The Montecristi semi-calado has vent holes woven in and an open weave crown. It is a Montecristi hat woven in Montecristi Ecuador but with vent holes woven into the otherwise airtight weave pattern. This elegant and mostly unique weave design permits a much greater airflow through the top of the crown. This style keeps your head the coolest of all panama hats due to the extra airflow. It's built for extreme weather conditions!
Since there are so many different types of patterns of the vent holes woven into the crown, this is generally only available in our stock items on an individual basis as stock is available. So if you see one you like, you better grab it up ASAP!
Sub-fino Panama hats are our most basic type of hat with a weave that is still of great quality, but not as tightly woven as the other grades.
This Havana Panama hat has the classic C crown style, known also as a Fedora C crown or teardrop crown, and blocked in standard oval.
The standard crown height of this Havana model is 3.9" - 4.1" measuring from the brim to the top point of the crown in the front of the hat. The back of the crown is a little lower then the front giving this hat a leveler appearance from a side profile, the back measures between 3.7" - 3.9" and 4.3" - 4.4" on the side of the hat.
Snap brim on the front causing the brim to tip downward slightly and upward in the back just a little.
Stingy Brim: The smallest brim we can make and still be called a brim! Almost no shade protection here, just style! Some people just look great in short brims! This is a very unique brim for its small size.
There is a small charge (as reflected in the price already) since to make This stingy (short) brim because it requires us to actually unweave a larger brim since the hat bodies are turned in from the weavers as a standard size of about 2.75". So we then need to find a hat body that is not yet closed and can be unwoven, then we unweave about half to one inch. We then weave the straw backwards into the brim itself to close the outer edge of the brim, thus requiring two more expert weavers to do more work on your brim before we can even begin to block it (shape it).
Each and every Panama hat we sell is handmade right here in Ecuador, so no two hats are exactly alike.
