You Can Finally Buy Tom of Finland’s Iconic Queer Caps

Tom of Finland has teamed up with Finnish brand COSTO to create an original capsule of hats, inspired by queer archetypes that appear in the artist’s erotic, hyper-masculine work.

Click for ToF’s capsule lookbook, modeled by the “Official Tom’s Man” Terry Miller and photographed by Josh Paul Thomas.

The collaborative collection features four designs, each offering updates on classic silhouettes: the Baru, a seven-paneled baseball hat, Hupla, a classic driving cap, Gona, a train conductor style, and Jair, a traditional fisherman’s cap.

Available today, ToF’s COSTO hats can be purchased in a range of materials, including denim, leather, and wool, all lined with repurposed ToF prints from Finnish heritage brand Finlayson.
