Heisenberg’s Hat in Breaking Bad
The phone is ringing off the hook at Hats Plus: “Do you have a Heisenberg hat?”
For those of you who are uninitiated into the cable drama “Breaking Bad,” Heisenberg is the nom de guerre of a character named Walt White (Bryan Cranston) who starts the series as a high school chemistry teacher who has been diagnosed with lung cancer. Wanting to better provide for his family after his death, Walt starts a crystal meth lab with a former student in order to make some quick cash. It turns out someone with a chemistry degree is a rare thing in the world of drug cooking, and Walt is doing way better than he expected.
When he learns he isn’t about to die and law enforcement and rival drug dealers are catching wind of his illegal activities, it become obvious Walt needs a whole lot more than a chemistry degree to get by in the world of illicit drugs. Remarkably, the show kept the tension and interest high for 5 complete seasons. In the episodes leading up to the big show finale, Walt started wearing a black pork pie with an upturned brim.
Since then, everybody wants a “Heisenberg.”
There are three great pork pie hats that will serve as excellent “Heisenbergs” for our customers. The most affordable option is the Bailey Darron. This is a crushable wool felt design that is durable, handsome and easy to take any place.
The black pork pie hat we carry that most closely resembles the hat worn by Heisenberg/Walt is the Dynafelt Pork Pie Hat. This blended wool and fur felt hat looks almost identical to Heisenberg’s hat when you snap the brim up and remove the feather.
If you want the classiest Heisenberg look, you gotta have the Biltmore Ashford Eleganza Pork Pie Hat. Made with genuine fur felt and given a high-gloss silken soleil finish, this fedora is light weight and very distinguished while still maintaining a tough edge with the brim snapped up and the feather removed.
