Wow, who would have thought this hat was possible? I know I sure didn't, but here it is- a copy of what Cuenca has been doing for years, a faster produced lighter weight brisa weave, but in the durable Montecristi straw! It's a NEW hat weave so encourage these weavers to continue by purchasing this new weave style!
It is a very durable hat unlike the Cuenca version of it! This hat did not go through the harsh chemical treatment that a Cuenca hat would always go through. The straw is also tougher and nice to work with when shaping. We're offering all the best things we normally offer in a Montecristi hat, like leather sweat bands, inner liners or sweat protectors (optional) or pinch protectors to further increase the life expectancy of this hat. Let's keep them weaving more!Similar to a Cuenca single woven but much more durable.
Blocked in a long oval, can be requested in any type of oval (standard oval, long oval, or X-long oval)
Crown: Front 3.6"/9cm, Back 3.8"/9.5cm
This Panama hat is the classic fedora style, known also as a center dent crown, due to the dent that runs down the center of the crown.
The classic fedora is blocked on a semi long oval hat block rather then a perfectly round one to fit the average person better.
Snap brim on the front causing the brim to tip downward slightly and upward in the back just a little.
Stingy Brim: Almost the smallest brim we can make and still be called a brim! Snap brim on the front causing the brim to tip downward slightly and upward in the back just a little. Not a lot of shade protection, primarily it is a style thing! Some people just look great in short brims! This is a very unique brim for its rather small size.
Each and every Panama hat we sell is handmade right here in Ecuador, so no two hats are exactly alike.
