    Thank you!
    I am building an entire part of my wardrobe for the rest of this year around this hat. New jackets already come in, working on multiple pants and a new pair of boots currently.

    Just back from the airport. It is easy to travel in a cap. I got an upgrade to First Class both ways. On the way home the attendant said " a classy cap should travel in First Class." She was 100% correct! I give thanks for the comfort a cap provides - on a plane and off.

    Thank you, D! Yeah, I might do as you suggest and leave it as is with the Center Dent.

    Thank you, Mike! The finish on this hat is really nice. It has a lot of depth and texture and feels like velvet. The pictures don't do it justice. I've done my last few conversions with this finish.

    Now that's a switch, it is usually me that is following your lead. :) I could have used a leather sweat band, but their "comfortable DriLux sweatband" is pretty comfortable.

    What do you think of this one?

    The warning about the venting being wavy and uneven concerns me. Haven't owned a shantung yet, and I wonder how it would hold up when the Garden Island is being watered.

    I have a few shantung hats and I just don’t like them. Same for the Florentine Milan. That said, the vented crown Open Road hats look good and I’ve almost given one a try.

    Last year I was looking at the Stetson twisted Panama Open Road (real Panama) that looked pretty good. My problem is that I tend to be hard on summer hats and I want something the breaths well and can take some hard use. As I don’t expect my summer hats to last indefinitely like I do with felt so I don’t buy nice “straw” hats as I can’t amortize the cost over decades. I do like my two hemp Stratoliners. Have you looked at Peter Bros.? The website was a mess and they are redoing it, but last I checked it didn’t have much but they make some intriguing straw/hemp hats at attractive pricing.

    About a month ago while at Buckaroo Hatters.. I reblocked and re ribboned my Buckaroo Ranchero.
    It now has a wide black ribbon and a center crease, I really love this hat!
    It's what I am wearing today!

    The color is the famous "Amiata" no other information

    Late afternoon near sunset, walk around.
    The felt takes, finished "luster" takes another light and becomes different from the morning
