Outback Panama Hat
Great looking hat, not so great quality.
I'd like to start off by saying that I LOVED the way this hat looked. I loved the style, the feel, everything about it.
This hat was a birthday present from my wife, and I couldn't have been happier.
The problems started after about a month. The front of the hat brim began to droop, then to deform, a couple months later the band began to fall off, and you could see where it had been glued on.
I paid for a high quality TB Panama hat, but I felt like I received a cheap imitation. Over the years I've come to expect much better from TB, and can't adequately express my disappointment. I will have to go elsewhere for hats in the future. For other apparel though, there's none better.

Great fun summer hat
Nice hat, had it a couple months now and appears well made and is holding up just fine.
I haven't been a hat wearer but my wife got me a nice hat for Christmas that I got in the habit of wearing, but was too hot for LV summers so I got this and am really enjoying wearing it. It's my "poker hat" and besides being fun to wear, I haven't lost since I started wearing it.
Regarding size, large is too small, this was a little big but spacers make it fit just right.

Golfing in Style
I purchased this Panama hat for my son to use while playing golf. It is a beautiful hat! You can feel the quality. The size is just slightly bigger, but that is what I needed. It's too big for my husband, but the perfect fit for my grown son. I'm so glad I bought this. It just puts you in the mood to relax.

Wonderful hat, definitely my favorite by far. It was a birthday present 8 months ago. I'm a little disappointed in the lasting quality though, and that's why it only gets 4 stars. The band is starting to come loose, and the front of the rim is starting to warp a bit. Still, greatly recommended.

High quality straw hat, great for golf.
Picked this up in Maui last year at the TB store. I wear a 7-1/2 and it was the only hat in the store that fit, some much for 'one size fits most'. If you enjoy the shade you need this hat.

Well made hat, but looks big on the head.
The hat is handsome and well made, but it does 'sit' large. The inner band has the flexibility to fit any size head, but the actual hat looks big on one's head. The box that TB sends the hat in is too small for the hat, so the brim arrives turned up. They need to ship the hat in a bigger box. I was able to return the hat at the local shop no problem.

This hat fits great
I gave this hat to my dad for Christmas. And, it looks even better on. He loved it. Made very well and very stylish.
