Newt at the Royal
2259 Kalakaua Avenue, Honolulu
Confession: I am a hat snob, and after patronising Newt’s, you will be too. Tucked inside the Royal Hawaiian Hotel, this gem offers a selection of beautifully woven hats, including the famous Montecristi Panama hats. Shopping here is an experience – proprietors Lee and Jim will find your perfect hat and even show you how to style it, then share their in-depth knowledge of this dying art form.
