    Handwoven in Ecuador. Hand-finished in the US. Measurements are approximate, this is a handwoven product and actual measurement may slightly vary.

    Note: we do not recommend rolling up this hat for periods longer than a few hours or rolling it up often as it can begin to lose its shape or crack over time.

    If your measurement falls between sizes, choose the next largest size. A looser fit is recommended as you can use hat size reducer tape to help nail the perfect fit.

    Rituals have a purpose. To care for your Ultrafino hat, follow these simple step-by-step tips:

    1. To maintain its shape, lift the hat using both the front and back brim with both hands. Do not take the hat from the dome.

    2. Avoid hanging the hat always on the same side.

    3. To remove dust, keep the straw elastic or remove small stains from the straw, apply PAUL LASHTON STRAW HAT CLEANING KIT on the affected area. Avoiding the engraved gold Ultrafino logo.

    4. If the hat gets wet, dab it with a soft cloth and let it dry in a ventilated place away from direct light and heat, for better protection of your Panama hat add PAUL LASHTON STRAW HAT REPELLENT KIT.

    5. If the hat is rollable, do not leave it folded for more than 48 hours. Keep the hat away from direct light, humidity, and heat.

    6. If you need to re-shape or to preserve the shape of the Panama straw hat use PAUL LASHTON PREMIUM STRAW HAT STIFFENER KIT.

    Finest hat I have in my collection.

    I have been buying colonial style Panama hats for over 10 years. This one is the highest quality. Extremely satisfied.

    I have bought Panama Hats in Puerto Rico and the quality from Ultrafino is unsurpassed. I have purchased the Tiffany for my wife, daughter and daughter-in-law. It looks stylish and expensive.

    Outstanding hat 🎩

    This is a good looking hat and this style of hat can not be found in my city. Thank you.

    Distinctly (and distinguishingly) Different

    Stylish with a white dinner jacket or a blue jean jumper. I frequently wear it with seersucker suits, jackets, or a navy blazer and white linen trousers. It's a head turner and conversation starter. If you aren't familiar, I suggest you review the history of this unique style--people are bound to ask why it's called an "optimo."
