Hats are like old friends.... The longer you have them, the more you appreciate them. The natural woven fibers on this Christys' of London hat allow air to circulate to keep you cool on hot tropical excursions, or ambling through your usual haunts. The interior crown tip liner is designed to protect your hat against cracking caused by normal wear. Hand woven by artisans in Ecuador, this hat is then blocked and trimmed in the USA. Enjoy your friends and a good hat, as both can serve you well.
