Cool. Now it makes sense that he's a magician. I wonder if they'll do something similar at the NYC event.
If you ever make it over to Salerno, check out Cappelleria Russo Giosue. I got a Montecristi from there last summer. The hat buyer at Paul Stuart liked it so much he started giving me advice on its upkeep.
