from Scala are always popular warm weather choices, and include The Crocheted Raffia Outback
, an open weave hat with a three-inch brim, leather trim and elasticized sweatband. The reviews are in for this one: "Great quality, very comfortable. A perfect hat for summer wear" and "Great hat with perfect fit!" The Gambler
is another raffia hat
that boasts a large brim and elasticized sweat. This men's hat is trimmed with a jute band and palm tree badge. Another Scala men's hat
in raffia is The Joshua Outback
. The raffia straw used in these hats, it should be noted, is not only organic, but also crushable so that you can pack or roll the hats without damage for easy travel.
There's The Matte Raffia Safari
you'll want to see too. This fedora
is available (in some sizes) in either Natural or Tea and features a 2 1/2 inch brim, faux leather trim with raffia overlay. When an extra wide brim is required, The Lifeguard
is for you. This raffia beach hat
with faux leather chin cord has a five-inch brim for real sun protection and is made with naturally harvested, 100% organic raffia straw from Madagascar.
There are other Panama hats for men
from Scala, of course, and the collection includes some of the best they've offered to date. The Cubano
, for instance, is sheer classic with its "C Crown", 2 5/8 inch brim and dark grosgrain trim with bow--just read the reviews! Same goes for The Scala Jamaican
, a Panama hat
in safari style. You'll recognize the unmistakeable silhouette of The Big Brim Gambler
, another of Scala's fabulous Panama hats
, with its great broad brim. This hat has a Weatherall coating for a little added protection in the event of spring showers.
You won't go wrong in your Scala hat
, whether you're in The Expedition
, a hardy cloth hat
with leather trim, or The Bryan
, a vent ivy cap
available in three basic colors. And if perchance you do go astray in your ball cap
, you'll look really good doing it.
