Lamson Hubbard Genuine Panama - The Colonel
Tight fine weave
5 inch crown
Dimensional Brim 3 1/4 front - 3 inch sides

I had not heard of this brand Lamson Hubbard… but from the sellers photos it appeared to be a really fine weave. It has not disappointed in that regard. In person the weave is very tight and small appears almost like canvas. I find interesting that in photos the weaves do not look quite as tight as they do in person. I think I will compare the weave on this on and my Herbert Johnson Optimo. Between the liner tip and Not much sun today holding up to the sun would not provide much of an effect. The 3 1/4 by 3 inch brim seems to prefer an up brim…. But with some coaxing it will stay down sometimes. I really love the pug. Under the sweat and oilskin sweat liner revealed a made in Ecuador stamp.. some pencil notations and union tag. There is an area of discoloration on the back underside of the brim and I managed to dislodge the sweat bow and size tag while I was fiddling around. Will probably reattach. All and all…. Loving my new/old Colonel Panama.

The newly oiled nubuck safari got its first outing in the rain today. Only fairly light drizzle to be fair, but it kept the specs clear. It looks like water marks will still show on this, but that'll just add to the "weathered" look. It is a "working" hat after all.

My favorite hats are safari type and I love the hats in Out Of Africa so ordered Akubra territory in khaki cut 1/2” off the brim, and then made this puggaree from a white textured fabric. I will probably add 4 vents on top. The puggaree came out exactly how I wanted it almost leathery and variated.
