print overlay and you'll see an Abraxas Angel pin too. The Salvador
is another new Santana offering this season. The shantung pinch front fedora
has a striking grosgrain trim with ribbon overlay and Abraxas Angel pin. For you Santana trivia buffs, Abraxas
is the name of Santana's second album and it's a mystical word used by Gnostic Greeks as a charm. Kind of adds a touch of Guitar Heaven
spirituality to the Santana hats, wouldn't you say?
Perhaps the coolest lid of the year is a Santana pork pie hat
called The Healer
. This boldly woven shantung hat is trimmed with an embroidered grosgrain ribbon and Milagro pin. Milagro
, for those of you who don't know, is the Spanish word for miracle
. Another hat I think is really cool is The Carlos Sleek
. From the Carlos by Carlos Santana line, this is a pinch front Sinamay fedora
with a stingy 1 1/2 inch brim with bound edge. There's a contrast ribbon trim and guitar pin, and right now the hat is available in your choice of Natural or Black.
Light in weight and color, The Liberation
is a stingy brim hat
in toyo. The vented fedora has a bound edge, pinch front and tie print trim. It's another new product from the Carlos by Carlos Santana line, and I think you'll like it. You should also take a look at The Drifter
. This is a toyo and paper braid fedora
in a checked pattern of browns and black with a solid color stingy brim. The trim is a ribbon with bow paper braid overlay, finished by a guitar pin. Compliments await.
For the dreamers out there, Carlos by Carlos Santana has come up with a dreamy paper braid hat featuring a design of endless swirls. The Dreamer
is a stingy brim fedora
with a bound edge, leather trim and guitar pin. There's another fedora from The Carlos Hats Collection, this one back by customer demand. Called The Mohican
, it's a vented toyo stingy brim hat and you'll note the trim is an interesting series of ribbon overlays completed with a silver guitar pin. One satisfied customer says the hat is of "good quality and workmanship," and calls it "a good summertime hat
" because it is "well vented." He's right.
More customer favorites include The Collective
, a stingy brim fedora
in a lightweight and comfortable blend of polyester and cotton braid. Intricate in design, this dress hat is finished with a suede band and overlay, and features roped piping and applique, with an Abraxas Angel pin. There's also a stunning fedora for warm weather wear called The Soloing
. This bound stingy brim hat
from the Santana by Carlos Santana line is crafted from extra fine palmilla. It boasts a classic pinch front and is trimmed with a leather huarache-style weave band. The handwoven zarape sweatband adds wearer comfort -- you may never take it off!
There's even a Panama hat
from Carlos Santana, very smooth in a shade called putty. The Sacred Fire
satin-lined fedora has a stingy brim, faux leather trim, hand branded heart design and Abraxas Angel pin. If you knew that Sacred Fire
is also the name of the 1993 Santana album dedicated to the life of Latino civil rights activist, Cesar Chavez, you're a true Santana trivia champ.
from Santana are always big sellers and include The Spirit
, a washed cotton leather-trimmed cap that features embroidered art on its brim, sides and inside the crown, and The Soul
, also in cotton, and detailed with the Santana name and guitar emblem in embroidery on the brim and crown. Both Santana caps
have a true-fit velcro backstrap, thus rendering them practical in addition to being esoteric and just plain cool.
