A very popular hat in the late 19th and early 20th century, the boater is still a classic, sought after style. We offer the Belfry Boater made of 100% sewn wheat straw, which is lightweight, flexible and resilient. The flat brim is rigid enough to keep its shape  and the interior offers an adjustable drawstring that may be tightened for a custom fit.

(Sizes run big in this style; the medium fits like a large size.)

Great Hat, Great Value

A solid, affordable straw. Bought it knowing it might not be big enough for me so yes, handed it on to Her Ladyship. Looks smashing on her. Brim is wide enough for some sun protection; crown is high enough for her larger hat size, and a good shape with no pinch, nor is it a perfectly cylindrical porkpie shape; material is real straw, not paper, like many hats out there. If I were wearing it I would have steamed ahead with the band it came with. For Her Ladyship, I swapped the band for a floaty scarf from the project box, a nearly gauzy white material with a big bold black print in organic shapes, which we tied around the crown, tying in a big knot behind, and snipped the ends to a few inches, so not tight like a man's band, and also not hanging down like a singer-singwriter from the early 1970s. It softens the silhouette considerably, which is on the manly side. The hat is ready for social events, walking. A great classic shape for her, no assymetrical brims, no floppy drooping brim, no fancy weaving. For me, it would have worked well too, because as much as I love a classic boater/skimmer, they can look a little costume-y if one doesn't take steps to soften that impression. This hat is already there, deviating some from that very traditional boater shape that has come to look a little dressy now. This hat is a good compromise between a very pricey Panama, and a paper-"straw" hat: a traditional look and shape, but just a little more relaxed. Love it and if it were available big enough to fit me I'd get one too.
