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

    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.

    * Ultrafino does not assume responsibility for damage to the product resulting from alternative use or care that is not compliant with the instructions provided here.

      Finally a great hat!

      I've tried other vendors' panama hats several times. Finally a vendor with a quality product!

      Great Hat

      I dont think I got what I ordered but its still Great. I wanted one exactly the same as my last order, snap brim and a 1.5" ribbon.
      I got a flat brim and a 1" ribbon. Still really nice hat though.

      Authentic classic

      This is a great looking hat. I actually bought for golf but it is not ventilated so it’s a bit warm. that being said it’s a great hat for going out. Very sharp.

      The ventilated hats are designed for golf on warm/hot days.

      Beautiful straw Fedora

      I love my cool weather fedora's and wanted one for the summer months. This Panama hat handmade in Ecuador is absolutely beautiful. The fit is correct. That being said I believe it will be perfect once I add the Paul Lashton sweat stain guard. (I tend to perspire at the drop of a hat). My next Panama hat will also be an Ultrafino.
