just-barely stingy brim measuring two inches, we've got quite a collection for your delectation.
Hats from Tommy Bahama are always cause for celebration, and the new stingy brim in paper braid with ribbon trim and palm tree pin, is sheer summertime delight. Same goes for the TB toyo hat, with a 1 1/2 inch brim. From the Tommy Bahama Relax line, this hat features a faux leather bound edge and piping on the grosgrain ribbon trim with a marlin pin as a finishing touch.
There's a stingy brim Panama hat from Biltmore you might like, and it's a beaut! This pinch front front Montecristi fedora will turn heads with its just-stingy two inch brim, four inch crown and grosgrain trim with bow. As one satisfied customer wrote: "Beautiful entry level Monticristi. Looks sharp." If you're looking for something really exceptional, consider The Ventilated Montecristi Panama from Borsalino. This fedora also just makes the two inch brim stingy definition, and the hand weave is incredible. Each hat is one of a kind, with its own weave pattern, so you'll have something truly unique. Customers who've bought this hat say:
This Montecristi is a great and incredibly comfortable hat.
Outstanding hat. This is just the best hat ever - great style and very high quality craftsmanship.
We've brought back a couple of linen walking hats that are stingy brim hats as well, with brims measuring in at 1 1/2 inches. The Tuillerie is from Anthony Peto of Paris, and this beautifully crafted trilby is in a richly textured linen with contrast lining. From JB Stetson, you can pick up The Stetson Plaid Trilby, a nifty little Italian made linen hat available in your choice of three colorful plaids.
There's a new stingy brim hat from Bailey of Hollywood with a 1 5/8 inch snap brim. It's a braid fedora with a nice teardrop crown and (until it sells out), you can choose it in Sand or Black. Or both. With a larger brim measuring two inches, there's a pork pie hat from Santana that's become a customer favorite. Called The Healer, it's a shantung woven hat with a striking grosgrain trim. Five star reviews read as follows:
Beautiful hat. Excellent style and fit.
Smooth. Love my new lid.
Classic rule breaker. Such a cool design with unexpected anti-conformist flare.
Getting back to stingier brim measurements, there's another Santana lid that's very popular, and this one has a 1 3/4 inch brim. Called The Collective it's a lightweight and comfortable stingy brim fedora in a blend of polyester and cotton braid, and is quite intricate in design. Finished with a suede band and overlay, it also features roped piping and applique and has an Abraxas Angel pin on the trim. Impeccable.
