Panama Hats

Panama Hats are hand-woven in Ecuador from the fine fibers of the Toquilla palm. They are imported from South America and finished for DelMonico Hatter in Italy or the United States. The Panama Hat comes in several styles - from the wide-brimmed Planter style, to the pinch-crown Retro and the open-crown Optimo Style. The Retro style features a medium to wide brim - it reminds you of the hats worn by men in the middle years of the last century.

Because of their lightness, Panama hats are worn in warm weather, while the wide brim provides sun protection. DelMonico Hatter features panama hats from Borsalino Hats of Italy, Stetson Hats, and our own distinctive DelMonico Hat.

It is said that the name "Panama Hat" was associated with this hat type because it was worn during the construction and dedication of the Panama Canal. To be considered a "Genuine Panama Hat", however, the item must be made in Ecuador. More Panama Hat History here.

DelMonico Hatter offers Panama hats in several grades, starting with the Stetson Retro Panama Straw Hat, then moving to the Retro Style Panama Straw Hat by DelMonico, the Stetson Centerdent Panama Straw Hat, the Borsalino Panama Hat and the Borsalino Quenco Fino Panama Hat. We also offer high-quality Montecristi Panama Hats from Borsalino and Pantropic.
