The Cheltenham Panama is named after our favorite event in the year - a day at the races! Often referred to as a Fedora Panama Hat , this stylish hat has a medium to wide brim and a soft Snap Brim at the back. This Panama is incredibly lightweight and is great protection on a hot day and is woven in a standard "Cuenca" herringbone weave. This hat is finished by hand in our Bedfordshire factory with a classic navy band.
Measurements: Brim: approx 7cm/ 3in. Crown: height approx 9cm/ 3.5in.
Material: Toquilla straw.
+ A great packing tip is to pack the crown tightly with soft items, and then place face down in between some clothes in your suitcase (make a 'well') and then pack some items flat over the brim to keep it from moving in your suitcase. If your hat mis shapes it can be lightly ironed in between a towel with some steam to reshape the brim (only).
This is a Genuine Panama Hat woven in Ecuador, and made by hand in our Bedfordshire factory using traditional hat making machines
Please note this hat is not foldable. This short brimmed panama is is a modern twist on the the classic trilby. It has a soft brown satin inner band and is customisable with a choice of different trims which will be hand sewn for you by our Hat Makers in our Bedfordshire Hat Factory.
