About Panama Hats for Men
The Panama Hat is a beautifully crafted style that has been time tested and cherished. A common misconception is that the Panama Hat comes from Panama. In truth however, true Panama Hats actually come from Ecuador and are woven from plaited strips of the Toquila Palm. Characteristics of the Panama are that they are lightweight, light in color, breathable and durable, though many variations exist. A main event that increased their popularity and a prominent reason why they are called the panama is the prevalence of the workers using these hats during construction of the Panama Canal.
When then president Theodore Roosevelt visited the construction of the canal he was photographed wearing this hat resulting in widespread exposure to this fine looking style. If your aim is to look sharp while keeping the sun off of your face then look no further because the selection of men's Panama's we have above will do both of those things admirably.
Our Panama hats are best suited to warm weather. They can keep the sun off your face and help you stay cool on those days when it feels like the heat is pounding down on your face. You can also wear Panama hats during other times of the year if you desire a more casual look. The informal and comfortable nature of Panama hats makes them a natural complement to casual clothing.
You may also choose to wear Panama-style hats with more formal outfits. They make an excellent final accessory for a formal occasion, such as a wedding. Men who live near the sea also love these hats because they can stay firmly on the wearer's head even if a breeze kicks up. If you desire a casual accessory that complements any style of outfit, the Panama hat is a fantastic solution.
Panama-style hats are known for their high quality and desirability. The best hats are woven so tightly, you can run water over them, and it will bead right off.
