In the middle of the Peconic River there lies a small, private wooded island. The water flows around this quiet sanctuary out into the great Atlantic Ocean. Like the waters of the Peconic, the cables of this hat meander along its length with a soothing symmetry, creating a classic, unisex cap or slouch.
