Just In: Brookline Sun Hats



It’s feeling a lot like Christmas around here these days… with packages arriving left and right containing new products for the 2015 Physician Endorsed Sun Hat Collection!  We're excited to introduce you to these new products... let's get the introductions started with Brookline!


Brookline is a fantastic new sun hat.  It effortlessly blends casual and classy, resulting in one fine-looking, comfortable chapeau.  Brookline is made of 100% cotton, so you know it will be soft and breathable.  While its shape is that of a bucket hat, its lines are more structured and sophisticated than we typically find in that silhouette.  Adding a touch more refinement is the chic belt trim with its elegant gold buckle.  The two color options, black with white trim or white with black trim are simply classic; they’ll coordinate well with most any wardrobe.


Brookline is packable, and will be a wonderful companion on any voyage, from a tropical cruise to exploring Europe’s cities.  Its 4” brim and UPF 50+ sun protection will shield your face from suns’ harmful rays.  Brookline is one great package: smart, stylish and ready for adventure.



Check out Brookline and our other new arrivals today!

Style: Fedoras for Fall

Fedoras for Fall



Our love of fedoras is no secret.  They’re cute, sassy and just plain fun!  And we’re not alone in our adoration: judging by the amount of press our beloved Jackie G and Sammy D sun hats have gotten recently, fedoras are on fire this year!

As we move into Fall, fedoras are coming along for the ride!  Fedoras are an ideal shape for Autumn; it’s quite structured, making it a perfect complement to Fall’s more tailored profiles.  Here are just a few of the wonderful fedoras in our collection of sun hats.  Some are old favorites, and some are brand new! 

Avanti is a newcomer to our fedora lineup.  The rich, plum color is just right for Fall, and the straw construction keeps it lightweight and comfortable.  A 3” brim offers great sun protection, and this hat is packable!  $37.50 by Physician Endorsed.

Sammy D is an old favorite, but look at its new color!  This natural/olive green color combo is spot on for Fall.  Those lively stripes are charming as ever, and the mellow color will meld with your Autumn fashions.  $35 by Physician Endorsed.

Savannah is an elegant, wide-brimmed fedora made of fine Toyo straw.  The 4.5” brim gives it a sophisticated air, and the classy ribbon trim utterly polishes it off.  $55 by Profile by Gottex.

Rich Pitch is another dear old friend of ours, and the Navy/Tweed and Black/Tweed color combos are just so right for this time of year.  The pairing of the tweed texture and the elegant ribbon trim is pure class.  For a polished Fall look, this fedora is a wonderful choice.  $40 by Physician Endorsed.

Estancia is ready for round-up!  This new addition is fun and versatile.  The memory wire in the brim lets you style the brim down, in a classic fedora shape, or up as western hat.  In tan or black, this western-style fedora will bring a fun cowboy flavor to your Fall.  $40 by Physician Endorsed.

Cypress is another recent arrival.  In warm browns and tans, this fedora will fit in perfectly with your Fall ensemble.  With 50+ UPF sun protection and a 3” brim, this will be a favorite.  $40 by Physician Endorsed.


So choose a fedora that fits your Fall style!  Not only will you be rocking a delightful trend, but you’ll also be giving yourself some great sun protection.

Beach of the Week: Railay Beach, Thailand




We’re heading somewhere really exotic today: Railay Beach, Thailand.  You know a place is special when it’s accessible only by boat.  After taking a ride on a charming long tail boat, you’ll arrive at breathtaking Railay Beach.  Towering, limestone cliffs, covered in deep green vegetation surround you, broken by the deep blue-green water and white sand beach.  If you’re feeling adventurous, there are several cliff climbing and cave exploring opportunities.  If relaxing is your game, grab a patch of beach and enjoy the view.  When you need a break from that, watch the monkeys that play nearby, or search out some food, beverages and accommodations: all within arm’s reach.  Be sure to witness the glorious sunset … and if you’re lucky, the sunrise too. 

What’s your favorite exotic getaway?


From exotic getaways to backyard gardening, from tropical cruises to weekend soccer tournaments, SolEscapes has what you need to stay sun safe!
