the Panama hat has quite a history. it’s practicality and style have served it well over the centuries. From its beginnings in the 17th century, to Theodore Roosevelt and its rise to icon status, it’s fame was further established in acclaimed hollywood movies like “to kill a mockingbird” and “gone with the wind.” today, its classic, contemporary, and practical elements are gracing the heads of thousands of spectators at one the world’s most celebrated sporting events Rolland Garros. this is a hat transcending time, bringing history to present day and it’s track record proves it can be worn with almost anything from a silk suit to current street styles. with white denim jeans, a kimono-style top, bright belt and wrap bracelets, this hat certainly “tops off” my look. with the perfect wide brimmed hat to shelter me from the sun, i’m ready to take the oklahoma fields by storm.
