My new hat.

This is my ?¢‚Ǩ?ìHavana?¢‚Ǩ? styled Montecristi from Optimo Hats. I got it as part of their annual ?¢‚Ǩ?ìFino Club?¢‚Ǩ? Montecristi acquisitions. It?¢‚Ǩ‚Ñ¢s the finest Montecristi hat that I own and I got it at a great price (especially considering how fine the detailing is). Enjoy

What a work of art! You are no doubt extremely happy!

I spoke to Kevin at Optimo, and confirmed that this year's offerings were BETTER than the prior years for straw Montecristi Super FIno.

The one I got (for a friend) is spectacular, and extremely tight, even, and pure in the weave and color.

Let me explain, I gave up my standing Super Fino order this year so a good friend could buy one. He's delighted.

GREAT HAT, and good choice in ribbon!

Great Hat!

What a great looking hat, and I like the ribbon also.

That hat would go well with anything. I think I like the "Havana" block better than the "Belaire".

What are the deminsions on this hat Adam?

Man, that's unbelievable! Really nice lid.

Is there a description or pictures anywhere documenting how one weaves straw that finely?

Holy shite, that's amazing! Thanks for this.

"It should come as no great surprise that people don't want to weave anymore. The amazing thing is that they ever did it in the first place."* That just about sums it up!
