Gray Panama Hat The Panama hat, the Prince of hats as they call it, was once very popular. Though originated in Ecuador, it came to be called the panama hat because it was sold in huge amounts in the Isthmus of Panama where sales were good. These hats were mainly woven from straw, but now you can find those that are made with felt as well. While the straw hats are a must-have summer beach accessory, the felt hats are perfect anytime of the year.

The catwalk, the streets of Paris, and the red carpets have all seen their fair share of panama hats. From historic icons like Napoleon Bonaparte, Winston Churchill and King Edward VIII to modern day fashionistas like Diane Kruger, Eva Mendes and Rachel McAdams, this hat style is loved by ALL.

At Banana Republic, you will find elegant felt panama hats in beautiful colors like burgundy, navy and gray. The author Martha Sliter quoted, “A hat is a flag, a shield, a bit of armor, and the badge of femininity. A hat is the difference between wearing clothes and wearing a costume; it’s the difference between being dressed and being dressed up; it’s the difference between looking adequate and looking your best. A hat is to be stylish in, to glow under, to flirt beneath, to make all others seem jealous over, and to make all men feel masculine about. A piece of magic is a hat.”
