Chef Brian Duffy has Custom Hat Created by Nogginwear
Nogginwear Designs and Creates Custom Hat for Celebrity Chef Brian Duffy
"Working on this project has been way too much fun for us; we love Chef Brian Duffy's flair, personality and most importantly his food," says Mr. Weldon, Co-Founder & CEO. Weldon goes on to say the fact that a small company like Nogginwear was chosen for such a huge hat lover of the likes of Chef Brian Duffy has us so honored and it couldn't be done without Chef Brian being a true down to earth person.
Chef Brian Duffy's custom hat can be seen on himself and the staff at his latest restaurant project Flying Fish Crafthouse located in the Brewerytown neighborhood of Philadelphia, PA where he has partnered with Flying Fish Brewery to open a casual urban eatery with an open kitchen concept using sustainable resources.
Nogginwear is totally unique and different by not just designing and manufacturing a different premium retail quality limited edition series numbered hat each month for monthly hat subscribers but taking it up a notch with Limited Edition Series, the Artist Series and the recently added Hunting Series. What truly sets Nogginwear apart is all the hats are made in limited quantity as well and when they are gone they are not reproduced.
In the last few months Nogginwear has signed some of the most well-known award winning artists in the cartoon/comic book world who are credited for their work at Disney, Hanna-Barbera, DC Comics, Marvel Comics, The Simpsons, MAD magazine and more; kicking off the limited-edition artist series hats with award winning comic book creator, writer Stan Sakai, creator of Usagi Yojimbo. Our hunting series features outspoken Facebook personality and sensation Hillbilly Weatherman.
Chef Brian Duffy (Spike TV Bar Rescue & seen on The Today Show), a customer, says, "It's one of my faves." George Karalias, a customer, says, "The quality and detail are unbelievable on my Usagi hat."
The Nogginwear business model and culture is also about giving back through established partnerships with non-profit organizations like the National Cartoonists Society Foundation, which sponsors events like Cartooning for Kids at St. Jude's Hospital in Memphis and recently teamed up with Smile Train, an international children's charity with a sustainable approach to a single, solvable problem: cleft lip and palate.
"It's about doing something different and unique while having fun providing a top-quality product and sharing it with our subscribers via Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, not to mention it's a great gift for the hard to buy for person," says Mr. Weldon.
