Montecristi – Part 1



Montecristi - Before Service
A couple years back, I picked up a really nice Montecristi hat.  It fit wonderfully and looked sharp.  Well, it used to look sharp.  From what I deem was a combination of not being properly blocked before it came into my possession, coupled with my having worn it while working a few outdoor cigar events in some humid and inclement weather, it is one Ecuadorian that has seen sharper days.  This wear and tear is pretty apparent in this picture – the crown is in decent shape, but the brim has lost all structure.
