Bahama Beach SE - Blanco - Extra Wide Brim

Panama Hat Bahama Beach Blanco

Another classic look. Another must-have style.

The crown shape is the same as my Monte Carlo – a traditional “telescope” crown.

The Adventure Brim is the same as my Kentucky Smith® SE and Mombasa SE - flat but dipping down in front and back. Same choice of Cocoa or Blanco.

The main difference is the attitude. The Bahama Beach suggests rakish angles, more than the other two crown styles. Wearing it dead level is an attitude of its own.

John Steinbeck made these observations on hat angles and attitudes:

“Kino put on his large straw hat and felt it with his hand to see that it was properly placed, not on the back or side of his head, like a rash unmarried irresponsible man, and not flat as an elder would wear it, but tilted a little forward to show aggressiveness and seriousness and vigor. There is a great deal to be seen in the tilt of a hat on a man.” from The Pearl

Angles and attitudes vary. What will yours be?

NOTE: You will see in the photos that the Extra-Wide Brims are a different shape than the Wide and Short brims. The x-wide brims in these photos are more “cupped”. The brim edges lift up a little, compared to the others, which are Adventure Brims and are flat but dip down front and back. I can iron an x-wide brim as an Adventure Brim if you wish (more maintenance on your end).
