Today it's a gorgeous 70 degrees in the SF Bay Area. I donned my Panama for the first time since October. It sure felt good!...KC

I certainly hope they get in trouble. I had to put on my old western beater to shovel the driveway this evening. Sheesh !!!

I have worn mine... but not because the weather was right.

Although Indonesia is a tropical country, since early this year we've been experiencing very heavy rain and wind, until today. That's why I postpone my plan to search for straw fedora... this foul weather would ruin it in a matter of seconds!

It's rainy today but Spring is right around the corner! We just went through a week or more of Panama weather. Unfortunately, my Montecristi was vacationing in Oregon with a certain semi-well known hatter who's initials are Art Fawcett.

The important thing is that it's back and looks great. I might have to visit Art and see what he can do with me!

I wish I could wear mine, but it's currently 20 degrees out. At least that's warmer than the 3 degree day we had over the weekend.:mad:

Tom, this was from the San Francisco Ukulele Festival, held last September. This was my first serious Panama from Paul's Hat Works in San Francisco...

I'm waiting for Panama hat (and Hawaiian shirt) weather as well. Especially after yesterday's ice storm. :(

Hi,

San Francisco weather and Seattle weather tend to be roughly similar. Not this year, apparently! It's still too cold & wet for Panamas & other straws up here in Seattle.

This weekend though, it'll finally stretch to 60F/15C. I'll break a couple of straws out of storage just to celebrate the approach of spring. One of them I bought last year on eBay from Mrs. PanamaBob. It lacks the greatness of a true PanamaBob, perhaps, but at least I know it's not a fake Panama made in China or some such place.

Cheers,
Mark

It's always Hawaiian Shirt weather as far as I'm concerned. Sometimes an undershirt is needed, but I always wear Hawaiian shirts except when a band uniform shirt is required, or a Long Sleeve and Coat are needed.

Kaleponi Craig - ALOHA - Nice to see a Ukelele player here. I'm a "slack-head", sometimes referred to as a "slacker". Ki Ho'alu is my musical passion at this time. And I always wear a Fedora when playing.

It'll be in the 80s here in sunny Florida tomorrow and I have an outdoor gig doing caricatures at an antique car festival. (Really antiques - a touring show of cars 100 years and older!)

Still, I haven't been able to bring myself to wear my Panamas yet. Got one really serious one and a few others I don't have to worry about. Gonna' get a few more weeks in with my felts before it gets ungodly hot here, then it's straws all summer!

Later,
