I'll be bidding on a nice older Boater by Hudson Hats. It isn't perfect, but it is in sufficiently good condition to wear next summer until I decide to replace the leather sweatband. The black ribbon avoids the "barbershop" look while retaining the classic look of this older hat style. While I understand these fell from fashion nearly 90 years ago, they are a great summer cover. light, sturdy and of individual character, they are certainly a "one of a kind" piece of headgear. People either really appreciate these hats or despise them (there doesn't seem to be much middle ground concerning them). Any opinions or input concerning these seasonal lids?
