Panama Hats by Majesa - Snap Brim Trilby Cuenca 3/5 Black Band Unisex

This smart Cuenca 3/5 Panama Hat Trilby oozes style and comes with a black band. The Snap Brim Panama Hat has a slightly shorter brim than the Down Brim Trilby (Fedora), angled down at the front and slightly turned up at the back. Great in the sun, with ample style!

Please note this hat is slightly darker than the photo (warmer straw-coloured shade).

Qualities of Panamas

Cuenca weave - herringbone in design, using a little more straw, and marginally heavier than Brisa Panamas (few miligrammes!).

Our Genuine Panama hats are woven in Cuenca, Ecuador, where depending on the fineness of the weave, each hat will take longer for the weaver to make.

The grades or 'references' refer to the finesse of the weave – so the higher the number, the smaller the weave size, and therefore the Panama will have taken longer to make, using more straw and many more hours!

Our 'standard' Cuenca 3/5 Panama takes approximately 2-3 days to weave.

Brim approx 6-7cm / 2¾ in, Crown approx 10.5cm / 4 in.

Please note this hat is not foldable. Many sizes are available.

Looking After Your Panama Hat:

  • Avoid getting it wet or rained on, as it will lose shape.
  • To preserve, avoid crushing or scrunching the hat, as it may break natural fibres.
  • Do not fold this Panama hat.

Cleaning And Reshaping Your Panama Hat:

  • Firstly, remove any dirt with a dry cloth from the Panama hat.
  • If there are more stubborn sections, use a warm damp cloth or facial wipe to gently remove the remainder.
  • Avoid any unnecessary rubbing as this may cause damage to the natural fibres on the Panama hat.
  • Steam on a low setting to reshape a hat that may have lost some shape, then gently dry it with a hairdryer.
  • The brim can be reshaped by placing a damp cloth on the hat, and iron steaming on a low setting. The iron should never come in direct contact with the natural fibres of the Panama hat.
  • Avoid all solvents, soap, or cleaning agents.

This is a Genuine Panama Hat.

Handwoven in Ecuador.

Reference / Grading system

This is the most common method used, although it can differ among Ecuadorean suppliers. At the Panama Hat Company we use an average grade eg 3/5, ref 8/10 etc and not a specific grade number.
