Custom top-hat maker extrordinaire, H.W. de Winter named his business, L'Hiver, after his namesake in French, the country where his craft originated. Better known as "Boy", a nickname he picked up as a child from American soldiers staying in his home. H.W. chuckles as he explains how the soldiers would call "Hey, boy, get me cigarettes, chocolates . . . " And the name stayed with him.
