Panama hats are not from Panama but from Ecuador. They are made from toquilla leaves (Latin name Carludovica palmata), and therefore a panama hat is not a style but rather a hat from this particular straw material. Panama hats are blocked in virtually any style.
Made in Ecuador and blocked in Italy, this Trendy Colored Bowler Panama is a superb Borsalino creation. Structured and durable comes with a grosgrain ribbon band and a sweat band.
