PANAMA STRAW HAT is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice hat I were a size L in hats, so was a bit apprehensive that the sizing L/XL might be a bit too big. At first wearing, size did seem to big, and the crown also seemed rather large. I thought about sending it back. What I later realized is that the sizing is really XL, but the sweat band has elastic in it, which causes it move in towards the head. This allows a slightly larger size to accommodate the next size down. This works on this hat due to its light weight. So the hat fits lightly on the head but stays in place. The crown is slightly taller than average. That plus the light color make it look large in proportion to the face if worn straight across the head, i.e. parallel to the ground. The fix was to wear it tilted slightly to the back, which reduced the appearance of the size of the crown and increased face exposure, creating a more balanced look. Originally, I did not think the brim was shapeable and would therefore be slightly downsloping, 360 degrees, which gave the hat an unflattering upside down slightly bucket look. I later discovered that it was shapeable to a degree, and shaped the sides of the brim to a 90 degree angle from the crown, with the front and rear slightly downsloping. When worn slightly tilted backward, this produced a nice look and I came to really like the hat. It has a subtle western look without shouting I wannabe a cowboy. Suggestions: reduce the crown by 1/4 inch and give it a slight taper from bottom to top, add a chin strap. I had called customer service to try to verify the sizing. The lady whom I spoke to was excellent and worked out a satisfactory arrangement to alleviate my concerns and caused me to go ahead with the purchase. 2 thumbs up to the customer rep.
