The Montecristi Colonial Hat is also known as Optimo or in Ecuador as Natural because it did not have any blocked shape. The line mark in the middle was originated after rolling the hat for many times, know the line is part of the shapping process. This hat was used by the British Empire during their conquest in Asia. Still today, this model is very popular in the UK.
