Vintage 1920s 30s Straw Boater Hat Mens Size Small
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a 1930s era straw boater hat, an important mens fashion accent during the early 20th century. This straw boater hat is beautifully made with thick, rigid straw. Its brim is not the typical perfectly straight structure usually seen, but rather turns slightly down at the front and up at the back. The lining is stamped “Ideal Imported”. The paper size tag is torn off, but this will fit a small sized heat. The interior dimensions of the opening are 6 1/4” by 7 1/2” and the sweatband measures 21 1/8” around, so this should fit about a size 6 3/4. The straw is in very good condition as is the wide black grosgrain ribbon and bow. I’m unsure of country of origin, but possibly made in Japan - Japan actually made very good quality straw boater hats pre-war.
This is a very nice 20s / 30s period straw boater hat, very dapper!
