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.

Historical Boater
This straw boater is perfect for a museum display accompanying Mark Twain's book Life on the Mississippi. At the Mark Twain Birthplace State Historic Site in Florida, Missouri, we do a rotating display of his first editions to protect them from light and wear. Mark Twain wore a straw boater similar to this one when he worked as a cub pilot (learning the ropes) on steamboats on the Mississippi River.

Snappy hat!
The beauty replaced a similar hat that belonged to my late father-in-law. It arrived on time and well-packed. The hat appears to be made well and should give me good service.

Amazing product for the price! I wore to a white party on a yacht and I mean I shut it down. The hat looked so amazing! The quality is top notch for the money. Very stiff, and sturdy. I would definitely buy another. Everybody was asking where I got it from, I really didn't want to spill the beans, but I told everyone! Great product! great Price! super Fast Shipping!

Well made!
Hat was purchased on a Friday and reveied on Monday! Extremely fast shipping, very well made hat. I measured my head just as they said to, but the large is a tad too big. Very happy with the product though

Hit at the Party!
Recently, my company held a "Roaring 20s", Great Gatsby themed party. The first thing I thought was that I had to get a boater hat so I went to Google of course lol! Every one would be wearing their best and I wanted to stand out. I did! I expected to see maybe 1 or 2 other boaters, but mine was the only one! I got so many compliments on it, and some of the other guys even asked where I got it, because they looked everywhere but couldn't find one. I told them about Gentleman's Emporium. Thanks again for a great product!

Great Dixieland Hat
My husband plays in a dixieland band and was thrilled with this beautiful hat! He has an XL head and the XL seems to be the right size. The ribbon band is dapper and the inner-rim padding is very comfortable. We're hoping it "wears in" a bit to a more oval head shape. We would recommend this hat from Historical Emporium to anyone and everyone!
