Plantation Panama Hat
Pencil Curled Edge
Brim - 3 1/2 - 4 1/2 inches
Crown - 4 inches tall
Plantation Panama Hat woven in Ecuador. We hand shape these hats right here in Berkeley, California with a nice pencil curl to give our hats a look you cannot achieve using the machine blocking that all the big hat manufacturers use on their brims. A rolled brim cannot be created in a press. We are the only people in this country that we know of that make a curled edge panama hat for less than a hundred and fifty dollars (if we're not, please let us know). The pencil curl or finger roll gives the hat more stability in the brim, not to mention a great look. This hat has good body and feel, not limp, but just right with no lacquer to make it hard. The Plantation shape is similar to the Mississippi Gambler shape made popular by Yancy Derringer but the brim is quite a bit wider with a much tighter roll. If you prefer the Gambler hat, you'll find a good one one on our panama hat page. If you prefer your hat brim shape a bit different than shown, just call and tell us what you want (best to ask for Ed, that's me) and we'll do our best to accommodate you-at no extra charge. Some like it more turned up western style & some like it flatter- I like it pretty much as shown. Comes with an elastic sweatband for size flexibility and black outer gros grain band.
