This Havana Panama hat has the classic C crown style, known also as a Fedora C crown or teardrop crown, and blocked in standard oval.

The standard crown height of this Havana model is 3.9" - 4.1" measuring from the brim to the top point of the crown in the front of the hat. The back of the crown is a little lower then the front giving this hat a leveler appearance from a side profile, the back measures between 3.7" - 3.9" and 4.3" - 4.4" on the side of the hat.

Snap brim on the front causing the brim to tip downward slightly and upward in the back just a little.

A Little Extra Sun Protection With a Little Larger Than Standard Snap Brim: This is the standard brim we recommend for sun protection. It provides the best balance between sun protection and style.

Brim size is a hard thing to recommend because many factors play a part in your selection, such as where you live and the culture, in addition to your personal preferences. But this brim will give that extra protection and still look great in city life (of course that is just my opinion).

Larger Than Standard Brims: There is a small charge on larger than standard brims. This is due to the time it takes the weaver to extend the brim and he will ask a bit more for his work. (Price difference is already reflected in the price shown)

Each Panama hat comes with one hat band of your choice, but you may want to include a few extra hat bands- a quick way to change the personality of your Panama hat!

Each and every Panama hat we sell is handmade right here in Ecuador, so no two hats are exactly alike.
