Classic Gents

A staple any well-dressed gent should have in his closet, this classic straw Panama hat, with its kite-shaped crown and classic brim, finished with a chocolate band and bow is a must-have. Plus, it’s handmade in the U.S. by Amish leatherworkers in Pennsylvania.

Black Beauty

This 100 percent linen black dock hat is perfect for that indiscreet style — and a subtle bow on the band adds that extra touch. Plus, it’s unlined with smooth black sweatband and slightly flexible brim for those warmer spring days ahead.
