This hat looks great, fits great. And it’s one of our best values in a hand-woven Panama hat.

The Panador™ Classic Gambler is just plain cool — it’s cool comfort and cool fashion, and it is among our most popular Panama hat styles.

The Panador Classic Panama Hat

Our Classic collection is comprised of the Panama hats that made Panador famous. If you are looking for a fantastic Panama hat embodying the classic elegance and expert-construction for which Panamas are known, the Classic Gambler will be just the ticket. We are seriously excited about this collection, and we think you should be too.

The value packed into these Panama hats is incredible; each Classic Panama hat has a remarkably fine weave for the price and has been finished impeccably. Take a minute to zoom in on the images, and you'll realize that this is not your average Panama hat. The hat used for our photography was of a consistent quality with all of the hats in the collection; they all look that good!

The Gambler Style

The Gambler Panama hat found its beginnings with Spanish nobility as stylish protection against the heat and sun. That's why it's sometimes called the Plantation Panama hat. Later on, it became synonymous with 19th century high-rolling riverboat gamblers.

Today, it's one of the most popular Panama hats. The Gambler is our widest brimmed Panama hat and as such provides shade for those with sensitive eyes. It's still the perfect hat when visiting the riverboat casinos, or playing the ponies, or relaxing on the links.

The Panador Promise

Take a look at our Panama hats and you'll immediately see the difference. Our photos have not been doctored; each Panama hat feels just as good as it looks. So go ahead, order one today. We stand behind these magnificent straw hats, and in the unlikely event that you don't love your purchase, we'll refund or exchange it guaranteed.
