    My other Montecristi Custom Hat Works is a 100X pure beaver western. It’s a firm felt, but it has the nicest hand of any hat I own. Rick @humanshoes is finishing a nutria hat for me right now that I think might compare, but until I felt this hat I didn’t know fur felt could be given such a fine finish.

    I sent this one to Mike Miller at Northwest Hats to refurbish. This was the hat before sending to Mike.

    This is after Mike worked his magic.

    I have people from Ecuador tell me all the time how they can't make a tall, wide-bimmed hat anymore. I say, baloney.

    Sure, it's faster to pump out small, fat-straw, loose-weave hats that can be weaved in a day or two... but it's not what I want.

    These are great examples, @deadlyhandsome and @Bill Hughes !

    They have quite a few wide brim Panamas on their web site, but don't see ones with both wide brim and as high a crown as these examples. They are special hats.
