i bought a very nice looking straw hat at a farm store once, and had it only a week until i was on a tractor and a tree limb knocked it off and it went under the brush hog and chopped it up . I was thinking of buying a stetson Bryce Palm Leaf Straw Wide Brim Gus Hat

It should be noted that a Cuenca is more breathable because of the lower quality weave. The Montecristi that I have is woven so tightly that it doesn’t really allow for much airflow, so it goes better as a dress hat than something you want to wear out in the hot sun. Also, the Montecristi will never be true “white” because they will not bleach them beyond the natural “bleaching” process done with a smoker. They would consider it a waste because bleaching makes the straw brittle and they simply won’t do that to a Montecristi hat. I tried. Lol I got told no way. I even had to request stiffener on the brim because even that, they considered lowering the quality of it. But they did it, and they did pick out the clearest and lightest straw they had, so it’s pretty close to white! Sorry for rambling. A true Panama is one of my favorite hats. Mine is a Fino Fino Montecristi Havana and I absolutely love it!
