Description

Halpern Panama Fedora from Bailey of Hollywood is a classic Panama hat that is must-have warm weather attire. Featuring a classic 4 1/2″ grad crown and 2 1/2″ snap brim designed to bring you many years of sun protection. The Halpern is also accented with a two-tone color-blocked Japanese grosgrain band and finely woven sweatband.

A genuine Panama hat is always woven with straw from the toquilla palm grown in Ecuador. Once the toquilla straw is prepared, master craftsmen weave the straw to create the body of the hat. The weaving process can take days to months depending on the quality and fineness of the weave. 

For the Halpern, the Brisa weaving method was utilized. The Brisa weave is made by crisscrossing the straw to create diamond squares throughout the entire hat. This method also allows the weaver to use a finer and thinner straw making the hat appear more polished and lighter.

After the Halpern Panama fedora body is woven in Ecuador, it is sent to the Bollman Hat Company in Adamstown, PA to be finished by their expert craftsmen. Panamas can be worn casually on tropical vacations and beaches or formally with a linen or seersucker suit.

BAILEY OF HOLLYWOOD

In 1922, George S. Bailey founded the Bailey Hat Company in Los Angeles, California. He was an original participant in understanding Hollywood’s leading men as global arbiters of taste and style and dedicated his life to providing them with fine quality hats and great, luxurious styling. The American West was booming, and Los Angeles was leading the charge. A population explosion was underway. He catered directly to the needs of the “New West” by outfitting southern California ranchers, businessman, oil tycoons and movie stars with the “best hat possible”. With celebrities such as Humphrey Bogart, Cary Grant and Gary Cooper wearing Bailey, it cemented his reputation as Hollywood’s premiere milliner. In modern day, many of Bailey’s current offerings still use the same blocks as they did when originally designed over 90 years ago.
