I think I'd probably buy two anyway (given that shipping is a fairly steep $36 from PB no matter if you order 1 or 2 hats I think.) One nicer Montecristi for walking around town in, and an el cheapo Cuenca for travelling/beach/boats/rolling. Be interested to hear what Tumi says, though.
Oli, on a lighter note, don't you only ever wear one brand of leather shoes...?More hat ideas:Another caballero I think: [[SPOILER]] http://www.brentblack.com/pages/inthemovies.htmlhttp://www.thefedoralounge.com/showthread.php?48636-Panama-dress-hats-in-moviesThey seem to be particularly popular in Indiana Jones movies...
The hat itself is just a template it seems - the look all comes from how you block it and steam the brim.I kind of like the PoW up and the back down at the front:
What is more expensive?Shipping is free over $150.Seriously just stop you look awfully stupid. I am starting to see where LonerMatt is coming from.
Yes, it did.Strands in my size went down to $240 on Amazon not long ago (once again) and they sent out a 20% off code at the same time as they are want to do oh, I don't know, all the time. Add in cashback and free shipping and.... oh you can do the math, right?Have a look for yourself:http://camelcamelcamel.com/Allen-Edmonds-Strand-Perfing-Walnut/product/B001TDKZZM?context=trackerJust for laughs, here's the Amazon price tracker for some more popular AE...
My understanding is that any Panama is rollable, but that some styles and weaves work better, ie an Optimo. http://www.thefedoralounge.com/showthread.php?44213-Rollable-Panama-Hat-and-Hat-Tube http://www.brentblack.com/pages/howtorollapanamahat.html http://www.brentblack.com/foldable-panama-hats-for-travel.html *edit to be honest, if you're going to travel with your hat often I reckon you'd be best to get one of Panama Bob's 25$ panamas specifically for travelling, and...
The thing with Navy is you don't quite know what Navy you're going to get... too light or shiny in the sunlight and it'd be quite flashy I think?
The overwhelming on-line recommendation at the Fedora Lounge is Panama Bob, who actually has two websites:http://the-panama-hat-works-of-montecristi.myshopify.com/http://www.panamas.biz/
Hard to tell what they look like. To me the Caballero seems to be slightly lower. [[SPOILER]]
I am leaning towards the latter actually (teardrop/Caballero). Seems to be a bit more classic but I don't really know. Results in a crown that isn't as high, I think?I think I'll stick with the classic black ribbon - it's already so noticeable to wear a hat in town as is.I will probably grab one of Panama Bob's cheaper hats for summer (would like to buy local at OH, but they won't fit my enormous head...).Either a Natural Cuenca, or a Montecristi if I spent a bit more.OH...
