The traditional straw boater is the quintessential British summer hat, ideal for punting, boating or other watery pursuits. The classic boater is also known as the boatman, boater or skimmer (as it can be skimmed like a stone across a lake). This one comes with a black band. Olney's traditional straw boaters are made the old fashioned way from 100% sennit straw. The brim width can vary slightly, this depends on the individual maker of the shell.
