"Would like to have seen a photo of the completed hat."
That's what one commenter noted when we ran a story on Aug. 8: "He's Just Woven The World's Finest Panama Hat. But Who Will Buy It?"
Now, we did have a nice photo of the hat weaver himself, Simon Espinal, who lives in Pile, a village hidden in the hills of Ecuador's coastal lowlands.
And there is a close-up of the top portion of the hat, which gives a pretty good idea of what it looks like.
