A summer sartorial staple, the Classic Panama is a truly timeless piece.
Hand-woven in Ecuador by craftsmen and craftswomen, using skills passed down for generations. Woven from the finest toquila-palm fibres. Lock & Co. Panamas are blocked by hand, using traditional methods, then trimmed with fine grosgrain ribbon, and finished with a beautifully soft leather sweatband. For longevity and shape-retention, we add silicon inside the pinch. Our Classic Panamas are selected carefully to ensure that they are the best in the world.
The style bears all the hallmarks of Lock & Co. - quality, style, longevity, and craftsmanship.
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.
How to clean your Panama
If your Panama hat becomes dirty, use steam from a household kettle and brush gently with a pure bristle brush to help remove dust and dirt. Do not brush or rub too hard, which may damage the weave. For minor marks, use a clean pencil rubber.
