I have worn this Dobbs Kingston Shangtun Panama hat for years. I replace it every few years after I sweat through the band or someone "borrows" it for too long because it is so good looking. Being in Texas, I appreciate the light weight of the Panama and the style. This hat is good to go, whether you are golfing, fishing, walking the stockyards or having a few extra beverages on the riverwalk. I just replace the northerner brown ribbon band with something more appropriate, like a Guatemalan belt. Great service from One 2 mini Ranch. They delivered the product quicker than Amazon and in better condition. I'll trade with them again.
