Signes Coburg Straw Skimmer Hat

Coburg Straw Skimmer Hat

(0 Reviews | Submit a Review)

This iconic hat - Skimmer, Boater or Sailor Straw - was summer de rigor for every well-dressed man in the western world in the early 20th Century. Find old photographs of summer scenes with large crowds of men and you'll find this hat on many (if not most) heads. Associations include barbershop quartets, WC. Fields, Buster Keaton, Coney Island, Henry Ford and his Model-T can all be seen donning a Skimmer straw hat.

The high-quality, “Real McCoy” for this hat is made from Coburg straw in Europe. Observe carefully and you'll note that the straw is affixed in plies – one ply bonded over the other. Because each ply is a sewn braid, you can readily understand why the hat is expensive. This brings me to Signes. Because of our association with this great factory, we can offer the Skimmer for about $25 less than the going price in North America.

Approx. 3 1/2" crown
Approx. 2 3/8" brim

Made of: 100% straw

Leather sweatband
Grosgrain ribbon hatband
Unlined for maximum breathability

$165.00
