Strand Hatters K10 Ecuadorian Panama Brisa Grade #8 with black band - Natural

$420

Made for Strand Hatters.

These hats are beautifully hand crafted in Ecuador by talented craftspeople.  The panama hat is the finest straw hat in the world.  Hand woven in Ecuador from Toquilla straw, they are true wearable works of art.

Brisa refers to the style in which the straw is woven, with Brisa being a lightweight, square weave. It allows for a cool, flexible hat in the summer heat. 

The grade is determined by the thickness of the straw, tightness of the weave, and of course the skill of the weaver. 

Please note: Colours may vary slightly from photographs. 

Akubra Size Guide

Measuring Your Head Size

Heads come in all sizes, and in a surprising variety of shapes.

Although Akubra hats are adaptable, and will usually conform to differences in shape with a little wearing, it is essential that the size be correct for your head.

To determine your hat size follow these 3 simple steps:
  • Measure the circumference around your head - approximately 12mm (1/2") above the ears
  • Keep the dressmaker tape level and firm, across the temple and above the eyebrow ridges.
  • Check the size chart given below.

NOTE: For in-between measurements use the next size up.

For an enduring fit with your new Akubra the following points should be considered:

  • The Sheepskin inner band of the hat may shrink slightly with use. Do not expect a tight-fitting hat to 'loosen up'
  • In time, the hat will conform to your head shape. Initially, a slightly loose-fitting hat can be adjusted using folded tissue placed behind the inner band, then removed as the hat conforms to your head shape.
