Toshio Yoshizawa, the Man of Many Hats
Having started out in finance, Toshio Yoshizawa was doing well for himself, but he risked it all in 1989 when he abandoned his stable career to launch his small hat shop in Tokyo. His ingenious idea came to him while watching the television, noticing how classy Jazz and Blues musicians looked in their hats. Yoshizawa began travelling the world, acquiring different headwear in order to train his passion.
Sharing his love for hats, he created his original brand CA4LA in 1997, which now has 25 shops across the globe and employs approximately 250 people. His style is both subtle and stylish, somehow daring and eccentric, but always elegant. His Instagram account plays testimony to the man’s pride for his own headwear, smiling out from under the brim.
