Folder Panama - Cuenca 3/5.

The most classic of all panamas, the Folder Panama (often referred to as Colonial) in a Cuenca/herringbone 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 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 £27.00 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. This can be ordered separately.

Available Colours: Ivory, Natural.

Measurements: Brim size (approx) = 6.5cm / 2½ in Crown height (approx) = 11cm / 4¼ in.

Material: Toquilla straw.

This is a Genuine Panama Hat

    Looks very good

    Posted by Unknown on 20th Dec 2016

    I haven't worn it yet but both the appearance and the quality look good. Not the cheapest available, but everything so far suggests good value for the money paid.

    Quick and helpful answer to my question about sizing. Very prompt delivery even though I only paid for the standard service. Small foam pads to improve fit work remarkably well. They didn't look as though they would be effective, but they are extremely good!

    I haven't tried to fold it yet, it seems to require a leap of faith. But it will be spending over 36 hours folded into a tube and packed in a suitcase in a few days time so that will be a good test.
    So far I am pleased that I bought my hat from the Panama Hat Co.

    Only had it a week...

    And worn it once.

    Time will tell if it retains its shape and does not discolour from sweat or light rain.

    A smart well made hat

    The hat arrived promptly, and was packaged well. It appears to be a quality product and looks good. It replaces a worn out "genuine panama hat" from M&S which I see was made in China!

    A very nicely made Panama Hat, vert please, very well packaged and great support from the Panama Hat Co. Recommended, so much nicer than buying from M&S or other copycat.

    Great hat. Great service

    I ordered a size too big. They charged it without demure and were charming into the bargain.. Will happily use them again
