How To Measure For A Hat?
- First, Measure Your Head Circumference: To measure your head circumference, take a sewing measuring tape or even a string, and wrap around above the ears and across your eyebrows. Please stick your finger under the tape so there is a little room and there you have head circumference! If you fall between measurements go for the next size up. Record your measurement in centimeters, if possible for the most accuracy.

Worldwide, all Panama Hats are handwoven with Toquilla Straw Fiber in the city of Montecristi, located in Ecuador - South America.
Why is the difference in price? How is price determined? The difference of prices between Panama Hat depends on the fineness of the weave. The finer the weave the finer the hat. A straw hat finer and very well woven takes more time to manufacture. There are limited and therefore more expensive.
Our Panama Hats (straw hats) are qualified by grades 13, 14, 15, 16, etc. Grade 16 is finer than Grade 13 and therefore more expensive. Please choose the quality you want.
Note: Panama hats, should never be handled by the crown. Hats should always be handled by the brim only. Constant pinching or handling of its crown creates stains and, in the case of straw hats, will result in cracking after some time.

A fantastic quality planter and a really helpful owner who made sure all went smoothly. Highly recommended!
A gorgeous hat!
Beautifully woven, supple, glamorous. Fits perfectly. I couldn’t be happier with it. I so much wanted to replace one that I’d had for years. When I lived in Ecuador many years ago, I often saw them being woven. I will treasure it.
Summer must have...
Let me begin by saying I'm not a hat person, and avoid wearing them at all costs.... that is until I found this one. We've had ridiculously hot, humid weather this summer and we are fans of outdoor concerts at the beach. This hat has been a miracle since I've had it, and has worked out very well protecting my head and face from the baking sun. Love it.
These hats are great, the truth that it's worth doing the purchase
exactly as described quality is perfect and was shipped without a blemish
Comfortable and light, but excellent for keeping the sun's rays at bay (at least off your brow and out of your eyes). This is the panama hat that I've dreamed of owning, but could never find in the stores.
Great stylish hat
Great hat. Fits great, Perfect size and color. I wore it to the beach, pool and river and of course it got wet and never lost it shape, it did not get damaged or wrinkled. It even endured the trip in the suitcase without a dent. Happy with my purchase.
I love this hat, it is very according to my personality and fits perfectly to my face. Indicated to carry everywhere.
Stylish hat for both sun and casual wear
I have a fairly large head and this fits great. I really like the style it seems nicely made and the price is right. I love to throw on a stylish hat from time to time especially when. I like this one very much!
Great hat, great deal
The hat is great!! Very nicely made, and very good quality. It is perfect for summer sun when you want to look good. I love it!
I love this hat. First of all, I am not ordinarily a hat person, but this looks great and is flattering. It fits pretty snug, but it looks fabulous and keeps the sun off me. I get compliments wearing it out!
