snap brim that measures 2 5/8 inches, giving the hat a somewhat larger silhouette, and the band is black for a very traditional look.
Another dress hat sure to garner five-star reviews is a Stetson called The Original Forty Seven
. Made from Grade 8 Panama straw, this is an unlined hat
with a four inch crown, ribbon band trim and grosgrain sweatband. The Brewster
is also deemed a fine Panama dress hat
from Stetson, this one with contrast grosgrain ribbon trim above a 2 1/4 inch bound brim.
From Christys' you'll find a Panama safari
with a 2 1/2 inch brim, covered crown tip, and handsome grograin trim and pin. It is part of our Made in the USA
hat collection, and certainly deserves a top spot on any dress hat rack. If it's an overtly western style dress hat
you seek this summer, Stetson offers The Open Road
in straw. It's a classic silhouette that needs no introduction, and the price is absolutely right.
For a broad brim dress hat, Christys' offers a full three inches on a Grade 8 Safari Panama hat
. It's treated with Weatherall for long-lasting protection and finished with a grosgrain sweatband and trim. If it's a stingy brim
you want for a hot summer night, The Lakewood
from Bailey of Hollywood might be the ticket. This Panama hat has a slightly open weave Hamaca/Cuenca teardrop crown, a contrast colored brim, and a grosgrain trim with bow and metal studs. Very cool.
The pinch front fedora from Stacy Adams called The Little Rock
is another dress hat
that certainly won't disappoint with its distinctive styling and superb craftsmanship. Made of a polybraid, it features a handsome striped satin trim with bow and nearly stingy two inch brim. By now you'll probably agree that the dress hats
at MensHats.com are nothing if not exceptional.
