Handwoven in Ecuador. Hand-finished in the US. Measurements are approximate, this is a handwoven product and actual measurement may slightly vary.

If your measurement falls between sizes, choose the next largest size. A looser fit is recommended as you can use hat size reducer tape to help nail the perfect fit.

Included with this hat:

1 Paul Lashton Protect & Repair Crown Insert with Adhesive Backing

  • The easiest way to protect your prized hat. If you have owned a straw hat for long enough, you've probably discovered that over time the crown of the hat can begin to crack. This can be from frequent pinching of the crown (which you shouldn't do) or from simple wear and tear. This insert is designed to protect and prevent cracking of the crown. Simply peel and stick onto the inner crown of your hat. Made with an adhesive backing that’s been formulated to last a long time and not leave behind any adhesive if chosen to remove.

2 Hat Size Reducer Strips 4”

  • Have a hat that fits a little too loose on your head? Use a size reducer strip to easily give your hat a more snug and perfect fit! Just peel the back from the adhesive and stick it behind the sweatband of the hat. With the use of two strips, your hat can be reduced to about 1/2 of a size!

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.

    Perfect Portofino

    Made an impressive upgrade thru your sale which I'm so happy I did. Have purchased several of the cheaper hats over the years & finally moved up & what a major difference. Took about 6 weeks to get to Canada but we'll worth the wait. Will always come back here to purchase my Panama hats.

    great hat

    shipping says 5-9 days but took 16 days from shop in Washington to California ... not sure if sat on shelve or USPS dragged their feet

    Beat hat, great company

    I am so pleased with my Portofino from Ultrafino…My hat was delivered in a box the protected it very well. The fit was perfect, the weave was tight and the company’s follow up was prompt and respectful…Already thinking about my next purchase, I’m now looking at the Santa Fe. These hats are worth the price.

    The Perfect Panama Hat!

    I can't say enough good about this hat. I love it. I had the premium leather sweatband put in along with the turquoise leather hat band. Ultrafino did an amazing job. It looks beautiful and fits perfect. The craftsmanship is outstanding. This is now my favorite hat and I have 7 hats from Ultrafino. I will never shop anywhere else for my hat needs. Well done Ultrafino!!!

    Great hate but worried about durability

    This was my first Panama hat purchase. The hat fits and looks great. I am a little worried about a fey stray pieces of straw that are sticking up around the hat. I’m worried they may lead to more of the straw coming out of its weave. Only time will tell if this hat lasts.
