I decided after my last trip to Europe I needed to get a foldable Panama. Hats and long plane rides don't go together well. I looked around several online shops, and didn't see anything I liked much at the lower price range. Decided to bite the bullet and get a Brent Black. I decided on a model in the midpoint of his 'Premium' models. The entire process took about three weeks from time of order to delivery. I communicated with Brent several times via email, and he could not have been more helpful and accommodating. The hat arrived today, and it is beautiful. I'm adding a few pictures.
