Determining your hat size is quick and easy. All you need is some sort of tape measure or string that can be measured. You can also watch our video that shows how we measure hat size.
Place the tape around your head right above your ear. It should across your mid-forehead, 1/8" above your ear, completely circling your head, and taut.
Then use the chart below to find your 'Label' size. If you are in between sizes choose the next largest size.
Use this chart to determine your Hat Size. We use the fitted row for our products.

The Panama hat is a finely woven hat made out of toquilla palms on Ecuador’s Pacific coast. The finer the weave, the finer the hat. A hat that is considered to be of 'Ultrafino' grade contains at least 600 weaves per square inch and takes about 6 months to make. When the company was started in 2003 the first hat ever sold was an Ultrafino grade Panama Hat. The name Ultrafino had a certain feeling of excitement, uniqueness, and quality. We wanted all of our products to radiate the same feeling of owning an Ultrafino grade hat. And so began Ultrafino Panama Hats.
Ultrafino means ultra-fine in Spanish and it has become the raw definition of the company. Everything we do is aligned to the name. We strive to provide ultra-fine customer service while providing ultra-fine quality hats.

The hat is beautiful and my husband loves it. I requested to exchange for a slightly smaller size and customer service suggested sending a free hat reducer band. It took a couple of tries to get it to me, but customer service was terrific to ensure I received the reducers. They worked and the hat fits perfectly. Very happy with the purchase.
‘‘Tis is a very good hat at a reasonable price. I enjoy the wide brim and the lightweight construction. The manufacturing and materials authentic. I receive many compliments.
The Monte Cristo Fedora Straw Hat is very well made and it fits me perfectly. I've purchased other Panama hats and this one is of very high quality. I'm going to enjoy wearing this hat during the spring and summer.
Ultrafino just keeps them coming -right up there with the best. Style, color, manufacture and fit couldn’t be better.
Of all the hats I have recently ordered to add to my existing collection, I cannot decide if I like this one or the top hat more. However, if I had to pick one it would definitely be this one! As the name implies, the Ultrafino Monte Cristo Straw Fedora Panama hat is Ultra Fine in quality and construction. The sizing was perfect, as was the fit and finish. I could honestly not believe that I found such a quality hat at such a value. In addition, the packaging for shipping was perfect. A custom box with a cut out to hold the crown in a stable position and keep the brim from being negatively affected by shipping.
I'm TOTALLY going to buy more of these for my family and maybe another color for myself. I can see this hat becoming a daily wear for me. In fact, I'm wearing it as I write this review. I'm one very happy customer.
