Panama Hat Thread

Montechristi Semi Calado panama hat from Montecuadorhats. Size 58 with the brim at 8,5cm and the crown at 10cm. I think this is in fact a women's hat, but I wanted it anyway to see if my assessment of the weave was right. It was; this is a finely woven hat. Quite floppy too.
Looking at the website of this company they seem to have finely woven hats on offer for good prices. The sweatband is fabric and the blocking is round rather than oval, which is consistent for a women's hat. If I wanted to convert it to a men's hat it would need some work. PM me if you want this one to convert it.

It makes me think of @Bill Hughes
I think Bill has been showing restraint in keeping his collection under control lately.

I don't have any of his straws but Bill did sell me a couple of his felt "seconds" :) A One Hundfed and a Brass Rooster.

Hi! Does anyone know what style of hat this is? I suppose it is a Gambler? In glancing at online pics of that style it looks like most have a round crown. This has a teardrop shape with a pinch at the front. I thought PHD had such a style but now I do not see it. Thanks. This is my uncles old hat. He cut a figure back in the day with it. And was interesting in countless ways. (Hat in pic looks shorter brim but similar band.) I plan to have a hat like this old one made for me.

Ask PHD if they are willing to make you this hat. No reason they can't. It looks to be a mish/mash of a few different styles.
