I have had Stetsons (not those large hats seen in Spaghetti Westerns) for over ten years but I keep losing them. They are slightly larger than Andy Caps and I tend to leave them in taxis or cafes. I lost my last one somewhere in Toulon three weeks ago when filming Jonny Wilkinson.
You can only find them in John Simons shop in Covent Garden and so I set off to find the shop and searched and searched and searched but alas my sense of direction was awry. At least that's what I thought until going online and searching for it to find it had been closed a few years ago but hooray it has been reborn at 46 Chiltern Street, London W1U 7QR (www.johnsimons.co.uk
Yesterday, I went with the intention of buying another one and surprised myself by settling instead for a Belgian cap made by City Sports (1898). It's almost identical but suited me better. I will though be back for a Stetson when the new stock is in, in September.
