If you're looking for a budget panama there is a retailer that goes by the name of Borges and Scott, they sell their seconds on e bay here:


I got one last summer and for the money i was quite impressed, obviously not up there with the best but for a summer/travelling hat absolutely fine.

Especially for the money, they look like a steal :)

I am sure the Christy Panama's at the York Hat Shop are not that much more expensive.

Panama hats is such a fascinating subject. But where and when do most people actually wear their hats?
It's a real investment obtaining a good quality one and obviously one would not want it collecting dust c/w the occasional spray or mist stream to keep it subtle; so when and where do you wear it AND what reactions do you get when you wear it?

I have to wear headgear pretty much most of the time, owing to solar keratosis (pre cancerous skin damage) so the panama comes out on the rare occasions in the west of Scotland that the sun shines. Usually any times it gets mentioned it's pretty complimentary, along the lines of "nice hat" or "It's nice to see a smart hat". Apart, of course, from some of the local youths who encourage me with such lines as, "Go on yourself you auld coffin dodger !".
