Harold Krishna Esq.

Posted: Jul 23 2012

The other day a charming elderly gentleman of the cloth, Hari Krishna denomination came in to Pokit dressed in his familiar pink robes and asked me where he could buy a boater? Naturally, I directed him to Lock and Co in St James’. He was quite specific in his request, wanting “a stiff straw boater, the kind I used to wear at school” in his clipped and forthright English accent. We discussed and debated the difference between the ugly Harrow hat and true boater and he told me how sad he was to have lost his old one in India and then he left.
I do hope he was successful. Just picture that......
