Whether you are person who enjoys the classics or is drawn to more of a modified fedora, this is the hat for you. It took months for a Ecuadorian straw worker to weave the raw material that I used to hand block this hat. This unbleached, natural straw does not have to be worn with the brim down in the front and turned up at the back. A fabulous trending look is to have the brim flipped down all the way around. The music scene tends to wear it flipped up, all the way around.
