The Oxford Boater is a quintessential British classic and makes the perfect hat of choice for social calendar events such as Henley Royal Regatta and Wimbledon. Popularised in the 19th century, the Boater is made distinguishable by its stiff flat crown and brim, as well as being adorned by a ribbon. This is a true classic full of charm.
Material: 100% peddle straw.
Brim width: 6 cms
Crown height:: 9 cms
Trimmed with a 4.5 cm navy and red polka dot ribbon and finished with an internal soft leather sweatband.
Steam from a household kettle and a hard bristle hat brush or clean pencil rubber will help remove dust and dirt. Alternatively, use a soft nailbrush and a little soapy water. Straw hats are best stored in a hat box, away from direct sunlight.
Avoid wearing a straw hat in the rain. If it gets wet, dry using a clean, absorbent cloth or sponge.
