The Hastings porkpie hat for men is full of charm and is hand-woven from the finest toquilla palm, using generations-old techniques by artisans in Ecuadorian villages. A spring and summer sartorial staple, this take on the classic Panama offers a porkpie hat style that retains its natural colouring and is truly a timeless piece. Lightweight, the hat keeps you cool even in warmer climates, and is an elegant addition to your spring and summer style.
This porkpie Panama style bears all the hallmarks of a true Lock & Co. hat and is unlined and finished with an internal leather sweatband so that it stays firmly in place.
Hatter's Tip: Wear this hat at a slight tilt, be very gentle with it, and never pinch the crown. Regular steams are highly recommended.
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.
