Product Description

Straw Boater Hats are back. Sometimes called Straw Sailor Hat, or Skimmer Hat, this durable, high quality hard Straw Boater hat is blocked into the classic boater shape in Italy. This is the famous Straw Boater hat worn by politicians and stylish men alike after the beginning of the last century. Prominent in Vaudeville and Burlesque, the Boater Hat found its way into the movies where it was seen on the likes of Al Jolson, Fred Astaire, Gene Kelley and Maurice Chevalier. Watch for this hat at political campaigns and conventions or on your favorite Barbershop Quartet. Don't be fooled by our low price; this is the genuine article and the best available. A special flexible stitch pattern between the supple leather sweat band and the hat allows this boater to fit better on your head. Our Italian Boater Hat comes with a satin lining on the inside top and a soft leather sweatband and is made from heavy duty 4 ply Coburg straw. Great for that 4th of July fever.
