No. 2 Lynnville Panama Hat

Available in Natural (Light Cream) or Khaki color.

There’s a certain comfort in a favorite hat… kind of like an old friend who keeps showing up season after season. A good hat shades you in the summer and keeps you warm in the winter.

No. 2 Lynnville Panama Hat features brass eyelets and an inside “stash” band to conceal a little “traveling” money as well as a place to sign your name. That way you won’t go home with the wrong hat. Panama hat bodies are hand woven in Ecuador, and hat models are made in the USA. 3″ brim. Leather band.

Hat body receives a special Teflon® coating that makes it oil and water repellent. “The Uncrushable” insert inside the hat protects against cracking caused by normal wear and tear.

Khaki or Natural color.

Available in sizes S, M, L, XL

“I’m a ‘hat man’ of long standing. As a boy, I looked forward to getting old enough to wear a hat. I’ve worn one since that day,” -Colonel

HAT SIZE SCALE

Hat size is based on the circumference of the head where the hat brim sits. If you measure between sizes, we suggest ordering the larger size hat.

Small – Hat Size 6 7/8 inches – 7 inches, Circumference 21 1/2 inches to 21 3/4 inches

Medium – Hat Size 7 1/8 – 7 1/4, Circumference 22 1/4 inches to 22 1/2 inches

Large– Hat Size 7 3/8 – 7 1/2, Circumference 23 inches to 23 1/2 inches

XLarge – Hat Size 7 5/8 – 7 3/4, Circumference 23 7/8 inches to 24 1/4 inches

THE PROPER WAY TO PUT ON AND REMOVE YOUR HAT: Even though it seems the natural thing to do, putting your hat on or removing it by “pinching” it at the crown is a very bad idea. Not only will the oils in your skin stain your hat, this repeated action over time will break down the fibers and seriously damage your hat. The proper way to put on or remove your hat is by the brim. Take the Colonel’s advice, and your hat will be your best friend for a very long time.

  1. Love these hats. Stylish but great for working outdoors. I have 2 and the oldest was bought 18 years ago and is still great looking.

  2. Really great quality! I wear a 7 and I bought the small. Had to stretch it a little.
    Proud to wear a hat this sharp!

  3. Awesome hat. I have a lot of low end hats but this is the first high quality hat ive ever owned. Its amazing the difference. Love it!

  4. After much deliberation, I landed on a decision to purchase the khaki version of the No. 2 Lynnville Panama hat for an upcoming vacation which includes a cruise. I wanted a high quality hat that justified the price and I was absolutely not disappointed! The sizing was perfect and the inherent quality was obvious. Hey, may decide to go with the Natural color one soon! Way to go, Colonel! (Thanks for the Moon pie, brought back good memories!)

  5. I bought the white Panama Hat but my size fell between two ranges. I called Charlene and she told me the best way to order was call Joyce and she would set me up with the correct size hat and a size adjuster in case it was too big. No need, the fit is PERFECT. The look is timeless. Sun protection for me is critical and this is the perfect hat. Great products (I have many) and the best service of any company.

  6. Didn’t have to wait long to receive my hat. It appears to be very well made and even though the size medium is a little snug, it looks great.
    Thanks Colonel.

    P.S. Love the extras and the especially the Moon Pie.

  7. This is my third Panama hat from Littleton, so I must be pretty satisfied. I have a bunch of hats, but none have been nearly as nice as these. I’m still wearing the first one I got years ago as a work hat, patched with masking tape. I can’t seem to give them up.

  8. Just received my Panama hat and found the quality to be TOP SHELF everything plus what I expected from Col. Littleton. This is certainly a step up from the other hats I was looking at, the fit (a medium) is spot on for me, just a little tight which should be perfect to hold in place while boating or in a strong wind. This will be my new go to hat for sure.

  9. Awesome hat! Fits perfectly and I loved all of the Colonel’s musings and advice that were included. Made me feel like I’m a part of the company and culture you are creating (moving forward into the future)! Thank you!

  10. I am in Ukraine (outside of the States)…Thank you for great service, great looking, fitting, and easy to ware hat! Love the hat band and the look is just great. The brim is just right being the 3″ size.
    The hat was boxed and quality of box is an excellent condition. Without a doubt this will be worn with pride. Thank you! You already have one more very positive and loyal customer 😉

  11. WOW what a hat and what great service. I am outside of the States and had some very great help from the service department!! Thank you again!! Now to the great looking, fitting, and easy to ware hat!! Love the hat band and the look is just great. The brim is just right being the 3″ size. You can tell the pride and care Col Littleton’s people and company are by the way the hat was boxed and quality of box it was shipped with. Without a doubt this will be worn with pride. Again thank you to the service department and the ease in which you worked with me.

  12. I was looking for a good straw Panama hat. I chose to search by high price to low. I found Col. L. at the upper end price range. They should be. I understand the more expensive is not always the better product. But, the Col. Littleton, Lynnville Panama Hat is a superior product. A hat,especially a straw hat must be good or it quickly falls apart. I wear my Littleton hat most days. It keeps your body temp even in the heat, keeps the sun and glare out of your eyes. Frankly I started wearing hats in both Summer and Winter, I do not understand how hats went out of fashion, especially in the East where I live. I now feel naked, unprepared and vulnerable if I do not have the right hat for the weather and activity. I have yet to purchase the Col. L. felt hat,but it is on my list. When you receive your hat you also receive a few little items that at the time I did not fully appreciate. For example, they included in my package a leather strip. This leather strip is the greatest item. Your head swells and shrinks throughout the seasons. Tonight I just wrote to Col. L. and ,though I was buying a leather bracelet to have engraved for a Memorial , I requested if they sell the leather strips separately. I nearly discarded the strip,but it was such a fine piece of leather my instinct told me to keep it. They also included a nice leather piece which is next to my bed ,as I always have a drink when I get in bed and the leather from Colonel Littleton is of such high quality the drink rest, is still there and it does not fall apart. That is the real message I can convey. Every detail is thought through by this company. Anyone who questions weather America can make the finest products needs to buy something from this company. Is it expensive, perhaps it is at first but a good hat properly maintained should last decades. My Panama hat is the strongest hat of its type I have ever seen. Every other Panama type hat looks and is cheaply made when held next to the Col littleton hat.
    I know someone else who bought a briefcase type piece. I have a good briefcase but almost wish I could justify buying another. The leather products are superior. These are generational items. If properly cared for the leather will outlast any of us. If you want to pay for initials feel free ,if you want to spend just as much maybe more but own the very Best Buy here, I seldom spend my time writing testimonials. My time is too valuable and I am too private to put my name on something I do not produce. There are exceptions to every rule. Colonel Littleton’s leather products rival the finest from Asprey or Godard or Hermes. You know these names and Hermes does make fine things, but they are fully priced and make the Colonel seem reasonable. Of course we are limiting the discussion to the most elite and expensive leather Makers in the world. But few know of Colonel Littleton, everyone else who can afford the name products likely is not familiar with the Colonel Littleton leather line. Yes these are expensive items. They will last lifetimes and retain value, if maintained, like anything else of quality for fifty to one hundred years, I can say no more . Get over the price if you can and be a big boy and buy yourself or your wife or your family the finest, No no one will know you spent $1,000 on a duffel bag ,do you want them to? I buy quality or I wait. Wait ,save buy the best, I own two saddles,one I traded for thirty five years ago and it was at least twenty five years old then. It was a Crosby and I do have a back up saddle ,Crosby and it was purchased new and it cost over $1,800 years ago, The price per ride is cheap same with the Colonel. No this is not a store for everyone, but who sends the most on a Panama Hat as everyone thinks they are disposable. Yes if you buy a cheap Panama Hat it is disposable. Buy the Colonel’s and maintain it and you will never need a second. I live buying fine things and maintaining them. If your lazy, poor or into disposable goods this is not the place for you. If you are into having that which you need and prefer owning the Best Buy anything sold here. The leather products and the hats are certainly no brainers. I bought a leather bracelet tonight and I do not wear bracelets. My father beat me and broke my skull against a stone wall when I showed up at a barbecue upon returning from College. I was wearing some stupid outfit and he threw me up against the side of our house. Yes, I left bleeding from my head. I also never took my dress for granted when I was invited to someone else’s home. I was 19 and my Father believed at 18 you were on your own ,he gave me a single check each year to pay tuition and room and board and everything else, It was a large check, in 1978 I received $40,000 a year. But, in return I was expected to be at the top of every class I took and I was. He died and so did my son. But, I now beat in sad, lonely and tough. If this resonates with any reader then your a Colonel Littleton man. If not it is something you must decide yourself. I cannot relate to the weak yuppy who forgets that being tough is a life long pursuit.

  14. I just got this hat, but I already love it. It was a little big but in the box there’s a piece of leather to make it the correct size. Thank you so much.

  15. Great experience doing business with your company. First quality Panama Hat that I’ll enjoy for a long time. My “noggin” doesn’t have the natural protection it once did, so I predict this hat will become a good friend. Lastly, as a customer, I really appreciate the special way I was treated.

  17. My son and namesake chose the Colonel’s Hat to help give me a real hat after 90 years.
    Now I feel more like 75 and hope to look it.
    Thank you all for keeping the world real!
    We hope to come see you and Jack Daniels and College of the South again in those great mountains!

  18. This hat hits all the right marks. Well made, high-quality materials, and good looking to boot! I initially ordered a Large but exchanged it for an XL with the help of Colonel’s awesome staff. Shipping on both deliveries was extremely fast and the refund for the first item almost immediate (after they got it back). I’d recommend ordering up if you’re deciding between sizes. Overall I’m quite impressed with the fit and finish of the hat and the overall buying experience. I’ve already gotten three compliments after less than a week of wear. Can’t wait to see all the places this hat takes me. Thanks, Colonel!!

  19. I was a bit nervous to order a hat online. No need to worry. Well made, well packaged. Perfect fit. His new favorite hat for sunny California days.

  20. We came into the store and was amazed at the quanity and quality of leather goods that were displayed. We had already looked at video’s and researched the Panama Hat online. He was trying on the hats when the nicest sales person came and helped us. He is very difficult to find a hat to fit exactly snug due to having a small head. She then suggested a hat sizer that made it fit snugly and perfectly. She also took the time to explain where the materials were weaved and the care it took for making the hat. Only the best material. We are so pleased with the look and feel of the hat.

  21. Very pleased with the hat. I played golf in one for many years and finally wore it out.
    Looking forward to wearing the new one for many rounds of golf.
    Thanks Colonel Littleton for a quality product, made in the USA and for a reasonable price.

  22. I’ve owned many hats in my lifetime, the quality of this hat matches up to the best quality hats I have owned. This is my second purchase from this company and expect to be a long time customer. I appreciate the leather on the inside to put my name inside. It fits well, looks stylish, and I expect to get a lot of wear out of this purchase.

  23. I’m impressed with the high quality of this hat for the money. I get complements on it all the time. The features it has makes it stand out. I gave it 4 stars because it ran a little big(not much though).

  25. Happiness is a hat that fits, especially when it’s a gift! I enjoy Colonel Littleton’s stuff and will probably order more. 4 stars until I see how well the hat lasts!

  26. This is one fantastic hat! It’s very well made and lightweight (especially appreciated in the steamy summer months!). The fit is great as well – and all for a very reasonable price. Congratulations on a quality product, it’s nice to see some people still know how to do it. I’ll be back (something tells me there’s a No. 2 hat in my future)!

  27. I ordered this hat (through Amazon) in a small and found it to be a bit small. Reordered the medium and it is perfect. I REALLY like the hat. As with all of Col. Littleton products it is unique, classy and of highest quality.

    The Moon Pies are an added plus.

  28. Was just gifted the Panama hat by my daughters. Always loved the macaroni picture frames, but the adult daughter gifts are pretty good too. Excellent quality and a “smart” look. Looking forward to hot summer days being shaded by this gem. Good work Colonel!

  32. Hat arrived yesterday. Took it for a spin on the deck last night with a glass of wine. Love it. My dad always wore a hat with more than one for each season. Need to start thinking about one for the cool weather. Thanks

  33. Just got my hat today. The delivery service was less than gentle with the box, but the Colonel’s crew packed it very well. The hat looks great and fits well. Looking forward to wearing it for a long time.

  34. My first item that I have ever purchased from the Colonel. Was purchased on Saturday and was worn for the first time the next day to my worship service. Also drove my 42 Chevy truck that same day for the first time. The number of compliments are way to many to mention. A wonderful purchase on my part. Thank you Colonel for the marvelous merchandise

  35. I purchased a hat based on what I recalled the military cap size I used to wear. The hat arrived perfectly but I misjudged the size of my noggin! No worries… I shipped it back and now have a GREAT hat that I look forward to wearing while at my cabin. Besides all this I have now acquired a taste for moon pies!
    Thank much Col. I salute you sir! Yours truly, SSGT. Purdy USAF

  36. My wife and 3 daughters bought this hat for me a couple of Christmas’ ago and I loved it so much they bought the #2 Backroad Fur Felt hat! The panama fits like a dream and looks fantastic. I added a couple of tail feathers from my rooster in the brass eyelets and I’m the best dressed man this side of the Mason-Dixon line.

  37. Just received this hat and took it to sunny (and warm) FLA for a getaway. The hat is just fantastic….well made, and very light to wear in the heat. Bonus…the wife liked it! Shipping was lightning fast, and top shelf as always. Colonel Littleton is always a pleasure to purchase from!

  38. My wife gave me this hat for Christmas. As it was a surprise and she guessed on my hat size, the medium was a tad to small. The staff at Col Littleton was great and I ordered a large so that I could compare both hats. My head measures at 22-3/4 and the large ended up being a better fit. I love the quality and feel of my new hat.

  39. Ordered for my husband for Christmas – its wonderful.

  40. I bought this hat as my summer pool hat. It is also an excellent summer dress hat. The liner is very absorbent, breaths well and the leather band is color fast. I have had it for three summers now and it still looks great.

  41. Purchased the Lynnville Panama Hat to complete my Spring/Summer wardrobe. My father always said that a man is never fully dressed without fine shoes and a perfect hat. This hat is outstanding and the quality is remarkable. Received the hat within three days and fits like a dream.

  42. Enjoying my second Lynnville Panama in spring and summer and my first fur felt in fall and winter. Each gives added protection to that area where the hairline used to recede but has now become practically non-existent. When I ordered the wrong size on the Panama, the customer service could not have been more responsive in getting me into the right specs.

Our Story

We are committed to producing quality, handcrafted products that showcase our time-honored standards of excellence and deep respect for the Americana tradition. Col. Littleton products go through rigorous testing and numerous quality inspections before being shipped to our customers. Should you receive a Col. Littleton product that is defective in materials or workmanship, you can count on us to make it right. Our guarantee is limited to the cost of the product itself. It also does not cover normal wear and tear. We feel if you just plain “wore it out,” you got your money’s worth. Also, we cannot be responsible for an item which has suffered through alteration, damage due to improper cleaning, improper use, mishandling or accident. If we made a mistake in personalizing your product or if the product is defective in materials or workmanship, of course we’ll replace it. Otherwise, personalized products are not returnable.

Leather is a passion for me. There are more kinds of leather and leather processing out there than you can shake a stick at. You can mold leather into just about any shape or form. You can make every hide look just alike. You can dye it green, blue or even pink. You can apply a finish, coat it, spray it or make it look slick and shiny. That’s not what we’re about at Col. Littleton. To me the beauty is in the naturalness of the leather. People always comment to me about the special “feel” of our leather and how it becomes even more beautiful after it has some wear on it. It’s all about our leather process. When you buy Col. Littleton leather goods, you’re buying, for the most part, full-grain American vegetable-tanned steer hide that has received a minimum of alteration. We don’t apply a finish to hide character markings. The way I see it, every marking tells a story and covering them robs the piece of its life and character.

I see a real resurgence in the country today for products made in America. Our focus is to design and create products that speak to the time-honored traditions that have made this country great such as handmade craftsmanship, authentic rich leathers and quality workmanship. There’s a nostalgic feel about the products we make . . . most of them could have been made 100 years ago and many are made using turn-of-the-20th-century methodology and machinery. Our products are true Americana; forged as our forefathers intended by people who care and take pride in making a beautiful product.
