Whether looking for a gift, to pick up a unique keepsake or just seeking some protection from the enduring sun, Newt at the Royal is a great place to get something stylish and functional. The boutique specializes in authentic Panama hats for men and women. The unique craftsmanship of these hand-woven hats is considered a nearly lost art. Made from traditional toquilla straw, each hat is formed off wooden blocks and steamed to shape. Some of the classic styles include the women’s Fino and the men’s Fedora.
