Shape: This adaptation of the classic Fedora has a slightly wider, teardrop shape crown. As a result the crown is slightly lower than our classic Fedora, making for a closer fit. It has a turned up brim at the rear, that comes down slightly at the front, making it perfect for those really looking to hide from the sun!
The Teardrop version of the Fedora can be rolled. However, the wider style makes it less suited for rolling than the standard Fedora or our Folder (which really is the best for rolling). This means that although it can be rolled, it will be quicker to "develop character" than the other styles and less likely to completely revert to its original shape. If this is not clear, please feel free to give us a call to discuss this in more detail.
Colour: Combining unbleached straw with a black band this colour combination does a great job of highlighting the natural, handmade qualities of this hat.
Weave: B&S Standard Weave. We have worked with our weavers to bring you this fine hat. Whilst not having the fine weaves used in our own signature range, our standard Panamas offer a great introduction to the world of Panamas. We do consider this hat to be roll-able, however if you are planning on rolling your hat on a regular basis, we would recommend investing in one of our finer weave B&S Signature panama hats.
