(Test) Different Styles and Shapes of Panama Hat

Style

Description

Fedora

The “Classic Panama”, with a mid-width brim and indented crown. Typically creased lengthwise down the crown and "pinched" near the front on both sides. The typical crown height is 11 cm.

The brim is usually approximately 6.4 cm wide.

Folder

Also known as the Colonial, Optimo or Natural. Has a single ridge along the centre of the crown which lends itself well to rolling up. Our most popular shape for regular travellers.

Dumont

Also known as the Planter or Gambler, it has a vintage, 1930s aesthetic. The brim, rather than flipping down, remains constant all the way around. Please note this style is not suited to rolling.

Teardrop Fedora

This adaptation of the classic Fedora has a slightly wider, teardrop shape crown, making the crown slightly lower than our classic Fedora, resulting in a closer fit. It has a turned up brim at the rear, that comes down slightly at the front. Please note this style is not ideal for rolling and will lose a little of its shape if rolled.

Trilby

A narrow-brimmed hat; which would normally be angled down at the front and turned up at the back. It also has a slightly shorter crown than our Fedora. Borges & Scortt Trilbies have a "flip brim", and so can be worn with the whole of the brim turned up, or with the front turned down. Please note this style is not suited to rolling.

Heart (Ladies)

An extra wide-brimmed sun hat with a scalloped indentation at the back of the brim to produce the heart-shape. Finished with a pretty ribbon bow. Please note it is not suited to rolling.

Wide-brim Sun Hat (Ladies)

An extra wide-brimmed sun hat with smooth lines. Can be finished with a black band and bow.
