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.

    Another winner!

    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.

    A classy, manly, hat

    In a time of confusion and chaos, the Ultrafino Authentic Classic stands out as the choice of hat for any man that wants to look like a real well dressed man. This is the ultimate dude hat that will make you stand out like a gentleman. This amazing hat will enhance what you wear and it will draw out your manly personality. If this was a bottle of wine, it would be among the best wines you ever tasted. If it were a bottle of bourbon, it would be a among the best of bourbons. If you smoke cigars, this hat will make you look even better. In a time when many guys dress like slobs, this hat will allow you to stand out as a first class gentleman. I highly recommend this hat. I have a nice collection of Ultrafino hats. This one is my favorite.

    Everything about the hat is right but I wish it had a little bit bigger brim.

    Excellent quality

    I really loved the hat. I was looking for a hat for sunny vacations that was high quality while still maintaining a degree of affordability. This hat fit the bill and then delivered. It also looks great on my head.

    Superb Panama

    Superb entry level Panama hat that wears well with finer and casual garb; Authentic, sturdy construction and light as a feather. You can’t go wrong with this hat. I plan to mix it up with other hat bands for greater flexibility.
