On 16 November 1906, President Theodore Roosevelt wore the typical soft straw hat with a black ribbon while visiting the Panama Canal. It was a hit in the world of elegance and the Panama hat immediately became the head covering for the very well-dressed. This original Panama hat comes from Ecuador, where only the best Panama hats in the world are still plaited by hand.
Protect yourself from the relentless summer sun with this classic, and don’t risk having to buy a coarse, hard straw hat when you get to your holiday destination! This genuine Panama hat is much softer and more elegant, and yet almost as reasonably priced. 100% straw.
