Straw hat

Great hat just needed to attach band to hat, good weight on my head


Hi Haara, thank you for the feedback! The leather bands are designed to be removable but we've since made them a bit smaller so they're tighter. Tans x

I started off with a charlie wide brim hat and wanted to get this one for summer and I absolutely love it! I love that you can wear it with or without the leather strap and also that you can now buy other colour straps (*adds to wishlist) I can not wait to give it a real workout in Bali soon!!

Sol Straw Hat is where it’s at!

Love my hat. So comfortable yet stylish. Keeps its shape well. Great quality. And I absolutely loved the calico bag it came in! Highly recommend!


Hi Soraya, thank you so much for the great feedback! I'm so glad you love your SOL straw! Tans x

SOL hat, SOL good!

I bought the SOL straw hat as a Christmas gift for my husband. He’s super sun safe and tends to wear quite daggy hats because he wants one that will actually protect from the sun. It’s a perfect fit for him, super classic and he looks like a babe in it. I love the presentation in the cool drawstring bags which we have repurposed as beach swim bags for the kids. I only have one recommendation and it’s small, we’ve almost lost the leather band a few times because it’s not attached... so maybe either a stitch or loop or some other way to secure it would be good :) but generally it’s a total winner!


Hi Catherine, Thank you so much for the lovely review! I'm so stoked hubby looks like a babe in his hat! Love the feedback on the leather band, thank you. They are designed to be removable but I agree they are a little too loose so we have actually re-ordered the black bands to be slightly smaller. If you would like to swap your one for a smaller one please do let me know! Tans x
