Trim and hammer

Yep - the next step in our article on how a Panama is made has been written!  Sorry for the slight gap between this and our last post.  It's been a busy time - summer seems to have started early and we've been busy getting all our lovely hats into the shops for you.

Colonial Style is back...

We agree with the Guardian - nostalgic and colonial style is back!  

Of course we do not condone much of the imperialistic behavior of the time, but we do love the classic simplicity of the fashion inspired by journeys into the hotter climes of India and beyond.  Blending practical functionality to cope with the heat with cleaner lines some truly classic looks were born during the period.  

Our Panama hats fit the look and style of this period and we have a great range that suit a variety of modern day adventures.  Be it a trip to the races with our heart shaped ladies hat; an afternoon at the cricket with our Dumont; or an overland adventure with our folder we have a Panama for any occasion!
