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.

The hat arrived in a decent time frame and in perfect condition. The brim is a little larger than I expected but after trying it out it really suits me well. The quality is good and this hat is now my go to summer hat that pairs well with all my summer suits.
My Authentic Classic Panama hat arrived looking great as expected. I am currently on a 3 week trip through Italy and have found the hat to not be particularly cool and to require more maintenance than expected. The sweatband is easily overwhelmed in the Italian heat and humidity resulting in stains on the straw. And today the hatband fell off because the adhesive was not up to the task. I have had several compliments on the hat and I like the looks. But when I return to the U.S. I will need to order a hat cleaning kit and to reglue the hat band. If you wear this hat in ideal weather conditions it might work for you. But if you want a great-looking, troublefree Panama that requires little attention look elsewhere.
This is a great hat! Exactly what I have been looking for! Looks great on me! Great for the summer! Hot!
Excellent construction and great customer service
Truly an authentic Panama. Fits great. Looks even better.
Some time ago, I ordered a brown felt hat for winter. With summer approaching, I wanted a hat that would look nice and be comfortable in Texas heat. I ordered the Authentic Classic and it arrived in no time. My high school was having an alumni weekend, I added the hat to the outfit I picked out for a dinner I planned on attending. The hat fit perfectly and with it, I managed to win a best-dressed male award. Sure, the sport jacket and slacks looked nice but the hat was the finishing touch- like icing on a cake.
