Samuel L Jackson creates hat line

Samuel L Jackson has created a range of golf hats with KANGOL.

The actor is known to be a long-time fan of the famous headwear brand as well as a keen golfer.

The Pulp Fiction star has looked into his own wardrobe for inspiration and used his favourite colours as well as iconic KANGOL patterns to put together a refined collection.

"The range of hats incorporates Samuel L. Jackson's personal touches through use of his favourite colours, purple and yellow. The SLJ Jacquard print on the P2i Golf Spitfire [model] was inspired by a vintage hat from Samuel's personal KANGOL hat collection to create his own unique print. All hats in the range contain an interior 'KANGOL Golf by Samuel L. Jackson' woven label," a press release for the collaboration states.

Samuel has previously revealed how golf has helped him to stay on the straight and narrow.

The Hollywood legend discovered the sport at a time when he was coming to terms with an alcohol and cocaine addiction that had plagued him for years.

"It is something I can do that occupies time I would otherwise have spent doing very destructive things. I have a sand trap and a putting green in my backyard at home, and a clause in all my contracts that says I have time out from filming to play golf twice a week and have lessons. It gives me a sense of peace every day," he told British newspaper The Independent. "The golf course is a great place to be, and to learn to live with yourself, finding out who you are, where before I just ran away from all that."
