This is a beautifully made and quality hat. I’m very pleased with the craftsmanship. I ordered a size larger as suggested and it is a bit loose , so I would advise ordering your regular hat size. This hat is well worth the money. I expect it to last me quite a few years of regular wear.
The Gardener Vented Straw Panama Hat is well made and gorgeous. I will not be using it for the garden though that's why I ordered it. Maybe much later, when it starts showing a little wear. For now, it will be a summer companion. The only problem I have with this hat is that the strap does not come as pictured. It does not circle all the why around the crown and then into the holes. It only goes across the front then down. The strap is to short to make a "full circle" adjustment. Other then that minor issue, I'm very happy with the fit and quality of the product.
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.
