Boater Hats For Men
A boater hat is a classic accessory that makes admirers turn their head. The style is known for its straight brim and flat stiff crown. Originally it derives from the Canotier won by gondoliers in Venice. The difference between the Canotier and the Boater hat lays in the trimming. While the Canotier has a long ribbon that freely hangs over the brim, the boater hat is more subtle decorated with a ribbon around the crown. The name Boater hat derives from sailing and fishermen's activity. The Boater hat became very popular in the early 19th century. Celebrities like Oscar Wilde and French Maurice Chevalier contributed to the popularity of the semi-formal Boater hat style.
