We are, indeed, men of similar sensibility. I don't know about the super fino fino, however. Panama Bob recently told me that the >1800 wpi Montecristi that I've been considering won't be available until fall, if ever. Why I'm not really sure. I'd hate to think of what I'd have to pay for a hat of this quality from BB, Milton Johnson, or even Optimo. I'm confident that Bob will come through for those of us who are in the market for these high weave treasures. Have you been to Saratoga during the summer racing season?
