There has been more progress on the felt planter's hat from Leon Drexler, which seems as though it will be ready just in time for the season. We chose the ribbon, an earthy gray around the crown that complements the lighter colored binding of the brim. The brim itself is a little wider than it was on the first go-round, and the crown a little taller to maintain the proportions.
I was frankly so moved by the photograph that I ordered more cigars, breaking a vow I had made to abstain for the balance of the year. But to my eye that hat would be incomplete without one.
