    Help with {date or identify} a hat please.....!

    Well sorry, i thought you perfectly knew the hat world and the manufacturer's offering. For instance, I thought that it had become common knowledge that anyone willing to have something close to Indiana Jones' hat had to turn to the Akubra Federa IV Deluxe OC. Here the hat looks close to an...

    Panama hat questions?

    It was around 80€. it's a mid quality regular toquilla hat It's like there is a noise when I press the brim downward for instance, as if the straw was a bit dry. A bit like when you sit o sorrel chair (well obviously less creaky than that)

    Panama hat questions?

    Hat creaking : what can I do ? I got this brand new Panama hat. I received it yesterday. However, it seems to be "creaking" a lot. I steamed it gently and spray water on it. It is a bit better but the straw does not seem as flexible as on my other Panama hats which are astonishingly silent Is...

    Hat(s?) : exclusivity vs diversity

    Thanks for your replies ! I knew that was lots of people who like diversity ! I have never come to the point where I like several two hats equally. For me when you reach the top, it's hard putting a hat on to match my daily style when you know there is another one at home that you truly prefer...
