No. 2 Lynnville Panama Hat
NEW: Now available in Natural color, as well as our popular 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 in Khaki 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

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.
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.
