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 owned numerous Panama hats, mostly in the $100-$200 range, some better than others. This tops them all. It is light and airy. It holds its shape. The proportions are just right. It is plenty attractive—which you can judge for yourself, because the online pictures faithfully represent the actual look of the hat from each angle. Comfortable to wear, too. And it is well made—to my eye, it appears to be a combination of cuenca and brisa weaves, the cuenca in just the right places for durability. It comes with size-reducing tape, in case the fit is slightly large—experienced hat wearers encounter this all the time, it’s not an issue, the reducing tape is the fix. Additionally, Ultrafino has been a pleasure to deal with.
Great quality! Finely made! Fits perfectly! Looks great! Compliments galore!
Looks just like the picture and I feel it fits perfectly!
I wear hats all the time as I keeps my head from being sunburned. I have Stetson fedoras and off brand woven styles. The Ultrafino Portafino is the absolute best summer hat I have ever worn. Thank you for a great product!
Excellent workmanship. The staff was very helpful in making this selection.
