    I’ve been searching the Lounge and have come up with a few pointers—some from more than a few years back—regarding shaping and straightening brims etc on Panama hats.

    Now that Art is retiring, would anyone have a recommendation about where to send a Panama for reblocking/cleanings? Optimo, JJ Hat Center come to mind but I am sure there are others.

    I live in Savannah. Panama hat of some sort everyday. Wish there were a place nearby, indeed, anywhere in the SE USA where I could just walk in and drop it off but I recognize this as fantasy.

    Perhaps there is a site I am missing and would certainly welcome any guidance,recommendations,or suggestions.

    Appreciate your help and thanks to all; the Lounge is a great place.

    Try Tom Gomez of the Gomez Hat Company. He mainly specializes in Panamas and straws
