I think that the Vintage Shirt Company may also do them. Just round the corner from the Lewes Arms

There is a small hat shop, thats all they sell, in Westcliff on Sea, Essex that you can buy from and it will be delivered within a few days. If you want the old genuine Panama that you can roll up with the bag/box to put it in then they will almosr certainly have one. The man that owns the businees used to be a Dunn's manager (who remembers them) and is a fanatic about hats, he loves his business. I have used him for years, oddly it is a mens hat shop but 40% of his customers are ladies.
His telephone number is 01702 430798 and I know he is on the website but not sure of the address. Try putting in - classiccapcompany - that should bring it up for you. He is in Hamlet Court Road, Westcliff on Sea.
I'm sure you will get what you want there. Good Luck

I'd been thinking of buying one to wear when I go to Costa Rica but have been put off because they seem to have become fashionable among some of the 'young set'.

Correct address: www.classic-caps.co.uk
I've had a quick look. they have a wide range of panamas starting at £35.00 up to 59.00 it seems. Usually delivered in 2/3 days.

Clifford, if you're going to Costa Rica I can recommend La Mariposa, listed in the 1000 Places to See Before You Die travel book www.lamariposa.com

The Manatus is fantastic too www.manatuscostarica.com

And me, going to see the leather backed turtles crawl up the beach to lay their eggs. Other than that I preferred almost any other Latin American country to Costa Rica. Costa Rica is the country that wishes it was in the US.

Artful - Great hats Bailey's, very distinctive. Several times I have had strangers approach me in the street to ask where I bought them.

MC - I'll look out for that. I'm only going there because the brother-in-law moved there a few years ago and we've promised a visit.
