    A well Planted Hat !

    This is my second Panama hat, but my first from this company. Firstly I have to say that the service / delivery was superb. Ordered late afternoon one day, and delivered before lunch the next. The quality of this hat is also superb. I love the rich cream colour of the weave and the chocolate band option that I chose complements the hat colour perfectly. I measured my head accurately again, before ordering,and as I have several other hats of different makes & identical size I was confident that this hat would fit perfectly. It does, but errs on the slightly large size. I have ordered foam pads to give it a more 'snug' fit but the oversize is so minimal that perhaps I am being obsessive. So - great service, wonderful hat , all I need now is a heatwave. I fear I may to wait for my next visit to Cuba for that though.....

    This is a lovely product at a very good price. I've been buying white panama hats for my husband over the years but this vanilla colour is going to be perfect as he quickly gets his hats dirty!
    Excellent fast delivery too.

    This Hat is absolutely FANTASTIC …

    Posted by Christopher LG on 18th Sep 2012

    I was looking for a genuine Panama with a bit of a twist on the usual style; this Hat is exactly what I was looking for. The colour is great and looks fantastic with the chocolate band and trim, it’s made really well and fits perfectly. My communication with the company was excellent, I dealt with Jenny and she was an absolute sweetheart, she helped me order the correct size and even had me measuring my head while she was on the phone to ensure I got the perfect fit ...great service and all with a big smile. I cannot recommend this company enough, thank you so very much.

    Panama Planter Great Hat

    Posted by Adam on 18th Jul 2012

    I am really pleased with this hat. It fits perfectly and looks great.
    I got the idea to have a Vanilla Planters hat from the vintage TV series MASH. I have all the seasons and all the episodes The character 'Trapper' is sometimes seen in a rather ragged Planters hat vanilla colour and a Hawaiian shirt.
    I like this look when I am playing my ukulele.

    The best Panama yet!!

    Posted by Paul Spellman on 13th Jul 2012

    Having bought a normal Panama hat a number of years ago, I was never really happy with it. I found the brim too floppy. However, this Panter style is outstanding. The brim is firm and the hat is an excellent shape to protect you from the sun. Having just come back from Rome, where it was 36, I can tell you it was a God send!
    A great item to buy and highly recommended!
