Our most popular style of panama is blocked in the classic Bates fedora profile – just like our Knightsbridge winter style. It features a low, square crown and full brim of 8-8.5cm to afford the wearer excellent sun shade.
Handwoven in Ecuador from toquilla palm straw, then blocked and trimmed for us in Spain, each piece takes around 20-25 days to weave, and is finished to grade 14-16.
As with all of our classic panamas, it is completed with a traditional black ribbon and a satin sweatband for greater comfort. This wardrobe staple is equally at home on the beach, veranda or at any summer sporting event.
