Dating back to the 17th century, Panama hats have a long, rich, and somewhat surprising history. Although they are called Panama hats, they were originally made in Ecuador, where the art of weaving straw is passed down through generations. The hats gained popularity in the mid-1800s during the construction of the Panama Canal when workers wore them to protect themselves from the sun. Soon after, they became a fashionable accessory in Europe and the United States and have remained a classic and timeless accessory ever since.
At Brixton, we’ve curated a collection of stunning woven Panama hats for every occasion. From wide-brim options for a tropical beach vacation to short-brim alternatives that work well with casual dresses or more formal attire, our online range of Panama hats is made using only the best material and craftsmanship.
When it comes to wearing a Panama hat for women or men, there are a few things to keep in mind. Choose a silhouette that complements your personal style and the occasion. For a more formal look, a classic Panama hat with a wide brim similar to a classic fedora is a great choice. In this category, the Jo Panama Straw Rancher Hat in Corondao Black is an undisputed favorite. Offering all the breathability of a regular Panama hat, combined with the sleek appearance of an all-black hat, this is the perfect choice to pair with a sundress or a more structured outfit.
For a more casual look, a hat with a medium brim and a brown leather band like the Messer Straw Fedora is an excellent option. It’s perfect for pairing with a relaxed beach outfit or a pair of shorts and a button-down shirt
