22 Grand Hat

The average price of these hats is about 22K. If that sounds like a lot, keep in mind that the exchange rate has changed since I took the photo in 2018.

At the time, an iced coffee was priced at 3K, as in 3000 won which is the currency of South Korea. A French pastry as good as anything in Paris would set you back a little over 4000 won.

Now the rate is more favorible to someone starting with US dollars. That means that one of the cool lids will cost you about $16.50 which is more expensive than lunch at Applebee’s but will give you something that can last a lifetime.

Certainly talking about one’s 22 grand hat is worth the purchase price the next time you’re wandering around Seoul.
