The Panama Hat

Post by koimaster » March 7th 2022, 11:21am

History & How To Wear

The Panama Hat, it can be found on celebrities, explorers, world leaders, royalty and regular joes on hot summer days, whether deep in the jungle, on the sidelines of the polo field or on the streets of any major city. It is a hat that was born of the bush, used by the working man and adopted by the successful.
The Non Panama Roots

Its history, as I was to learn, began in the mid 1800’s when the Ecuadorian hat makers – where ironically true Panama Hats are hand woven – needed to sell their wares. During the California gold rush, the fastest way from the east coast was to travel by ship to Panama, cross the isthmus and catch another ship up to San Francisco. Those making the arduous journey sought relief from the oppressive sun and bought the hats made of Toquilla straw. Those gold prospectors that were successful and returned via the same route purchased new hats to accompany their new suits when walking the streets of New York and Boston.

I see it’s been a while, but I’d like to drop in and thank you for sharing this interesting piece about the Panama Hat. It's fascinating to learn about its origins and how it became popular among different groups of people. I had no idea that it was originally woven in Ecuador and then made its way to Panama during the gold rush. It's amazing how fashion trends can spread!

And speaking about the latest trends, if anyone's in the market for a custom hat that truly reflects their personality and style, I suggest checking out matohash.com. They might just have the perfect hat to match your unique vibe. It's always great to have accessories that showcase who we are.

I've been looking for one of those hats with the flaps. Faux lambswool inside. Embroidered logo on the front for a Canadian Roadhouse or obscure exploration drilling contractor. What ya got along those lines?

Good luck in search recliner.
I myself have been looking for a particular Canadian Toque with a beer bottle opener identical to this one:

Extremely difficult to find, heck, even matohash is sold out of them it seems.

They claim to have it: https://www.retrofestive.ca/canadian-drinking-toque/

But they don't ship to the US.
