpie hat in 100% wool felt from Rambouillet sheep in Texas with a 1 7/8" brim, 3 3/4" side wall and a hand-tacked grosgrain ribbon around the outside. The words “The Heisenberg” and “Goorin Bros.” are printed in yellow on the sweatband inside the hat. (Note: The reissue does not include the box that was part of the earlier sold-out run.)

The $149 hats are currently available through the Goorin Bros. website and if there’s a die-hard “Breaking Bad” fan on your gift list be advised that Dec. 16 is the cutoff for orders being ground-shipped to arrive by Christmas.
