Woven from crocheted florentines straw, the St. Louis is a snazzy alternative to the classic Panama. The straw hat has a slightly darker colour to give it a more lived-in look and has been finished with a sleek navy grosgrain band.
Steam from a household kettle and a hard bristle hat brush or clean pencil rubber will help remove dust and dirt. Alternatively, use a soft nailbrush and a little soapy water.
Avoid wearing a Panama or straw hat in the rain. If it gets wet, dry using a clean, absorbent cloth or sponge.
Panama and straw hats are best stored in a hat box, away from direct sunlight.
