At GB Outfitters, we stock and supply a fantastic range of carefully selected Panama Hats, which we supply online. Although hats are no longer as popular as they were once upon a time, Panama Hats remain a great choice, and perhaps the only real true choice for a smart and comfortable summer hat.
These Panama Hats look great with gentleman's attire such as lightweight cottons, linen suits, deck shoes and chino shorts. A great and cool alternative to baseball caps and trilbies - these elegant Panama Hats not only provide great levels of style and comfort, but also plenty of protection from the sun.
A popular addition to the celebrity wardrobe, celebrities and well known figures who have worn panama hats include actors such as Benedict Cumberbatch, right across to political leaders including John F Kennedy and Winston Churchill.
Despite their name, Panama hats have never been made in Panama, and originate in Ecuador, the only place in the world that has such a long lasting weaving tradition. The construction workers whose strength was tested building the Panama canal used Ecuadorian Hats as protection from the harsh sun.
The Panama hat can be best described as a fedora style hat which has a dent in the top of the hat, the brim of the hat varies in width and the standard colour is a creamy straw colour. Above, you can find our complete range of panama hats, and if you have any questions about the range - please get in touch and we will be happy to provide any further information you require.
