    Want Hemingway’s Big Fish Energy? There’s a cap for that.

    Do you daydream about sitting on a creaking deck chair somewhere in the Florida Keys, sipping from a sweating glass of dark rum, rereading The Old Man and the Sea while a cool ocean breeze gently tickles your silvery beard, waiting for the woman with whom you recently shared vigorous but emotionally detached lovemaking or the local boy who helps you untangle the nets to bring you your Oysterman cap so that you can shield your eyes from the harsh midday sun (which you hate but also respect)?

    You do? Well, we’ve got some good news for you, Cosplay Papa: Quaker Marine Supply—the Philadelphia marine wear company which rose to popularity in the 1960s when its iconic seaman’s cap was worn by none other than Ernest Miller Hemingway in photos for a profile in Life magazine—is now selling its newest summer collection at a Nolita pop-up store on Mulberry Street through the end of September.

    Pick up your very own Hemingway hat for the low low price of only $58. How will the fish ever respect you without it?
