Determining your hat size is quick and easy. All you need is some sort of tape measure or string that can be measured.
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.

Stellar product and value for money. This is my third purchase and will continue to add to my collection.
The fit is perfect. It appears to be well made. The weave was not as fine as I expected.
This is my second Carter. The expert craftsmanship of this hat is truly beyond words. This is definitely a great example of getting what you pay for.
Ultrafino Panamanian straw hats are the perfect accessory to add accent to any gentleman’s or ladies ensemble. With many styles and materials and embellishments to pick and choose from it is difficult not to be impressed. The quality is readily noticeable the moment one opens up the hatbox that comes complimentary with many of their hats. The tightness of their Ecuadorian straw weaver’s artistry in producing a lightweight and efficient sunblocking hat that one needs only to put on to fully appreciate. The buyer will have many years of satisfaction with their purchase.
I have it four stars out of five only because I would have preferred a leather sweatband to their cloth one that was made for my CARTER hat. Still, dollar for dollar, a great investment that you will be proud to wear anywhere.
