Just sent Tumi an email regarding their type of hat (weave style and grading) and also Panama Bob, asking which of his fedora block Cuenco hats are best for travelling/rolling. I realize I am fixated on the rolling, but you guys know how it is...   Will report back to you.   Lachy: That panama from Indiana J's looks more of the Ceuncano block. Judging by the size of the indent and the height from the brim.
If you are going to roll, a few other things I've read from http://www.panamas.co.uk/hats/hat-care-and-hat-rolling/   1. Buy the white panama, not the natural one 2. Need a finer grade weave. Thus, the 25 dollar Panama Bob just won't cut it.    I am finding that the photos of the Cabalero and Ceuncano blocks from Panama Bob's website make the wearers look like amateur golfers, as the height of the crown is bloody too high. I would be more inclined to order the Havana....
On the Tumi hats (which are Cuenca made), it appears people are rolling them frequently for travel (a feature I would want).    http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Tumi-Fair-Trade-Fedora-Panama-Hand-Woven-Ecuador-Fino-extra-fine-Grade-/330762735745?pt=UK_Hats&var=&hash=item7dbea94174
Re: Panama Bob   Are they rollable?
Strange - I was looking at Panama hats today as well. Any suggestions on where to buy? Visited City Hatters today - quite exxy overall, and the only foldable Panama they have is in the colonial style...   I have been looking at  http://www.panamas.co.uk/hats/men?cat=42 http://www.tumi.co.uk/panama-hats/panama-hat-fino-detail (with good reviews on amazon.co.uk)
Sorry, Vass lasts beat AE lasts hands down. I cannot effing believe we are even having this conversation lol
Herring must have a ton of aussies buying their shoes...
@Isolation, your Dream suits/garments are excellent. Stick with that. How many fittings were required and over what timeframe.
Well done, Foxy! Nice pick up, mate. I just missed you at DM. Tried out the unlined flex chukkas. Very very comfortable but needed to size down by a half. No color 8 longwings at the moment - have to get in the queue and also the Horween shortage debacle. Color 8 PTBs looked really substantial with double leather sole. Other styles included split toe derbies, one tassel in leather, one in suede. A few longwings in suede. Overall, good choice of styles - not doubling up...
Those G&G chukkas look so sleek. Gawd. My size. Must. Resist. Argh!
