|Visiting Genoa, Italy|
I must say that the lightness of the hat and the beautiful craftsmanship took me by surprise when I first had the hat in my hands. I had chosen the Fedora shape as I find it very flattering even though the foldable model with the crease down the middle of the top would be more practical for journeys abroad.

I brought the hat abroad in May during a cruise in the Mediterranean Sea where it gave me shade from the sun and a certain panache. You make a spectacle when wearing Panama hat and a suit (and a bow tie) in many places, but I felt well received and recognized for my boldness.
