Falling Leaves Cycling Cap

Carolle and I have a certain 'Italian pride' for our limited edition Falling Leaves Cycling Cap.
We designed it based on Il Lombardia, 'la classica delle foglie morte' - the classic of the dead (falling) leaves. Made from black cotton/denim/spandex and a bold Italian tricolor under brim - we love the understated beauty.
Today is the 94th birthday of the 'Champion of Champions' Fausto Coppi. For us, Coppi is synonymous with dashing Italian cycling winning Lombardia a record 5-times (1946, 1947, 1948, 1949, 1954).
Here's to our Falling Leaves Cycling Cap and to the legendary Fausto Coppi!
