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.

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.

Just bought the Venicia and I love it! It great for protection against the Sun.
I own five hats now from Ultrafino and love them all. I prefer wide brimmed hats due to my fair complication. The Venicia has a huge brim for a men’s hat. Aside from keeping the Texas sun off my face, neck, and shoulders, it’s impossible to not feel a bit important while wearing this hat!
First of all, after careful measuring following instructions on site, the hat is too small. Also, It feels very stiff and I was expecting it to be more similar to other panama type hats I have purchased in wide price range. Lastly, the color is darker than I want, but I’m exchanging, not returning, but definitely wish it were better quality. Maybe when I get the right size and wear it, I can report a better review!!
The weather in Arkansas at this time is one day hot next day cold. Every time I wear my new hat on hot days I am stopped and ask where did I get the hat . I now carry one of the cards that came with the hat so when asked about my hat I can give them your stores name. I enjoy being asked. Tony
Venicia is amazing ! Been looking for one and Ultafino's quality fit and finish are awesome . Sizing right on as well . Great straw all around !
I love this hat so much and everywhere I go I received so many complements on the quality. My puppy had her way chewing up my first one and I was so sad and missed wearing it that I just had to replenish !! I’m So glad I did! And yes, lesson learned 🐾 puppy has lots of other chew toys now! You won’t be disappointed with this TOP quality!
