Why isn’t Number 6 wearing a straw boater? It seems that all the male chess pieces are wearing straw boaters. Mind you 6 only ever wore a straw boater twice. Once was for a few moments as he was being discharged from the hospital on the day after his arrival. He tossed it into the back of the taxi and was seen never to wear it again. On the second occasion was on his graduation day.......as it was played out in the Embryo Room. Perhaps Number 6 simply isn’t a hat man. The straw boater is also known as a New York Skimmer.
Be seeing you
