The Panama Hat

Despite the misleading name the Panama hat is acutally of Ecuadorian origin. After being hand woven in Montecristi the hats were shipped to the port of Panama before being distributed all over the world.The hat derived its name due to where it was being shipped from .Made from the toquilla straw, the Panama hat is light weight and breathable making it a great option for summer head wear. I picked mine up on ebay and it shipped directly from Ecuador to my doorstep. It even came with a wooden box for travel. I simply fold and roll the hat and I am good to go. I am not a hat person but I decided to step out of my comfort zone to see how this would work. For this look I chose an unstructured and unlined oxford cotton blazer and paired it with the navy knit tie. Enough talking already below are the pictures.
