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


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. 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!!


  2. 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.


  3. 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.


  4. 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.


  5. 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.

  6. 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).


  7. Top shelf , pleased with the hat , the quality , fit and comfort plus the best service , these folks know what they’re doing and they do it well right down to the mini-moon , thanks Colonel and all your folks too!


  8. 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!


  9. 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)!

  10. 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.

  14. We took a road trip to Lynnville because of this hat and we were glad we did. My husband loves this hat. The hat fit is true to size.


  15. 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

  16. 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.

  17. 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


  18. 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


  19. 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.


  20. 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!

  21. 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.


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


  23. 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.


  24. 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.


  25. 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.
