Rogers Peet was a men's clothing company founded in 1874 and the last store closed in the mid-1980s. One of their green delivery vehicles can be seen in a street scene in the 1961 film Breakfast at Tiffany's and the company's reputation for fine mens wear was so strong that the song "Marry the Man Today" from Guys and Dolls mentioned Rogers Peet as one of the finer things in life.

Why are Panama hats loved so much? Powerful figures like Churchill, Capone, and Roosevelt celebrated them. Entertainers and celebrities create fashion buzz wearing them. Why has the legacy of the Panama hat continued 300 years? Ask anyone. It's about an attitude and attitude never goes out of style.

The raw material for the famous Panama hat is the "Cardulovica Palmata" palm leaf, commonly known by the name of "Toquilla Straw". According to the legend, this hat obtained its name when Teddy Roosevelt participated in the inauguration of the Panama Canal (1913).

Perfect one of a kind and unique gift for a lucky man in your life or buy it for yourself!
