Panama Hats vs Fedora Hats
While similar in design and style, the main difference between Panama hats and fedoras is the material used to make them. Panamas are made of toquilla straw, while fedora hats can be made from felt, cotton or even polyester. Panamas are also almost exclusively designed for warm weather, making them the ideal sun hat for men around the world. Can’t decide between a fedora or a Panama?

How do you Pick the Right Size Panama Hat?
When choosing a classic fedora Panama hat, remember that the brim should be in proportion to your shoulders. Narrow brim for a slender frame. Wider brim for broader shoulders.
How to Measure Your Head for the Right Size Panama Hat
1. Place a tape measure around your head where the hat’s inner band will sit.
2. Let the ends meet on your forehead.
3. Make sure the tape measure is not too tight.
4. Read the circumference from the tape measure and choose your size.
If you prefer to tilt your hat in a certain way, measure so that the tape measure falls where the hat’s inner band will sit – usually 1 cm above the ears. If your head circumference is in the lower end of a size, a pair of hat sizers will give you a better fit.
