    I can not say anything but good about Panama Bobs Straws. I am fortunate to have a few and here they are.

    This is a modern Stetson and is working out fine as yard hat.

    Thanks I was uncertain about a white hat for myself but I think it looks good.

    I have since put a different ribbon on this hat, a Borsalino.

    Nice lid Aaron. I have been wearing Shantung westerns for decades. I picked up a Guatemalan palm 2 years ago, it is very durable, but quite a bit heavier than other straws that I have had.


    I like the Boso Dean, looks coooooool

    Ok what is the difference between a straw hat and a Shantung hat?

    There are different types of material used in making "straw" hats. Shantung is generally used for western hats but sometimes you find it used on fedoras.
