    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.

    At last

    I've lost count on how many hats that I've bought over the years that didn't work out and ended up in the closet because they didn't fit, didn't look right, were shoddily constructed etc. I had made up my mind to never again buy a hat unless I could try it on first. Then I saw the Bayou Western. I looked at it for several weeks. It seemed a little on the expensive side for a "trust-me," but it looked right. I finally pulled the trigger and ordered it, and I'm so glad I did; I have finally found a hat that met all my qualifiers. I ordered another, only to be told that it had been so popular that it had sold out. I left my order in anyway, and now I have a backup to what turned out to be the hat for me.

    Best money I’ve spent in a while

    I was hesitant to spend 175.00 on a hat - that said I’m beyond pleased. I think it just may be the best 175.00 I’ve spent in a very long time. If you are on the fence about an Ultrafino hat rest assured it is money well spent.
