Genuine Panama hats, made of finest straw, handwoven in Ecuador and handmade in Oxfordshire, not only supply casual summer elegance to the upper storey, they act as personal air-conditioning. The brim shades the eyes; the breeze cools the pate; the weave allows just the right amount of light.
The result: the perfect cooler climate that is simply not matched by inferior hats—and the new Down Brim Panama Trilby Hat with brim binding adds an extra air of style and nonchalance to any summer outfit.
Our hats are handmade by Christys’ & Co, the world’s oldest milliners (since 1773). The Down Brim has a classy grosgrain ribbon hatband, a matching brim binding and a rakish angle for a touch of extra style. It is such a stylish hat that it looks equally good on the girls.
The hats come in sizes from 55-62cm (6 3/4in to 7 5/8in) in either natural (creamy) or bleached, and with either black, navy or brown hatband and trim.
They have a 4.5in crown and 2.5in brim.
