The Brisa Preset Panama Hat is the ‘man in the middle’. Best of both worlds? That’s your decision, but you can be sure that it will be of the very best materials and fit.
The Club hatmaker is of course Christys’ & Co, the world’s oldest milliner, who still hand-make their hats in the traditional manner.
The quality of a Panama hat is determined by the fineness and evenness of its weave, and the strength and colour of the straw. Christys’ are superb, hand-made from the original Ecuadorian hoods. They also take longer to produce and prices usually reflect this. Through the Club, however, Members enjoy a real El Snippo.
The hats come in sizes 55-62cm in bleached (white) with classic black grosgrain ribbon hatband.
