The Perfect Hat for Summer!
Also known as a basher, cady, canotier, or sennit hat, the boater hat for men was originally a formal summer hat worn by both men and women that became popular during the end of the 19th century. While they were originally worn for sailing, you’ll most often see a boater hat used as a uniform accessory for barbershop quartets or school attire in the UK and Australia.
Our men’s boater hats are perfect for formal evenings on the pier or a day spent boating on the lake. They elevate your outfit and add a little pizazz to your casual sportswear.
Styles and Selection
Basher hats traditionally come in two types: the straw hat and the felt hat. A piece made with straw materials is meant for warmer summer weather, while the felt materials are a perfect pair for warm wool suits.
At Hats.com, you’ll find Panama straw hats, paper straw hats, and 100% wool felt hats. We also carry designs with flat and telescope tops as well as flat, raw edge, and wide brim styles. Additional embellishments — like buckles, zippers, and paint splatters — take the traditional ribbon around the crown to the next level.
