like all the Biltmore hats you see here, it's made in the USA, and ships directly from the manufacturer in Texas. In fact, you'll have to allow for a few extra days for delivery, so you'll want to plan accordingly.
A couple more Panama hats from Biltmore
are available throughout the year, and one is called The Havana
, with a pinch front, black ribbon trim with pin and brim that's just over two inches. The price is right on this hat, as it is on The Casa Blanca
, another Panama pinch front fedora
, this one with a 2 3/8 inch snap brim, de rigeur
grosgrain trim with bow and pin and fitted with a cotton sweatband. One happy customer in his five-star review of The Casa Blanca
said: "Superb styling and craftsmanship. Perfect fit."
For pork pie hats
in hemp and straw, Biltmore delivers very nicely. There's The Dijon
, for instance, a stingy brim pork pie offered only in Black, with a fancy contrast trim (look for its all-black counterpart in a fedora
called The Charleston
). Another hemp pork pie hat
is The Memphis
. In Natural and boasting a telescope crown, it has a two-inch brim and wide trim with bow. The Montego
is a Panama pork pie hat
, fitted with a cotton sweatband and finished with a dark band and bow. One customer said of his: "Like the look and the feel. It's the right hat for me."
