Folder Panama Hat - Brisa 3/5: The most classic of all panamas, this Folder Panama (often referred to as Colonial) comes in a lightweight Brisa weave has a distinct crease in the centre, allowing it to roll with maximum ease and retain its shape, so is ideal for frequent travel. This is the most timeless style, being historically associated with likes of Theodore Roosevelt and Winston Churchill. Also available in Cuenca/ Herringbone weave and a finer Cuenca 8/10 weave.

Please note: Sizes 63/64/65 are available but these take approx 1 week to order and are not available on next day delivery. These are £25.00 more expensive due to the additional work the weavers are required to carry out to make these beautiful hats.

Supplied with folding instructions - Travelling tube NOT included.

Brim size (approx) = 6.5cm / 2½ in Crown height (approx) = 11cm / 4¼ in (sizes are larger for the larger size hats)

    Folder Panama

    My wife bought me this Folder Panama Hat as a Birthday Present and I am delighted with it. It is a good fit and because it is foldable, it is ideal for taking on holidays to sunny climes. I highly recommend this product.

    This is a follow up to my initial very positive review of the folder I bought a few months ago. Being very pleased with the appearance and fit I was anxious about folding it into its tube. As a previous reviewer said - it is an act of faith! However I need not have worried as the hat folded well for a recent trip to Sicily and emerged as good as ever after a little straightening and an overnight rest.

    Splendid hat and great service

    Posted by Edward Holt on 26th Feb 2017

    I wanted a folding panama for travelling and liked the Panama Hat Company's website. A couple of queries relating to size and weave were dealt with by a very pleasant and helpful lady and my splendid hat arrived a couple of days later. The fit and quality are first rate.
