The Deadman hat is inspired by the classic fedoras worn by Al Capone and the Chicago mobsters of the 1930s, reincarnated here in an exaggerated proportion. Named after the hand of cards ‘dead man’s hand’ that ‘Wild Bill’ Hickock held at the time of his assassination – two pairs, aces and eights.
Each hat has an interchangeable internal padded hat band to accommodate a range of head sizes. To ensure our oversized hat styles fit perfectly to your head shape, please select your desired size from the drop down menu.
Offered here in a Classic Panama with a Black Petersham Band.
Panama hats are hand woven in Ecuador by the light of the moon, or when the sky is overcast; this is when the air is the most suitable for working with the straw as it is more damp than in the day.
It can take up to 2 days for each hood to be produced with a technique that has been passed down from generation to generation, the handmade nature of this makes every hood unique. We have then taken these hoods and blocked them into our signature Jago shapes.
Due to the size of this hat we have had an extra-large hood woven just for us. This finest quality Panama has a silky, creamy smooth texture can take up to twice as long to weave as a normal hood would.
Blocked and finished in Luton, England.
