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)

    Brisa folder for my dad

    Posted by Robbie on 27th Sep 2023

    Beautiful hat, bought for my dad as a gift for him at my wedding in Tuscany and he loves it. You realise hats look good when you actually get a good hat! So I also got one myself, but the down trilby. Highly recommend and especially recommended a visit to the factory/shop in Luton where you'll get great help and see this amazing historic interesting place. Just check someone will be there or make an appt ?

    Brisa 3/5 Ivory.

    Posted by Andrew Wolstenholme on 12th Jul 2022

    The hat looks as advertised and fits well without the need for padding out the hat band. The padding oddments of foam wouldn't have sufficed if needed. The material weave is lightweight and easily distorted during normal handling which is dissapointing given the cost of the hat and my long time experience of using one other hat.

    This is an excellent product, beautifully made and finished. I also had benefit of additional information and advice from Mavi by phone which was exceptionally helpful and knowledgable. It's rare today to find such outstanding service.
