Brent Black Classic...

Brent Black says beautiful hats don't fall off trees, and he's right. His fine Montecristi Panama hats start as jungle plants and require at least one hundred hours of skilled labor to produce the finished hat you enjoy on your head. Weaving straw so fine that it feels like smooth linen is a laborious and time-consuming process that only experienced artisans can do to satisfy the requirements of becoming a Brent Black Panama hat.

Once the master weavers of Montecristi have taken those months necessary to weave the straw into near fabric, the hat body (which is personally selected by Brent Black himself) is then shaped and hand-blocked, using steam and wooden blocks. Finished with a leather sweatband and grosgrain ribbon, the experience is turned over to the customer. One, who bought The Montecristi Classic, says in his five-star review that "while a high-end hat, is a lifetime hat. It is light, looks good, and wears like iron. Highly recommend this hat if you want a casual or dress hat for most climates."

Another satisfied customer also left a top-rated review, this one regarding his purchase of The Afficionado, calling it "another excellent hat" and saying: "Great design and look! Brent and [hat designer] Trent hit a homer with this one."

Time-consuming? Yes.

Finicky? Absolutely.

Worth it? You betcha.
