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.
