Panama Straw Boater / Skimmer

Just what I ordered.

Item: 001813



The gentleman's hat for the new century! Our authentic men's straw boater is the perfect hat for that turn of the century look. The boater, also known as a skimmer or sailor's straw hat, was universally popular in the late 1800's and early 1900's.

USA-made of genuine panama straw, in natural color with a traditional blue & red grosgrain ribbon. The stiffened brim has an interior wire to ensure the hat keeps its authentic shape for years of service. Hat is unlined with a sweat band inside the crown for comfort. Brim measures 2 ¼ inches, crown is 3 ½ inches high.

Available in M - 2X.

Dress up your look with our Satin Hat Bands, available in a variety of colors. Choose a color to match or complement your outfit or event!

An Authentic Hat Big Enough for My Large Head
The high price caught me off guard at first, but once I actually received the hat and got to take a look at it, I realized that its price is justified. Handmade and feels as authentic as can be for a panama hat, I was most pleased that a hat, for once, wasn't too small or constrictive for my otherwise large head. As a matter of fact, the hat is just barely slightly large, which I'm 100% okay with after a lifetime of small hats. It works well not just as an authentic period piece, it can also work as other costumes such as a CIA agent in Cuba if you so choose (as a humorous example). In short, a high-quality, handmade hat that can accommodate large heads (as long as you order the correct size).

Perfect & Timely delivery
The product and well as the service were flawless. I can’t think of anything that did not meet or exceed expectations. The Boater is first rate quality. I will be back for more items.

Good quality, sizes run small...very small
Good quality Fast delivery Order one size up, don't guess, I am a solid L but should have ordered a XL. Ordered another hat for someone else. Same issue. Quality was great but he was a M and should have bought a L....

Just what I ordered.
The product I recently purchased from you came exactly as advertised. The size is right, the price was accurate, and it arrived on time. There were no surprises, which is what I appreciate most when ordering on line.
