Our collection of straw hats for men will take you from a long day’s work to a breezy vacation and everywhere in between. With carefully-sourced, all-natural materials and an unparalleled attention to detail in the craftsmanship, these versatile men’s hat styles will look as good on as they feel.

A rugged classic, our mens straw cowboy hats in a rigid yet lightweight design offer an all-season hat that keeps you cool with multiple ventilation points and a removable sweat band. Meanwhile, our men’s straw boater hats with relaxed brims and our men’s straw fedora hats with wide, flat brims keep the sun out of your eyes without compromising comfort or style.

When it comes to color options, we like to honor the beautiful colors and variations in the 100% natural fibers from which we construct our straw hats for men. After hand-selecting the seagrass, toquilla palm, and golden wheat that will be used in your hat, we then cut, strip, and clean each bundle to ensure the most uniform color. We’ll bleach the fibers for our off-white and cream designs, applying a natural colored dye to produce an iconic beige or light brown sun hat.

Panama Hats Perfect for Sun

There are a lot of options out there for a straw hat for a man. The hat started as a straw farm hat, with the ancient rice hat and the classic style farmer hat being examples. Now, modern styles like men's straw fedora hats and men's straw cowboy hats are more common. However, Panama hats are some of the most popular straw hat options.

A man's Panama hat presents a sleek yet relaxed look. Panama hats for men also offer practical advantages. A straw Panama hat is quite literally a cool men's hat. A lightweight woven hat is breezy and will hold less heat than other hat options. Plus, having a big straw hat provides direct protection against the sun. Together, these factors make a Panama straw hat men's top option when going anywhere warm that still requires a stylish approach.

For this reason, many of the best men's straw sun hats are Panama hats. These are often seen at beaches or seaside resorts, where people want to look good while staying cool.

The American Hat Makers' Difference

Not all men’s straw hats are created equal. Our products are created with advantages that give them an edge over the competition, making them the best straw hats on the market.

Handmade Since 1972

Some of these advantages come from the fact that our men’s straw hat products have been handmade since 1972. This process involves using high-quality materials and assembling each hat with care.

Many cheap straw hats are made from inferior materials that break easily. This means that they tend to deteriorate when these hats are worn in the rain or simply worn at all. A straw hat for men like this will not last very long.

However, our hats are made from hand-selected, 100% natural fibers. These fibers are then cut, stripped, and cleaned to ensure a consistently high level of quality in the final product. In the end, the final product looks good while also holding up to the elements.

American Made to Last

High-quality products, like our men's straw sun hats, are built to last. This is why we use durable materials and choose to make our products in America. We believe that our made-in-America hat options are the best options out there. We also know that our customers want a lifetime of use out of their hats. This is why we offer a “Lifetime Refurbishments” option. For just $10.77, you can send your men’s straw hat back to us for repairs.

Whether the hat is misshapen or stained, we’ll fix it and send it back to you. This means the straw fedora hat or men's Panama hat you buy from us will last you for years and years. If you choose to opt for refurbishments, it has the potential to last you forever.

Straw Hats for Men Made to Last a Lifetime

The team at American Hat Makers has been crafting premium men’s sun hats, men’s outdoor hats, and the mens straw fedora for over 40 years. Many modern straw hats aren’t made from true straw. They’re made from a shellacked rice paper called “Toyo straw.” And since it’s paper, Toyo straw doesn’t hold up against the weather, like a true outdoor hat should.

That’s why we dedicate ample time to the sourcing process. As we mentioned, our men’s straw hats contain a 100% natural mix of the hardiest stalks, stems, and leaves. And it’s not just because we love natural coloring and textures. Palm trees hold up to a hurricane, and wheat stalks certainly don’t dissolve with every drizzle. These are the fibers we trust in our straw hats for men. That’s why your hat has you covered in rain, wind, and sun, just like it’s supposed to.

And, once those quality fibers have been sculpted into our men’s straw cowboy hats or other popular straw silhouettes, we add additional treatment or laminate to improve the water resistance and ensure true sun protection in up to SPF 50.

Caring for Your Men’s Wide Brim Straw Hat

We truly believe that your hat should be yours for as long as you want to use it, and then passed down to future generations for even more adventures. We’ve carefully curated the premium materials and taken the long road to be masters of our craft. But proper care and storage will ensure that craftsmanship is visible for longer.

You can use a damp cloth to gently wipe away any dust or soils from the crown or brim of your men’s straw hat. Follow the weave of the straw or palm and clean in a circular shape around both the crown and brim. Let it thoroughly air dry before storing it on a hat hook or in a hat box between adventures. Need some backup when it comes to keeping your legacy piece looking as good as the day you bought it? Just select the “Lifetime Refurbishments” option at checkout.

For just $10.77, you can send your men’s straw hat back to us for repairs. From misshapen brims to persistent stains, we’ll help restore your hat to its former glory.

Our promise is to provide men with hats that meet at the intersection of lasting durability and timeless style. American Hat Makers straw hats for men are true investment pieces, made to last much more than a season. What’s more, we proudly offer sizes that span from small hats to large hats for men with big heads, to ensure that every man can find a fit that feels like it was made for him.

Caring for Your Men's Straw Hat Additional Info

Caring for men's straw hats is different than caring for other hats. Even the sturdiest straw is a little delicate. Because of this, a straw hat needs to be treated to look its best.

When cleaning your men’s straw hat, take a moist towel and wipe the brim or crown gently. This helps remove any dirt, dust, or other material. As you do so, follow along with the weave in a round pattern. Once you are done, let it air dry thoroughly.

After cleaning or using your hat, make sure to store it safely. Hang the hat on a hook or put it in a sturdy container or hat box. This will prevent it from being accidentally crushed or damaged in some other way.

​​Is a Straw Hat Good for Sun Protection?

Any hat with a wide brim will offer some sun protection. However, our wide-brim straw hat men’s options provide even more sun protection.

As our hats are assembled, we treat or laminate them at the very end of the process. This helps ensure sun protection of up to SPF 50. Because of this, our straw sun hat men's options and straw beach hats men’s options provide even more protection than usual.

How Do Men Choose Straw Hats?

The search for options starts by finding a man's hat shop. Many people simply search “straw hat near me” or “straw hats near me” to get ideas. However, it is important to ensure the shop you go with is a quality shop, like American Hat Makers. Otherwise, you will end up with an inferior product.

From there, it is a matter of picking the right hat to suit your needs. If you need farmer hats, then a farmer straw hat is a good choice. If you need something stylish, straw fedora hat men's or Panama straw hat men's options are worth looking into.

What Kind of Straw Hats Are in Style?

Men's straw hat styles are varied. However, the two most popular include Panama hat men's options and straw fedora men's options.

What Is the Difference between a Fedora and a Panama Hat?

A fedora and a Panama hat are two top straw hats for men styles. However, they are extremely similar to each other, so much so that many people don’t know the differences between them. The most significant difference is that a Panama hat is always made from straw, while a fedora is often made of another material. Despite this being a major difference, some fedoras are made from straw.

However, there are still differences between a Panama hat and a straw fedora. Typically, the brim and the band surrounding the hats will be different. A Panama hat will always have a black band, while a fedora will not.

What Is the Cuban Hat Called?

There are many different Cuban hat styles out there. Because of this, Cuban hats fall under a range of different definitions. However, most are tied together by the fact that they are made from straw and have a wide brim that encircles the hat.
