We have probably all a romantic image in the mind of the handsome man dressed in a linen suit and straw hat, often from movies like Death in Venice, The Great Gatsby, Hipp Hipp Hurra and others.. 

All our models are inspired from originals from the late 1800 to the early 1900.
One of our models belonged to the famous painter Christian Krohg one of the legenday Skagen painters.
You are welcome to find your own linen look amongst the many models and colours we keep in stock or produce made to order. 

The Panama hat is named because those who dug the Panama Canal had this type of hat as sun protection. When "Teddy" Roosevelt inspected the Panama Canal in the early 1900s in a white linen suit and straw hat he was photographed by the world press and these pictures did the hat immensely popular worldwide.
