Work In Progress

Our Panama hats are handwoven in Ecuador to our exacting standards for quality & style. Solid weaves are traditional, but we have developed ventilated crowns, some full and others not so (as shown here), but all ventilated weaves offer greater comfort in hot or humid climates.

Hey there sent you a facebook message about my hat on Monday, please check it out!
First , the good news. The salesman JD Noble is a delight. I purchased a $600 straw cowboy hat and having worn it just about 12 times there developed a crack at the top of the pinch. They replaced it the first time and reminded me not to use the pinch to remove the hat. I said of course, since I have owned may high quality hats including straw hats and have never have done that NOR have any other of my straw hats overhead that issue. Sone of my straws are over 10 years old with out this happening. Sadly, the second hat had the same issue in almost exactly the same amount of time, about 12 wearings. This time they made me feel it was my fault. As a business consultant when a product fails twice exactly the same way, it isn't the user it is the product. I also bought a hat at O'Farrell Hat Co. and would highly recommend them. They totally stand behind what they sell.
Milton and crew: Enjoying my Low Gus Tecate near Ridgway, CO. Thanks for a great hat!
