This style seems to be one of the first Montecristi model.

The crest that cross the crown, probably became of the natural way that people roll up their hats. It is the only style that we recommend to roll.

The Optimo was sported in a sort of famous movies, like The last Emperor by Peter O'toole, or the Man Who Would be a King by Sean Connery.

As with the Fedoras, there are a few difference in estructures that could be the lower crown, or larger brim.This hat its most admired  in the UK, although is starting to become well known in United States as well. 

The Queality of A Montecristi is measure by the fineness of its weave and the rows in its crown,  varies greatly in quality according to the straw chosen, the expertise of the weaver and the time spent creating it.
