Cuenca New Hampton Natural

$225.00

Size

Select Size

Our most popular hat to date. The brim worn down around or snapped and rolled is a hat that works for anyone (and that’s a rarity).

Distinctive weave woven in southern Ecuador, in the Andes.

The crown is now 4” as opposed to the much higher 4 ¼” so that it appeals to all facial shapes and body types. The brim size varies between 2 1/4 to 2 1/2". Comes standard with a black 1 1/2" hatband. 
Handcrafted in our atelier in NYC.

Straw Quality

Artisan

The Artisan quality weave has anywhere from 14 to 17 “puntos” (woven strands per linear inch). It is not woven as tight but possesses more weight and durability than the other qualities do. For the wearer who likes to get the most out of their hat.

Master

The Master quality Montecristi weave has anywhere from 18 to 21 “puntos” (woven strands per linear inch). Suitable for non-strenuous occasions, it is much lighter, tighter, and precise while providing excellent sun protection.

Museum

The museum quality Montecristi boasts an incredible 22 to 32 “puntos” (woven strands per linear inch) From $750 to $3,000. Using a process that takes up to 5 months, this Panama Hat by Worth & Worth has an exquisitely light feel – perfect for relaxing by the Coast Campari and soda in hand. When straw feels like fine linen, a work of art.

Superfino

The Superfino is the highest quality weave. These Hats are truly rarer than rare. Our grade starts at 30 “puntos” and can go as high as 60 “puntos”. Montecristi Superfino are always recognizable by the trademark ridge in their centers, there remain today only a dozen weavers capable of making the finest straw hats in the World: The Montecristi Superfino. The Superfino are the lightest of all and the consistency of the weave. The “remate” (back weave) becomes almost invisible to the eye. Hold it to the light and it glows, seemingly translucent. Our Super Fino Montecristi starts at $5,000 to $25,000 for the rare treasures.

First, how would you wear your hat?

X READ TIPS

You will need to have a cloth tape measure handy and it helps if you have assistance from another person to ensure accuracy.

Do not pull the tape measure too tight or your hat will fit just as snug. Measure exactly how you like wearing your hats. Do not try to measure the inside of a hat, this never works. It’s much easier and accurate to measure your head or have assistance.

Measure Your Head

Measure for the Halo style:

X READ TIPS

With a cloth tape measure start at the center front of the forehead. Hold the tape firm, then pull around to the ear, at the angle desired above the ear. Continue under your occipital bone which is located in the back of your head, then back around following the same procedure ending at the starting point.
You will either have inches or centimeters depending on the type of tape measure used.

Taking the size tag in a hat you own that fits well, then using the Hat Size Chart above to convert the size on the tag to a measurement in inches/centimeters is another way of properly determining the size of your new Worth & Worth Hat.

X READ TIPS

There is no such thing as an overall correct fit. Whatever feels right to you. It is entirely a matter of personal preference. A tighter-fitting hat stays on better for active people, windy settings, and those who like their hats to sit high on the head. A looser-fitting hat is more comfortable, sits lower and works well when wearing for an extended period of time (over 3 hours).

Replacement Cuenca

We purchased this hat to replace a very old hat purchased from Worth and Worth perhaps 30 years ago. Pretty good record for straw. The new hat is same excellent quality weave and color and fits exactly as it should. We continue to be impressed with the quality and style of hats produced by Worth and Worth. We have been customers since mid 70's, then of the Madison Ave store. Roger

Best Hat Ever!!!

I received my Cuenca New Hampton Natural Hat late yesterday morning. I wore it through most of the afternoon and evening in intense sunshine and 90+ degree weather in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Over the years I've owned three Panama hats made by three different manufacturers. My Cuenca New Hampton is, by far, THE most comfortable and classically stylish hat of any I have ever worn. I now truly realize how accurately the Worth and Worth website describes the company's products. Kudos to Worth and Worth for protecting me from the sun and making me look in the process!
