LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT

The hat arrived this afternoon and I refuse to take it from my head. It is just great. Naturally, I will avoid using it for golf and will search for a plastic cover in the event rain should strike.

Thank you for your expertise…and the resurrection!

I will wear my fedora while in Florida, and should I get back to Hawaii, I will stop in proudly to see you…wearing my fedora, of course.

John B., Ann Arbor, Michigan

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhh, Mr. Black!!!

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhh, Mr. Black!!!

What a hat!

It’s BEAUTIFUL!!! The color is luscious—deep and rich. The slight difference in the way the strands have aged make a beautiful pattern really showing off the gorgeous, even, tight weave that was done on this hat. The color of the hat blends perfectly with the brown band. This is indeed, one fantastic hat. Thank you so much. I’m really impressed with everything about this hat, but am just amazed by the richness of the color of it.

Talk to you soon and thanks again for a wonderful piece of wearable art.

Keith H., Oakland, California

In the midst of the second snow storm in as many weeks, I came home from work early today to avoid driving in what was sure to be a traffic nightmare at rush hour. On my porch I found a large box from you. The hat has arrived, it fits perfectly, and I am very pleased. Thank you. Now I just have to wait for some warm sunny weather!

Charles K., Falls, Church, Virginia

The Hat arrived today…Its perfect. (But that’s not news to you I’m sure!) Thanks for expediting and doing a great job…count me as your newest fan.

Cheers and all the best

Dave D., New York, New York

Back in March, I ordered a Classic Fedora from you. It was a present from my mother to me, and you handled the whole process so smoothly. I just wanted to drop you a note to tell you that I receive so many compliments every time I wear it—and I just LOVE wearing it. The fit, the feel, and the style are all top notch. Of all my hats—and I have quite a few—this is my crown jewel.

Thanks again, and I hope to order from you again in the future.

John C., La Grange Park, Illinois

My Montecristi arrived yesterday. It is a thing of beauty and fits perfectly. I look forward to proudly debuting it in Monte Carlo in about six weeks. Thanks for such a gorgeous product.

Russell C., Iraq

The marvelous hat arrived in yesterday’s mail!

I tried it on and was instantly transported to a Dashiell Hammett novel.

It’s perfect!

Thank you very much for your expeditiousness…your fine work will now attend the Kentucky Derby in style.

Others I meet will now know of BBB.

All the best,

Dennis Ziemienski, Glen Ellen, California

[Designer and Illustrator of the Official Kentucky Derby Poster 2006]

I picked up the hat today. It is magnificent. I look great in it. My wife wants one, my receptionist wants one and she wants to buy one for her husband. I think I may get another. Great job. It is just what I was waiting for for 10 years. Thanks so much and I am glad I bought the hat from you.

Steve C., Sparta, New Jersey

Please forgive, not sure if I thanked you previously. The new Fedora is PERFECT, again you did a wonderful job and I appreciate the ‘quality upgrade’ at no charge. I am glad you were feeling ‘lazy’ and wanted to share some ‘good will’. I DID notice a different ‘feel’ to the material, guess I owe you a beer sometime (how many times have you heard that one?). I hope you are able to enjoy your upcoming trip, no telling what is going to happen to me, especially with Hurricane Wilma bearing down on us. You take care, talk to you soon.

Michael M., F.E.M.A., Somewhere Disastrous

[Michael told me he might write a book about his job experiences. I suggested the title: “My Career Is a Disaster.” Watch for it.]

I have not communicated with you since you completed my Panama hat this summer. First, let me say thanks. It turned out wonderfully and fits well too. I am very pleased with it. I wore it a few times this summer and thoroughly enjoyed it. I got many compliments, even from my wife who noticed the quality right away. Thanks for the recommendation on the first sweet spot level.

I will probably consider a second hat. I will be in touch. Great job on safeguarding the nation’s lakes too. No news of any missing lakes is good news.

I will be in touch. Thanks again.

Keddrick K., Washington, D.C.

Did I ever email to say (a) I got the hat safely and (b) it is a thing of beauty?

Well it did and it is.

Michael B., Gloucestershire, England

This hat is absolutely amazing! I must confess that I wore it straight away with superior results! I cannot thank you enough.

I hope that you have a spectacular week!

Joe T., Glendale, California

Arrived today and on my head as we speak. It is just as I had hoped; what a wonderful and sartorially elegant thing to own—a hand-made Panama! It will influence as well as enhance my wardrobe from now on. I am simply delighted—please quote me on that—and will ensure that any passing comments are converted into a recommendation.

Graham F., London, England

Just got it. Beautiful!

Many thanks again,

Kevin F., Wayne, Pennsylvania

Received the two hats today, Jim is thrilled, it looks terrific on him, the beautiful weave of the hat transforms him into a handsome guy. I did not expect mine to be this nice looking! That was a surprise! Both fit perfectly. Needless to say, we are two happy customers. Thank you for thinking of the strap, I forgot to tell you I wanted one.

Thank you again for having such a great product!

Jim and Sonja M., Houston, Texas

I got the hat today and it’s PERFECT. Exactly what I wanted. You really have the touch. Thanks for a great fit and a wonderful hat!

Bob V., Livermore, California

Just beautiful....!!!!! Can’t wait for number two! Thank you for your beautiful work,

Renee D., Great Neck, New York

Just got the hat and it looks and feels great. I think I’ll blow off work and go sportin’ about.

James R., Cincy, Kentucky

[My old Kentucky home town…]

I’ve been very remiss in not writing to you sooner about the replacement hat for the one I ordered in the wrong size. I’ll cut right through and then share a short story. The new hat is absolutely perfect. Everything I had hoped it would be, and you were great to see that it got out of your shop before your own trip to Ecuador! I have a hat or two I will use for everyday-work-about stuff, and I will always treasure yours for those most special times.

I believe that most men carry with them in the back of their minds, a list (often not spoken of much) of possessions, dreams, ideas, not yet achieved. Your hat was on that list for me.

Ray L., San Jose, California

The hats are amazing. I love ‘em. Don’t know which one I prefer. The old one looks sensational. I have never seen such a beautiful hat!! And the new one…PERFECT!! They should be in your Website!!

Thanks again and congratulations on your truly outstanding efforts. You are a freaking genius!

Allan G., Beverly Hills, California

[The Gatsby he loved was inadvertently left behind on an American Airlines flight in July 2007. He realized it was missing while he was still in the terminal and tried to recover it. He was told it had been incinerated. A fine Montecristi hat is a security risk? Right.]

1st: I got back from my vacation to Cape Cod yesterday and my hat was waiting for me. It looks great, fits great and will be a wonderful addition to my “Napa Valley chic” wardrobe. Is there any way on the internet that I can give you some kudos? I know that there are ways for people to rank on-line businesses. Thanks again for your great product and service. If your travels ever bring you our way please do not hesitate to contact me—I would love show you how we do things in the Napa Valley.

2nd: The Optimo that you sent me was a huge hit at my son’s wedding! One of my close friends wore his Fedora so the Panama hat was well represented. In fact the G____ kids liked my hat so much it provided them the impetus to consider one for Dennis. I was very excited to be able to provide your name to Suzanne, the daughter, who is the point person for the order.

By all means, next time your travels bring you to the Bay Area be sure to give me a buzz—I do get a great deal of satisfaction from people enjoying my handiwork!

Michael Weis, Winemaker, Groth Vineyards & Winery, Napa Valley, California

Just wanted to let you know I’m still lovin’ the Fedora you made for me. I feel good every time I put it on. It’s the most comfortable hat I’ve ever had, in fit as well as style.

Bruce B., Honolulu, Hawaii

[This is the same Bruce who some weeks later began to hone his skills as a lake guard.]

Just a note to let you know how happy my husband, Jack, is with his new hat. We were on our way out of town when it arrived, so he had it for our trip. Not only has he received many compliments on the good looks of the hat but he loves the way it fits and feels. I’m certain we will continue to do business with you. Your service is as good as your product. I love giving my husband a gift he uses and likes, and this one he wears every day.

Kathleen F., Orlando, Florida

A few weeks ago I spoke with you on the phone and learned a lot about your hats. I enjoyed speaking with you and ordered your Gatsby Fedora. It arrived about two weeks ago and I have been meaning to let you know how beautiful the hat is. It is truly a work of art. Upon receiving this hat I realized that I have never had, or ever seen, a real Panama hat. But you sure know it when you see it. As soon as I took it out of the box I could tell that THIS is what a Panama hat is supposed to be. It pleases my unique taste that the difference in appearance can be so subtle and yet so dramatic at the same time. I am sure I will enjoy it for years to come.

John V., Chesterfield, Virginia

The hat arrived safely and undamaged late yesterday, but I didn’t have a chance to pick it up until now. It’s wonderful, and fits perfectly. Gotta’ keep the lines open, in case Hollywood calls. Thank you for your good work!

Dan B., Albuquerque, New Mexico

The hat arrived. It’s a beauty! I don’t know whether to wear it or display it as a piece of sculpture! I can’t wait for some warm weather. It arrived in the middle of another snowstorm.

Tim M., Madison, New Jersey

Brent, just a note to say thanks for the beautiful hat you selected for my dad. You were right, quality is what you are about. My dad wears it every chance he gets. Thanks again. Enclosed is a picture just after he put it on at Father’s Day breakfast.

Ray R., Oxnard, California

What a beautiful hat! It exceeded my expectations. The proportions are perfect and I do not remember having ever tried on a hat that I liked so much. The quality is immediately obvious. It fits comfortably and if I may say so myself I think it looks great on me. Thank you!

Rafael V., Del Mar, California

The hat arrived today—it is a keeper! Thanks for putting it together for me, it truly is an outstanding piece of work. I am delighted, but if my wife ever found out how much it cost, she’d have a fit ;-).

Name withheld for obvious reasons, Somewhere in Indiana

Just got the hat and it is beautiful. Thanks so much. I am now awaiting movie contracts!!

Lem N., Tucson, Arizonia

Brent—I got my hat last Friday, and it looks great…I like the color, weave and blocking. I appreciate your quick service and all of the information on your web page. Many thanks.

Terry M., Kirkland, Washington

I just received the hat. It fits perfectly and really looks great. In fact, that’s the one thing that surprised me the most, not that the hat looks good, but that it looks good on me. Anyway, thanks so much. You do really fine work.

Eric S., Washington, D.C.

I got my hat today, and it is exactly what I wanted. I’ve gotten nothing but compliments with it—I might have to wear it all the time!!

Tom V., Atlanta, Georgia

I just received my two Panama hats! They are beautiful and fit perfectly!

Norm G., Denver, Colorado

Yes, it arrived today in perfect shape! What a beautiful work of art—one I will cherish for a long time.

Larry J., Selah, Washington

In the midst of the second snow storm in as many weeks, I came home from work early today to avoid driving in what was sure to be a traffic nightmare at rush hour. On my porch I found a large box from you. The hat has arrived, it fits perfectly, and I am very pleased. Thank you. Now I just have to wait for some warm sunny weather!

Charles K., Falls Church, Virginia

VALUE

[David wanted the hat to wear to the races, so I asked: “Did you have the winner?”]

Did I ever! Jazil—what a beautiful horse…and it was a great race, really…Jazil had a slow start and was dead halfway thru…But he came from nowhere around the last turn and powered ahead in a really thrilling finish…well—it was a lot more thrilling when you have the winner!

So I can safely say that so far—The Hat is LUCKY!!

I’ll send you a picture of me next week…

David D., Del Mar, California

Great hat…wore it to the Travers Stakes at Saratoga.

My Cuenca arrived today. I love it. I can’t believe how fine the weave is.

Doreen, the barmaid at the B-Boat, commented on it.

George M., Clearwater, Florida

Just wanted to drop you a note to say thanks for the wonderful Classic Fedora which was waiting for me when I returned from vacation yesterday. It’s fantastic, much more than I would have expected at the price based on my experience at retailers. Everything is perfect—fit, color, weave, width, height. I look forward to many years of wearing it and to purchasing additional hats from you in the future.

Thanks again and a pleasure doing business with you.

Gary K., Laguna Niguel, California

The hat arrived and I have two comments:

1. I wish I were as fine a person as your hat is a hat.

2. My wife observed that people won’t laugh when I put it on, and for her it doesn’t get any better than that—10 out of 10.

Thanks and good luck on behalf of Montecristi.

Steve B., Rockville Center, New York

Just wanted to drop you a note to say thanks for the wonderful Classic Fedora which was waiting for me when I returned from vacation yesterday. It’s fantastic, much more than I would have expected at the $825 price point based on my experience at retailers. Everything is perfect—fit, color, weave, width, height. I look forward to many years of wearing it and to purchasing additional hats from you in the future.

Gary K., Laguna Nigel, California

Just a quick note to let you know the hat arrived today. Thanks for sending it 2 day air. It’s nicer than I expected or even had hoped. The weave is so fine that one could mistake it for linen, perhaps. I’ve tried to do a weave count but very difficult without magnification. I would estimate it to be close to 700 though! You must have selected a body that was 1-2 grades higher than I had paid for. Straight weave and uniform color too. Fits great.

Hunter K., Raleigh, North Carolina

STYLE

The hat arrived today. I love it! Fit is good. Style is perfect for me. Thanks again.

Jack B., Sarasota, Florida

I just received the hat. It fits perfectly and really looks great. In fact, that’s the one thing that surprised me the most, not that the hat looks good, but that it looks good on me. Anyway, thanks so much. You do really fine work.

Eric. S., Washington, D.C.

Unbelievable! Got my hat today and wore it around. People stopped me on the street in droves to say what a great looking hat! Unfortunately not too many people today know who Greenstreet or Charlie are. Thanks for the great hat.

John T., Galveston, Texas

The hats are spectacular, and arrived without problem. I wore my fedora yesterday to court—someone has to be dashing.

I will watch for the Robb Report and National Geographic. For old times sake, hope there will also be some photos of topless Aboriginal women as well.

Dan W., Downey, California

I haven’t had a chance to call so I’m sending a quick email. I received my Montecristi this past week and it is perfect. This has to be the best hat that I have ever owned. The weave, color, and block are fantastic. It has the right proportions also! Thank you for the excellent work and the quick service! It’s the perfect hat!

Harry S., Baltimore, Maryland

1st: Rec’d hat, looks “GREAT”, very light weight…did not expect…thanks for talking to me last week…

2nd: Wearing my new hat on the Queen Mary this Sat for a week cruise, will be styling, will tell where I got it, hope you get some fine new business,

3rd: The ship doctor on my cruise had one of your hats from about 16 years ago. He does not wear it now but has it mounted. It was a beautiful trip and I did have the best hat! Too many baseball caps, no style…

Larry M., Reddick, Florida

Add me to the long list of satisfied customers. I just purchased my second Fino; my first was a Fedora C-crown, this one an Optimo. I am hopelessly hooked on them; NOTHING compares in fit and feel.

Keep making them and I will keep buying them.

Your retirement provider,

David S., Pinole, California

Great hat.

Bret M., Noblesville, Indiana

My Montecristi Aficionado arrived today in perfect condition. My 2 year-old promptly pronounced, “Good hat, Daddy”, so it shall be known henceforth as Good Hat. I am very pleased, thank you for the fine craftsmanship. My wife, on the other hand, is very jealous, and I shall therefore be momentarily placing an order with you online for a hat for her, so that I might keep Good Hat all to myself (at least until my son is older).

John P., Folsom, California

My Montecristi Plantation arrived in Knoxville last week, thanks! Perfect fit, just enough brim. :-)…and it’s already logged several miles across campus at the University of Tennessee where I teach. Didn’t count stitches per square inch yet. My only other straw hat is really embarrassed in its presence.

Eric S., Knoxville, Tennessee

My plantation hat arrived Saturday. Single word—WOW!!! It is so beautiful, I was afraid to put it on and wear it! It makes me feel like Clark Gable! (Heaven knows I’d need more then a hat to look like him.) The pictures and all the words on your website just cannot show or explain the exquisite yet simple elegance of this hat. It’s really just indescribable. Thank you for your time and patience.

Alan J. Morgan, Liverpool, New York

Just wanted to drop you a short line to thank you for the unexpected early delivery of my hat. It is beautiful, even nicer than I expected. The fit is perfect. I wouldn’t be surprised that after a spring and summer enjoying my fedora that I will be back in touch for a second style, maybe an Afficionado. (You see I am already thinking about which style I would like).

Ken L., Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Hat #1: I showed the guys my new Fedora Sunday. They were in awe. Seeing is believing.

Hat #2: I got the Optimo today. What can I say? It looks, in my opinion, better on me than the fedora. It is my newest favorite hat. Roll up? How could I ever roll this up? You pegged me right. I do appreciate fine craftsmanship and I’d like to keep it looking the way it looks now. Can’t imagine rolling it up and that was why I got it in the first place. How things change.

James P., Vista, California

FIT

This is unquestionably the coolest hat ever in the history of the universe. And the biggest miracle of all: It fits PERFECTLY! Thank you so much for all the trouble you took getting the correct size and shape; I enjoyed our correspondence almost as much as I can tell I’m going to enjoy my hat. THANK YOU!

Lee B., Detroit, Michigan

Got the hat today. It looks great and fits great.

Rick M., Austin, Texas

The Classic Fedora arrived in fine shape yesterday, right on schedule! Many thanks for that! The fit: Perfect. Crown Height: Perfect. Brim Width: Perfect. The minor weave imperfections that you noted in your letter are, in my (Montecristi Untrained) eye, of little concern. I do intend on wearing it on our trip (as it also met with Mary’s approval, and, as age will teach the wise man, the Lady is Always Right!) and, as I tend to become quite attached to both companions and accouterments which accompany me on adventures, I intend to keep it and make it my own. Many thanks for the consults, the magnificent product and the exemplary way you choose to conduct business.

Mike R., Rising Fawn, Georgia

Thank you very much. The hat has arrived!

It is beautiful and fits my husband perfectly.

We are very impressed with the colour and quality of the hat.

Thank you once again.

Frances W., Tasmania

[Head size: 64 cm or 2538 inches]

Received the hat today. You are really prompt! The box arrived in perfect condition and the hat inside was even lovelier than expected. It is lighter than the feathers on the family pet (Poncho Villa, the macaw) and fits without that dreaded headache ensuing. I will surely be the envy of all women who see it! My husband wants to order a hat from you now, but must wait until we have time. We will be gone most of the month of February with a trip to Washington State as well. When we return, we will email pictures of your hat in action. My husband’s hobby is photography and he often resembles a pack animal on trips with all of his camera stuff.

Thanks for your prompt delivery of a wonderful looking and feeling hat!

Sonja M., Houston, Texas

Received the hat. It is beautiful & unique. It also fits well. Thanks.

Scott P., St. Charles, Illinois

Thanks so much Brent. We got the hat and my friend just loves it!!!! It fits perfectly. Personally, I think he wears it a little high, but that’s the way he likes it, and that may have been what loused up my first measuring. Anyway, he looks fabulously handsome in it. Thanks again for your patience and for your beautiful work.

Kim K., Minneapolis, Minnesota

IT FITS, IT FITS, IT FITS!!!!

My husband loves it.

Thank you so much,

Jackie H., Brooklyn, New York

I just wanted to let you know we received the new hat and it fits beautifully. Vince was hesitant to wear it at first as the quality is exceptional, and it’s 113 degrees here now, but I convinced him to wear it and enjoy it. Thank you very, very much for making it right.

Sharon A., Scottsdale, Arizona

My hat arrived today and I could not be more pleased! It is terrific and fits perfectly. Spring has finally arrived, as it is 85 degrees and blue skies…perfect weather for donning a new hat. Thanks again!

Michael L., Jacksonville, Florida

Just picked up my new hat at the Post Office. It’s PERFECT!!! The weave is artwork—just exquisite! A side note on the trial and error of the hat band process, I have to say that it could only be improved upon by trying on completed hats. My hat fits and feels exactly like the last hat band. Well worth the effort we spent.

Steve C., Kenilworth, Illinois

I received my hat in excellent condition. The condition was certainly exceeded by the quality—many thanks!

I am preparing a longer epistle, but in the meanwhile wanted to let you know of my hat’s arrival. I’m not going to say the hat fits like anything—it just fits perfectly.

Henry B., Montegut, Louisiana

Forgot to tell you I got the hat…thanks for all the effort. Fits great.

Warren C., Marietta, Georgia

It’s taken me a while to get around to it but I wanted to let you know I got my hat and I like it a lot. I think the fit is just right although I haven’t had a chance to wear for a long period of time. (It’s getting cooler here.) I’m looking forward to getting much use out of it when I come to your fair state (Kauai) on my honeymoon in January. Thanks for the help with the selection.

Wade M., Atlanta, Georgia

I received my hat, an Aficionado. It is beautifully done and it fits absolutely perfect. Thank you very much and I will look forward to our next endeavor.

Samuel W., San Francisco, California

I just wanted to thank you for the hat…by far, it is the largest Panama I have seen (818), and it fit like a glove right from the box. The first day I wore it to lunch, at least 3 people stopped to comment. Since then, I have worn in as often as possible, and it seems to always elicit positive comments, whether in Yosemite, Monterey, or just the local supermarket .

The hat is so light I often forget that I am wearing it, despite its overall size. The brim of the Aficionado style offers great sun protection (just like the Doctor ordered), and everyone who insists on touching the hat are amazed at the suppleness of the weave and the artistry required to make the completed hat.

I would recommend you to anyone, especially those of us that have been “hard to fit.” In a world of “one size fits most” and mass produced products, you and the artisans of Montecristi are to be applauded for the quality of your product, the service you provide, and all of your efforts to keep real hat making alive.

Charlie M., Newark, California

The Fedora fit a little snug at first, but this morning I cut my hair and the fit is just right & is a great hat to wear when I’m playing jazz. Thanks again.

Pete D., Littleton, Colorado

I received my hat last month and I love it. Thank you for the Quality Upgrade. It fits perfectly, thanks to the hat size tape. I should not have waited so long. Thanks again.

Dan C., Grover Beach, California

He loves the hat! It is really beautiful. Your stitching is very fine, I like everything about it. I like the brown ribbon. Thank you very much. One of these days I will order a hat for me!

Karen H., Athens, Georgia

Hi Brent—I received my second hat last week—the 718th long oval fits perfectly and what a beauty! I love it. Thanks very much!

Russell E., Pacific Palisades, California

My hat arrived today in Tucson. All is perfect, especially the band…EXACTLY the best grey-green I could have imagined.

I appreciate the “care and feeding” instructions. This is my first Montecristi. I will give it a good home.

Thank you for your attentions and your time.

If you and your family are ever in Tucson, please drop by and stay a while…I have a guest house, a big outdoor dining room table and a passion for grilling on an open fire.

Mi Casa, Su Casa.

Sr. Brad, Tucson, Arizona

I have received the hat and could not be more pleased!

Thomas M., San Francisco, California

My Optimo arrived early this evening. It looks absolutely great! And, it’s unbelievably light and comfortable. Perfect fit and looks good on me. I should cut a very dashing figure (think Sydney Greenstreet). And, it will get a lot of use: the sun should be intense and I’ll be out in it for several days. Who knows—I may get rediscovered in Provence.

I won’t try folding it until the 24th, when I leave for Greece, Israel, Provence, and Barcelona. I’ll follow the directions carefully.

It was very enjoyable doing business with you, and you can be sure I’ll recommend you to others.

Ross A., Belmont, California

I just got my hat yesterday and it’s a beauty. The quality of the hat is amazing and it looks very classy. I didn’t want to take it off. When I woke up this morning I put it right on. I can’t wait to show it off to all of my friends. I wouldn’t buy a hat from anyone but you. Thank you very much for such a beautiful hat. I will wear it everyday and let everyone know who it’s from.

Anthony M., Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

It arrived this morning! I had been thinking about it on the way to the office and how hard it was going to be to wait until the end of the week—it was practically waiting for me. What a wonderful surprise. Thank you so much for the speedy work and delivery. I think it’s beautiful. I expect Jeff to feel the same. If for some reason he prefers the Classic over the Optimo, we will ship it back Monday, carefully packed in its original packing. But I have a feeling he won’t be able to give it up. I see him wearing it Sunday. My children are going to be thrilled with the fabulous gift for Daddy, too.

Veronica G., Chicago, Illinois

I have been on vacation since receiving my hat so I have not been able to wear the hat much but am back to work and wearing it daily. I wanted to make sure I sent you this message to tell you thank you for the hat! It looks great and it fits like it was made for me (ha ha). It fits perfectly.

Thanks for the extra work it took to shape a new hat for me. I greatly appreciate it. Also, I wanted to let you know that the CoolMax sweatband is extremely comfortable. I have a winter wool felt fedora and a Shantug straw hat that both have a leather band in them. Although leather is supposed to be considered high quality, I don’t think there is any comparison to the comfort of the leather bands to this CoolMax band. It really makes the hat feel light on my head and as the name implies is very cool on my forehead.

Steve I., Tuttle, Oklahoma

Came home for lunch and there was your surprise. Had to read all your enclosed literature prior to the big moment. My hat fits perfectly although the only movie star it makes me look like is Peter Lorre. Many thanks for your great service and devotion to duty. I greatly look forward to being the coolest, if not the best looking, fisherman in WY and FL. I will wear it with pride and coyly suggest to all who ask that the BBB brand is the only way to go.

Kit D., Tallahassee, Florida

The hats just arrived and I am ecstatic. The fit is perfecto! I love everything about mine, the color, the block, the band, the brim, etc. I truly feel that I got everything I expected. I’m sure the Mrs. will feel the same way. Thanks for everything Brent!

Wade F., Jackson Heights, New York

And a fine day ’tis! I just received the fine Cuenca Fedora. Let me say simply that I love it.

Man, I’ve never had such a light weight good looking hat. My father would be impressed. He always wore those fur bonnets (like Stetsons) that were heavy and hot.

I’m wearing it now, have the brim turned down and it looks great too. Also, thanks for your letter detailing responses to my inquiry.

I was concerned that you might have sold out in my size; which, by the way, fits perfectly. No chance of you getting it returned. Although, I may later order an Aficionado simply because I have an inborn lust and craving for unique quality. And, I do like that particular style too.

You are invited to drop in for a cappuccino when you’re in the area visiting your sister.

Thank you for the prompt shipment and response.

Rawley Y., Seattle, Washington

My hat arrived yesterday and what a fine hat it is! It fits like a glove (well, you know what I mean…) and I am very happy with it. Many thanks for the prompt service and totally smooth transaction, from sending me the tape measure to the delivery of the hat. Online ordering as it should be, not to mention the superb quality of the goods.

Silke B., Tokyo, Japan

Splendid hat! Thank you so much!

I’m so enthusiastic about the hat, I’m already thinking of my next order.

I’m one happy customer.

Brian C., Los Angeles, California

I have had my Optimo for several months now. What a great hat! When it first arrived, I wanted to admire it from afar. I was almost afraid to wear the thing for fear that I would damage it somehow. The sunny weather has encouraged me to wear it more. I have come to realize, the best position to admire this hat is from underneath. What a work of art.

Don H., Fresno, California

I got my hat today. The hat fits perfectly, can you believe that? It’s a really sweet hat and I love it too much. Thanks again for all your help. Hopefully I can help you sell some in the future. Maybe, someday we might cross paths.

Dave W., Tucson, Arizona

I just opened the box and put on the hat. I haven’t even gotten to a mirror yet, but this is a delight. It’s almost like it’s not there—just as all summer clothing should be but are not. It may be a hair—and I do mean a hair—loose, or just sooooo comfortable. Or it may be that my other hats are a hair tight. I have no plans other than to wear it as I am doing as I write this from my office. I doubt anyone will complain as I intend to keep it on all day. Boy, is this nice. Now to look at it. (Frankly, I don’t even care how it looks on, it’s so comfortable.)

Charles B., New York, New York

The hat is a perfect fit and the crown is just under a half inch from the top of my head. I appreciate the work you have done. Thanks for everything.

Steve F., Vista, California

I received my hat last month and I love it. It fits perfectly, thanks to the hat size tape. I should not have waited so long. Thanks again.

Dan C., Aroyo Grande, California

SERVICE

You are a rare find in this age of ‘it’ll do’-ism. Thanks for your commitment to excellence and fine craftsmanship.

James P., Vista, California

Received the hats yesterday in fine order! They fit fine and look great!

Thanks for the help on the roll-up. It is not very often in today’s world that a merchant extends gratitude to a first time customer. Noted! Hope you are enjoying yourself. Hope you have a good Mardi Gras celebration! Good doing business with ya!

Keith T., Leonardtown, Maryland

The hats arrived late yesterday afternoon and look GREAT!

Thank you again for working with me on both hats and for trusting me by sending two hats for me to try on. I’m certain that I will be purchasing Panama Hats from you again in the future.

Stay cool baby!

Until next time, “Tight Lines”!

Sammy Lee, Birmingham, Alabama

[Host of syndicated radio fishing show “Tight Lines”]

I have been meaning to let you know that the hat that was damaged and repaired to fit my wife, turned out great. She loved it. The hat that you replaced for [me] is very nice. I just wanted to let you know you have been very fair and generous and I look forward to doing business with you in the future.

Steve L., Rapid City, South Dakota

Got my hat and am pleased with it. You found yourself a new customer. Chicago says “go guy.”

Marilyn P., Chicago, Illinois

It’s official. Now that’s a hat! As my original suspicions and research indicated that your attention to quality and detail were the best I could possibly find, I now offer my highest accolades for a job very well done. I am very pleased with the Panama “Keeneland” model as it indeed represents a fun, stylish, and fine work of art. Thanks a million Brent!

Bill G., Palm Desert, California

I received the hat yesterday, added my special touch to the front of the brim, and wore it today. It fits perfectly and looks great! I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of workmanship and how light it feels to the touch and on my head.

Thanks again for the hat and I would like to keep in touch with you, not just because I will probably need you to re-block my hat. I find you interesting to talk with and respect what you are doing: living your dream while helping people who desperately need help. I will look for your picture on the next cover of Patek Phillipe magazine.

Bill C., Alpharetta, Georgia

Thank you so much…the hat is wonderful, and my wife says it it perfect…the fit is just right too. Wanted to let you know it arrived in great shape!

Looking forward to mine…

2nd hat is also perfect Brent! I have never looked good in a Panama hat before…my wife now says I look great!

Thanks again…expect recommendations…

Peter L., Los Angeles, California

My Optimo arrived on Thursday! I’ve been trying to figure out how to express the “wow” factor…to no avail. So I’ll simply say “wow!” I do believe this hat is going to make a lot of friends in this area this summer.

Willie J., Niagara Falls, New York

Brent: I received the hat in perfect condition. My wife is now admiring the hat and looking at women’s styles for herself. Thanks for picking out a beautiful hat that fits perfectly.

John G., Newport Beach, California

Aloha and Mahalo,

I just received my hat. It’s awesome. I love it!! The band is perfect—colorful yet subtle.

I’m sure this hat and I will become good friends, and if I ever have need of a more elegant one, I’ll give you a call.

Anita S., Sacramento, California

Got the hat today. Great fit. Great look. Perfect in every respect. Many thanks.

Bob V., Livermore, California

It is PERFECT! I can’t believe how soft and light it is on my perfectly fitted head. Really beautiful. Very happy. It has been a pleasure doing business with you. The fact that you would refund the first $500 for the last hat because of a problem I may have been the one creating really told me a lot about you and how you do business. I am very happy to be a client and have told a lot of friends about you and how you work. I don’t know if they are going to buy a hat but at least they have a web site and phone number.

Alan S., Coral Springs, Florida

The Montecristi Plantation you fashioned for me is a knockout! Even more elegant than I expected. It arrived in excellent condition yesterday and I attribute that to the careful packaging and handling you give to your fine products. I have modeled it in my home to rave reviews and cannot wait to show it off in public. However it is so great looking I am reluctant to expose it to the elements and friends, who will insist on trying it on and handling it roughly. Oh well, I will display my treasure and it probably will propel me to the status of “celebrity” and who knows what fame and fortune may be in my future because of my new hat.

Bob K., Mission Viejo, California

I just want to express my appreciation for my second splendid hat from you. You continue to meet all expectations. I’m sure I’ll be back for more in due course. Thanks so much.

Brian C., Los Angeles, California

The hat arrived toady! It came in great shape, and looks fantastic. Thanks for all your considerate service. I will recommend you to anyone who is interested in a Panama hat.

Dave K., Bay Village, Ohio

I received my beautiful Montecristi Optimo this afternoon. It arrived in perfect condition and fits just right. Thank you for your wonderful service.

Gary F., Fresno, California

Brent, I got the hat today. It looks great. I didn’t realize how light it would be. I can hardly tell I have it on. The ribbon is a darker gray than the boat, but I really like it. Thanks for all you did to get the hat to me for my vacation.

Eddie M., Houston, Texas

[He was piloting his boat down the Mexican coast and “needed” a gray ribbon that would match the color of his boat. Found one in my Vintage Ribbon Collection.]

I can’t thank you enough for the replacement Fedora. I was able to wear it to my daughter’s 8th grade graduation last night. I had the best looking head in the joint. I am so very impressed with your service and commitment to customer satisfaction even on a close out item that is sold as is with a no return policy. You have a customer and referrer for life. I will be back to purchase again.

Alan C., Oakhurst, New Jersey

I’m the lucky guy that received the hat. It is a beautiful hat, and I have fallen completely in love with it! A security guard at the Essex House in NY tried desperately to buy it from me on Thursday, but to no avail! This is one beautiful hat, and I thank you for the extra effort you put forth to get it to me for Fathers Day (it did make it on time, by the way).

Randy H., Norwalk, Connecticut

TRAVEL

I just got the hat today and read the helpful info you sent with it.

It’s a beautiful hat!!! Can’t wait to wear it! But I’m just too timid to follow the instructions you sent on folding it—I would hate to mess it up. I guess I won’t try it until I fly somewhere for vacation. Beautiful travel tube, though. Thanks again!

John A., San Antonio, Texas

I have been meaning to write to let you know the hat arrived on time—the USPS is far better than I had given them credit for. The hat is great and I’m wearing it on my holiday here in Thailand.

Pete K., Bangkok, Thailand, and Hong Kong

Hi Brent....hat arrived....perfect fit....the hat is excellent…seems a shame to ever roll it…and i probably never will…

George C., Chicago, Illinois

The hat arrived in fine form in time for my trip. It fits great; we must be about the same size. My Dad came by the office and he loved it so you’ll probably get another order soon.

Aloha, and Mahalo to you for getting the Roll-up Optimo to my hotel in Kauai in time for the beginning of my vacation. The hat arrived in perfect condition, fit well and provided the look and sun protection that I was hoping for on the unfortunately rare sunny days that I encountered in Kauai as well as on Maui. It was my first visit to Kauai, and my wife and I were totally impressed by the lack of development and unspoiled beauty of the island. Also, while in Maui at the Grand Wailea I was pleasantly surprised to see your hats being sold in one of the finer shops at the hotel which made me feel even better about my choice to purchase from you. Mahalo!

Jim G., Herndon, Virginia

I received my Montecristi roll-up today. I love it! It will come in handy while in Venice. Thanks for handling my order so promptly and expeditiously!

Gary W., Bel Aire, Maryland

Wore my hat in scorching heat in Israel and southern Italy for a month. It was perfect.

Charles B., New York, New York

I received my hat on Saturday and all I can say is, WOW! You did a great job. The hat fits like a glove and, quite frankly, I’m not sure I want to fold it! :-)

I thank you again for all your help with my decision. I can honestly say that I picked the right person for the job. You will be my first choice if I ever decide to get a second hat. Some of my friends have been inquiring and I’ve already let them know that you are THE MAN!

I will send you some pictures as soon as I return from my trip. Me, a Monte#2, a mojito and my Brent Black special…it will be a great time in Cuba, indeed.

BLOCKING

The mail delivered my Plantation a short while ago. Thank you for the great job you did for me in repairing and rejuvenating it. The discount is a nice reward and is my gold star for neatness and is much appreciated.

Also it’s a great PR tool for you. Your promptness in a busy season is appreciated, so now I can show off for the rest of the summer with my two (2) fabulous BBBs. By the way, is it acceptable to wear straws in the winter season in Southern California or would that be unfashionable?

Your BBB logo pin…is now solidly affixed to the Fedora ribbon and has turned a nice straw into an elegant show-off piece of wearable art. I’m enjoying, this summer, both the rejuvenated Plantation and its little brother, the Fedora.

Bob K., Mission Viejo, California

All I can say is WOW!!

What a remarkable transformation. Now, this is more like it. I am, indeed, a fedora type of guy. Once again you have done wonders. If I hadn’t seen it with my own eyes, I would never have believed that you could make an optimo into such a great looking fedora.

Gary S., Morrisson, Colorado

Received my second hat yesterday. You are a master of hats.

What could you possibly have done to revive this poor old thing to such a state of beauty and comfort? A pact with the devil?

[I’m now a] man with too many hats and coveting more. I now empathize with Imelda Marcos’ shoe fetish!

Thom U., San Diego, California

Thank you for accommodating me and doing a great job with my hat. It was a retirement present from some very well meaning and fine friends who just didn’t know to talk to you first. I’ve never found it to be much fun to be asked to fix or improve something not properly done in the first place, but by doing so, you’ve given me a hat that is now very useful, a perfect fit, and one that I can wear with pride and confidence.

I will be calling about another hat in 2006, and my wife and I are planning a visit to the islands probably sometime in May. If we get the opportunity I’d love to buy you a beer!

Ray L., San Jose, California

The new hat is WONDERFUL (as opposed to its “obstreperous” cousin). The blocking is beautiful. It fits perfectly and lays pleasingly on my head. The flapping wings reminiscent of the “flying nun” look are gone, thanks to the long oval blocking you accomplished with such skill.

I LOVE it. I will wear it with pride and as a living and visible demonstration of your skill. Your patience with me in dealing with the difficulties I experienced with the first hat as well as your persistence on solving the problem and insisting on a finished product that is now perfect in every way, speaks volumes about your commitment to your craft and your clients.

I hope that you have many more years of health and joy in doing what you love with these remarkable treasures.

Alan P., Falls Church, Virginia

Hi Brent—you are a GENIUS! My wife doesn’t even believe it is the same hat. It is beautiful!!!! Thank you soooooooo much. You are a true genius in blocking and a master in creative styles. I am just so happy with the beautiful style you created with that mess of woven straw I was stuck with. I am sorry it was such a pain. Thanks again and again.

Dave S., Emmaus, Pennsylvania

The hat arrived this afternoon and I refuse to take it from my head. It is just great. Naturally, I will avoid using it for golf and will search for a plastic cover in the event rain should strike. Thank you for your expertise…and the resurrection!

John F., Toms River, New Jersey

I have received my hat, it really looks great! Again thanks for your time and your skilled attention in blocking my hat.

Frank C., Bordentown, New Jersey

WOMEN’S HATS

Your gorgeous UltraWide arrived safe and sound today…and it fits perfectly! And NEVER anything but that huge brim for me! I leave the smaller brims for others. The big joke at the car shows is that I am so small, and wear such huge hats, that a big wind will pick me up and blow me across the park. At my age, instead of a movie contract, I am liable to be mistaken for a Hot Air Balloon!

Your letter was delightful and a true treat. I can certainly see that you enjoy what you do…and I count myself lucky the day I strolled into the Grand Wailea and found your hats at the Sandal Tree. I couldn’t BELIEVE my eyes to find THE perfect hat with that HUGE brim! And now I have one that fits properly…imagine that!

Thanks for that lightening-fast shipment, and keeping me informed of that status of the hat along the way.

It has been a true pleasure! Mahalo!

Deb B., Sparks, Nevada

Line Stensby B. in Wide Brim Garden Hat

I received your hat about a month ago, and I simply love it! Now that summer finally has begun, I wear it all the time. I therefore decided to send you a picture of me wearing the hat in my garden.

Line Stensby B. Norway

My Montecristi Afcionado arrived today in perfect condition. My 2 year-old promptly pronounced, “Good hat, Daddy”, so it shall be known henceforth as Good Hat. I am very pleased, thank you for the fine craftsmanship. My wife, on the other hand, is very jealous, and I shall therefore be momentarily placing an order with you online for a hat for her, so that I might keep Good Hat all to myself (at least until my son is older).

Justin P., Folsom, California

Great news!! The hat fit and she loved it. Thanks again for all your assistance.

Jose L., Chicago, Illinois

I just got a call from Sally at home. She said, in one long breathless bubbly rush, “There was a box on the front step just now. It was my hat! It’s PERFECT!!! It fits perfectly!!! Brent, she was ecstatic. I have not heard her so joyous since she called from the hospital last September to say her granddaughter had been born.

Peder K., Seattle, Washington

GIFT HATS

My Montecristi Montego Bay arrived today. It looks and feels great! It will always be a special and unique birthday present from my wife, Susan. Just wanted to drop a note and let you know we are very satisfied.

Stan and Susan H., Powder Springs, Georgia

I am now the proud owner of the hat and it is indeed truly stunning.

Many, many thanks.

Paul M., London, England

We are back and refreshed from our honeymoon and the hat arrived and was completely beautiful. Thank you so much. It fits Paul perfectly and he looks very debonair. Thank you so much for all of your help in making our day so special.

Sarah M., London England

[She gave Paul the hat for their wedding]

I can’t believe I forgot to tell you that Mark’s custom-sized West Panama hat arrived and is truly beloved above all other hats. It is magnificent. It fits perfectly and is just beautiful. We are both very happy with it indeed.

Thank you so much for all your effort

Carlyn M., Huntington Beach, California

Thanks Brent, I did get a chance to look at the hat, and it’s beautiful. I’m sure my dad will enjoy it.

Ben H., Palo Alto, California

I just wanted to say a big thank you for the hat you sent to my Dad for his birthday. He is absolutely thrilled to death with it, and it has certainly moved me a rung up the ladder toward favorite daughter status! The hat arrived yesterday, the day before his birthday, in perfect condition. Dad was even raving about the packaging and personal note that you included. He’s now going out to buy a hat box to keep his pride and joy in—he described it as a “beautiful hat” and was amazed at its lightness and quality. He asked me to email you immediately to thank you as he is unable to do so himself; their internet service is out of commission at the moment.

I am deeply grateful—you have made two people very happy!

I look forward to receiving the bamboo carrying tube, which will complete this perfect gift. I will be hand-delivering it to Dad [in England] in September when I see him.

Krista B., Coral Spring, Florida

I was enormously complimented by my friend who gave the last hat you sent as a gift to a client. He said that the new owner had never seen such a beautiful hat.

Thank you very much, and you know I’ll promote your hats as much as I can.

Eduardo A., Mexico City, Mexico

INTERNATIONAL ORDERS

I just received the hat (a 758 Roll-up Optimo) that David Berkbile of Georgetown Tobacco asked you to ship directly to my wife Vesti…in Saskatoon, Canada. It’s perfect. Thank you very much for all the trouble that you must have gone through to find this style in this size. Believe me I have some idea. You should see what I go through to find shoes that I like. This hat is a replacement for one that I bought while on holiday in D.C. (hence the Georgetown connection) which our dog, Charlie, whom Vesti convinced me to adopt from the pound, decided was yummy. That’s why she wanted to get this exact one. Charlie is still with us (you can’t blame him for being a dog) and, I’m glad to say, no longer eats hats or anything else apart form the innumerable squeaky toys we buy him. He does occasionally steal socks when he wants to play (he’s 100 pounds of black Lab, when he wants to play you must obey) but I think I can keep my hat safe. Anyway, thanks again. The hat’s perfect and Charlie’s one great sin has been expunged.

Cam M., Saskatoon, Canada

We picked up the hat in Hong Kong last week and I am happy to let you know that the hat fits her perfectly and she is very very happy with it. Thanks again.

Andy C., Hong Kong, China

I received my hat today; it fit perfectly and looks fabulous.

Hans M., Stockholm, Sweden

Hi, Just a belated thank you regarding the hat. It’s super. I much appreciate your efforts.

Bill M., West Midlands, United Kingdom

Well, I got my hat today, delivered straight to my door without any bureaucratic interventions at all. It is really beautiful. I tried to imagine how it would look and feel before it arrived, but my thoughts did not live up to reality. I love the smooth, soft and delicate feeling—the coloring is just right—the brim is wonderful…a truly lovely hat.

O. Guerrini, Santiago, Chile

I just received the new Optimo. I am excited. This is the most beautiful Optimo that I have ever seen! The weave is the finest, soft and smooth like fine linen.

M. Soutsu, Tokyo, Japan

Today arrive my hat!!! This has the suitable size. Thank you. The next Sunday night near the sea in Leukada island (Ioanian sea), a glass of wine and Zobra dance for you I wish you good summer.

P. Ioannis, Greece

We are back and refreshed from our honeymoon and the hat arrived and was completely beautiful—thank you so much. It fits Paul perfectly and he looks very debonair. Thank you so much for all of your help in making our day so special.

S. Moore, London, UK

WEB SITE

Wanted to say hello and congratulate you on the changes you made to your web site. Just fantastic, enjoyed the narrative as well as the pictures. Was good seeing those involved in the making of my hats. As I mentioned in a prior e-mail, I have been wearing my hats quite frequently and receive numerous compliments and inquiries. Hopefully you had an order from my home town, someone inquired about my “roll-up” and I referred them to your web site.

I look forward to the additions to the site and hope to see additional photos. You take care.

Michael M., F.E.M.A, Somewhere disastrous

The tour is very nice! Actually, I “took it” a few weeks ago, and again today. I always wondered why a sweaty hat smells vaguely sulfurous! Now I know. It really is great.

Gary S., Morrisson, Colorado

I was surfing the net for a summertime hat when I found your website.

Being that most of the hats I wear are baseball/fishing caps, or anything that will cover my bald spot, I never really considered a Panama hat.

I am glad I found your website. It is very informative and I found myself visiting the website several times because there is so much information to absorb. Nice job.

George F., Wilmington, Delaware

While searching on the web for a Panama Hat, I came upon your web site. While I, unfortunately, do not have the financial resources to purchase one of your hats, I could not continue my search without taking a moment to compliment you.

Your web site is most impressive and informative. The pride of your company and your product just drips from every page and tells a wonderful story. Your web site plays like a fine symphony and I got lost in the music for some time. I learned a great deal about hats and was enthralled with the dignity of your company. But it was the gratification you must feel and the resulting self-esteem from producing a top quality product that was most obvious. I must confess that I feel some envy for your ability to produce a product of uncompromised quality.

Regretfully, I am not a potential customer for you but I would dearly love to be one. I do not typically wear hats and was only searching for a hat for a brief trip to Jamaica. That said, if I were financially able, I would buy from you without hesitation with every confidence of complete satisfaction.

While I am sorry that I cannot provide you with a more profitable result from you efforts, I would be remiss if I did not take this moment to thank you for the experience.

John A., Olney, Maryland

I just got the book that you sent to me with ‘The Legendary Montecristi Panama Hat’ book.

All I can say is WOW. It really is a very nice write up on the whole process that is a wonderful keepsake for me.

The actual hat has only seen action around the house as of yet. The weather here has gone from very warm (hot) and humid to relative cool. It really is gorgeous.

Anyway, the book is great and I still hope to get some better pictures off to you soon. Thanks again!

Jerry J., Columbia, Maryland

Just to let you know—I took an hour or so to browse through your web pages.

You REALLY do a nice job on the pages.

Jim T., Honolulu, Hawaii

Nice article. The photography is excellent as well. I can only imagine how my back would feel after an hour of working like that. It certainly makes you appreciate the craftsmanship. If we have a layover in Oahu maybe we’ll get a chance to see your collection.

Wade M., Atlanta, Georgia

We are frequent visitors [always] admiring your hats. Congratulations on your truly excellent and informative web site, it has supplied a lot of information that I have often wondered about!

Ron S., Somewhere in cyberspace

Got the hat. Great hat! Thanks!

Excellent! I sent your website around to my friends.
