Panama hat
Product Details

The legendary Panama hat gained its iconic status when President Theodore Roosevelt wore one on his visit to the Panama Canal. Since then, these hats have graced the heads of style greats ranging from Ernest Hemingway to Paul Newman (you can't get much more authentic than that). Woven by hand in Ecuador from fronds of the toquilla palm (so no two are exactly alike), it's the perfect tomboy touch to pretty much any ensemble.

  • Natural toquilla straw.
  • Interior cotton sweatband.
  • Import.

Panama hat

Rated 1 out of 5 by Shoddy quality -- already falling apart in store Absolutely terrible quality. I've been eyeing this online and went into the store to try it on and get the correct size. Every single hat in the store was already coming apart. The salespeople were dusting off the shelves because the weaving was falling all over clothes that were on display under the hats. The shape, color and size of the brim are perfect but if you plan on actually wearing the hat (which is kind of the purpose) you may want to look elsewhere. (It seems like this may only be an issue with the 2015 iteration of the hat, seems as though the summer 2014 one got great reviews.) I have to say, the price of J.Crew clothing and accessories has stayed the same and/or increased in the last year while the quality of ALL clothes (materials that are used, quality of the seams, etc.) has gone downhill. I used to shop at J.Crew (and its sister Madewell) pretty regularly, but the quality is so poor I rarely buy anything anymore. March 25, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Tore after a single wear I hadn't even worn it for 20 minutes and it started to unweave right in the front. They wouldn't take it back because it was "worn". Frustrating. February 22, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Fun for summer Got this hat for a Havana Night's themed party. I like it, but they all fit differently. I would advise buying it in store if you can so you can try them on. This size small was a bit big so I went to the store and found another size small that was tighter. But still a great buy! I would recommend the natural over the white if you are havign trouble deciding :) May 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by a great classic i love this hat and I think it should be a staple in everyone's spring/summer wardrobe. I bought the small-medium and i think it ran a little large. it's a fedora style, which I think flatters every face shape. I purchased the white which is beautiful, but it is more of an off-white than a true bright white. May 28, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by My Favorite Hat!!! I've been wanting this hat for 2 seasons now and finally bought it in black. I'm seriously kicking myself for not purchasing sooner. It is the most comfortable hat I've ever owned. I love that there are size options available - I have a smaller head so one size fits all does not work for me. This hat is so great, a week after purchase I went back and bought the Natural colorway too! May 7, 2014
