Determining your hat size is quick and easy. All you need is some sort of tape measure or string that can be measured. You can also watch our video that shows how we measure hat size.
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.

I have always worn a traditional real felt fedora during the colder months... just never found a decent panama fedora for summer time. I researched quite a bit and not willing to put out 1K plus for a (straw) hat, I took a chance with the Gatsby. It is perfect!!! I like the shorter crown, it is comfortable and even like the cloth instead of leather sweat band.. Leather is terrible as a sweatband in hot weather... winter fedora's ok... but not what this is for. The form is great and I'll wear it for the rest of the summer and see how it holds up,,, If it does as I expect, I will be shopping for next summer on this site and try out another style or 2. Oh, and did I say I have a big head and Ultrafino has my size???
I love the feel of the hat and casual, yet elegant, image it portrays! Perfect fit, beautifully woven, not stiff but retains shape well!
I bought my first Gatsby 5 years ago. Over the years, it has gotten quite a bit sweat stained, so I relegated it to my around the house/yard hat and ordered another one. This hat gets more compliments than any other hat I own.
I do prefer the older stretchy inner band, but both are very comfortable.
The hat is great, I was a little put off trying to get into the store on a Friday.. Web site said it was open but no one was there. Had to drive another 200 Miles RT to get the hat. Personnel was very helpful.
I bought a fine Ecuadorian ("Panama") hat from these nice and knowledgeable people. I was a very good experience and it is a great hat. Well worth it, and it saved me a trip to Ecuador.
