Of the men's casual straw hats you see here at HartfordYork.com, such as The Playavista paper straw braid fedora from Robert Graham, which should you buy? You've considered the collection of Straw Dress Hats and have taken the time to carefully peruse the full selection of Panama Hats. Now it's time to dive into casual straw and Panama hats for men, as well as those
made from other natural fibers like toyo and raffia, and see what grabs you.
You'll be choosing from the best casual spring and summer straw hat styles possible, of course, including a number of new men's hats from Bailey of Hollywood, like: The Thurman, a Panama fedora with a snap brim and center dent crown; The Sydney, a teardrop crown Panama hat with a stingy brim; and The Crother, a Shantung Lite Straw fedora with center dent crown two inch snap brim and ribbon trim.
New from the Santana by Carlos Santana line are hats like the Panama hat called The Chinmoy. This teardrop fedora features a grosgrain and hemp overlay trim with Abraxas Angel pin and is finished as you'd expect, with a branded suede sweatband and satin tip. There's The Blues too, a great pinch front Panama fedora from Santana with a two tone body and fancy band trim with an Araxas Angel pin. Also new is The Delta, a two-tone Panama hat with a pinch front, fancy band and pin.
The Zion may be the coolest hat of the season. It's a pork pie Panama hat from the Santana collection, and has a two tone body, so you can order it with the Burnt color on the crown or on the two-inch brim. The gold ribbon trim ties the Natural and Burnt colors together, and the Abraxas Angel pin gives it that Santana vibe. We've brought back the other coolest hat of the year, The Healer. This boldly woven shantung pork pie hat features an embroidered grosgrain trim and Milagro pin, and has multiple five-star reviews, some of which read:
Kaminski XY has new Spring/Summer hats for men this season, with one raffia fedora with ribbon trim in Coconut or Natural and another (with leather trim) available in your choice of four colors including Tumeric and Teal. The Tampolo is the other Kaminski XY fedora we've got for you: it's a hand-crocheted Madagascan raffia hat finished with a lightweight cotton sweatband and mesh lining for breathable comfort.
There are new casual straw hats from Tommy Bahama too, like a Panama straw fedora with leather trim and comfort-enhancing elasticized sweatband. Another is a burnt raffia fedora that features burnt raffia overlay trim and TB sailfish pin. For something a little different, there's a Tommy Bahama fedora in matte raffia, with a jute/raffia band and generous brim, as well as a raffia hat with a narrow brim, that measures nearly stingy at two inches, and is trimmed with a nicely textured band of jute and raffia.
Whether you choose one of Stetson's 150th Anniversary hats like The Aviator, a vented crown Panama fedora, or The Kelvin, a milan braid stingy brim hat, or you select a Biltmore hat like The Dijon, a hemp pork pie with fancy contrast trim, you'll be getting a quality straw hat that's light, comfortable and extremely good looking.
