Lock & Co. are proud to launch a new limited edition James Bond hat. View

Fairbanks Panama

Our Fairbanks Panama is cut from the same block as our Fairbanks trilby one of our most enduring and best-selling styles.  The style is perfectly proportioned – the brim is not too wide; the crown is not too high – and so it fits well and suits most people.

Our Fairbanks Panama is individual and unique, and is hand-woven from a superior quality, high-grade toquilla palm straw by expert craftspeople in Ecuador.  Finished with a grosgrain band, that has all the signature features of Lock & Co.; quality, durability and craftsmanship. 

Fairbanks Panama



Brim Width: 7 cm
Crown Height: 10 cm


Always handle your Panama hat by the brim to avoid distorting the crown. Avoid wearing a Panama in the rain. Dry with a clean, absorbent cloth or sponge if it gets wet. Panama hats are best stored in a hat box, away from direct sunlight.

Spot-clean using a damp cloth and leave to dry at room temperature.


Handwoven in Ecuador by craftsmen and craftswomen using skills passed down for generations from the finest toquilla-palm fibres. Lock & Co. Panamas are blocked by hand using traditional methods, then trimmed with a black band, and finished with a beautifully soft leather sweatband.

Styling & Fitting

The style is perfectly proportioned – the brim is not too wide; the crown is not too high – and so it fits well and suits most people.

Angle this hat to suit your mood and the occasion. Your Panama should comfortably sit midway down your forehead above your eyebrows, but without obstructing your view in any way.

This style comes with a complementary hat box and is also available in mocha
