Hey guys, it's time for a hat for life! I wonder about buying the Panama from Borsalino for about two years now. So, at last I decided to buy it soon, during my Italian Holiday in Milan.
Are you looking for a touch of top class? Borsalino is definitely your brand of choice. Their hats are la creme de la creme in fashionable headwear. The Panama is a timeless piece that dates back to the XVIII century. This hat has been around for ages and will forever remain a classic headwear piece.
P.S. Panama hat is the king of summer headwear although it has never been produced in Panama. It’s traditional brimmed hat of Ecuadorian origin. When Theodore Roosevelt visited the construction of the Panama Canal, he wore such a hat and greatly contributed to its spreading and popularity.
I can't forget what my Bavarian friend told me once: "Do I come and wear your traditional costume? No. So I expect the same from you. Please, don't do it. It's ridiculous."
I don't want to pretend to wearing Tracht but I couldn't resist a Country Estate Style, so I tried to do it, with a bit of irony, an Italian way. I decided to wear Moschino, which became famous for innovative, colorful, sometimes eccentric designs. In fact, Franco Moschino was highly critical of the whole fashion industry system. He didn't took his position too seriously.
P.S. Tracht is a traditional national costume in German-speaking countries. Tracht of southern Germans and Austria has inspired an entirely new fashion style characterized by the use of linen, loden and embroidery.
