Panama - The Genuine Article

Stay cool, comfortable and completely shielded from the sun all summer long in men’s straw Panama hats from Hats in the Belfry. With an unbeatable selection of Panama hats and straw fedoras, you won’t find many other men’s sun hats that are more stylish than these. We’ve got men’s straw hats for sale for every personality and style profile.

Before your big beach vacation or day at the derby, check out our Panama hats constructed using time-honored techniques from the Central American tradition of straw weaving. These hats are hand-woven in Ecuador by skilled craftspeople, and they are then hand-blocked in the U.S. for maximum durability and timeless style. The Panama straw fedora hat dates all the way back to the mid-1600s, when weavers in Ecuador began to create them and sell them in Panama. They really gained popularity in the mid-1800s when the miners of the California Gold Rush wore them, and when President Theodore Roosevelt visited the Panama Canal sporting a Panama hat.

For something with a slimmer, more modern look, the straw fedora is also a great choice. Hats in the Belfry’s selection of men’s Panama fedora hats are also made with natural straw bodies that provide exceptional UV protection, and many even feature classic hatbands and removable feathers for more refined flair. At Hats in the Belfry, we also offer dapper Panama straw gambler hats and safari hats to honor your particular vision.
