Panama Straw Boater / Skimmer

Skimmer hat

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 1/4 inches, crown is 3 1/2 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!

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.

A Great Gatsby Lid
I wore this boater to a 1920s - inspired charity event the Speakeasy. It was an instant hit in the photo booth that was on site to capture the feel of the partygoers at the Juice Joint. What is even more fantastic is this vintage lid will be worn this spring/summer as i hope to host several garden parties at my home. I am exquisitely happy with this product and I cannot wait to shop again at the emporium.
