First Panama Day of the Year!

Discussion in 'Hats' started by Kaleponi Craig, Feb 13, 2008.

  1. 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
  2. You too eh? I've had a few days up on you though. I started wearing mine on Sunday. ;) :D
  3. You guys are going to get into trouble.:D
  4. I certainly hope they get in trouble. I had to put on my old western beater to shovel the driveway this evening. Sheesh !!!
  5. No trouble at all. I am donning it now to leave the office and cavort in the decent weather. Did I mention I hate snow? ;) :p
  6. Jealous. :p
  7. You lucky dog!!!:D
    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:

    Very nice photo - Panama jam session with Hawaii (?) shirt and RayBan...:)
  17. I'm waiting for Panama hat (and Hawaiian shirt) weather as well. Especially after yesterday's ice storm. :(

    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.

    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.

  20. Got my 50s Dobbs gray milan on today. Here's a picture: :fedora:
