I just received it and have only worn it once - all indications are that this is a great hat. I’ll probably reserve it’s use for more formal occasions such as outdoor weddings, receptions, family dinners and the like as I have many less formal hats. So far, very happy with my purchase - it’s a great looking hat!
I really love this hat. I'd been searching for one for a long time and was frustrated because of ill-fitting hats and lack of quality. Ultrafino solved all of that. The 7 1/8 fits me perfectly and the quality of this hat is on the high end. My wife and are so intrigued with the back story that we're planning a trip to Cuenca for the holidays.
This is my second Panama from Ultrafino (the first being their “Hand Finished” model.) Both are light and comfortable, great for sun protection, and really breathable. The weave is tight enough to be really nice looking but loose enough to let the air pass through. Very happy with both. Think I’ll add their Malta Sienna hat for a trifecta! Thanks Ultrafino!
