The Oxford Boater


The Oxford semi-bleached boater conjures up images of punting on the river. It is also at home on the coast or in the city. Its wide brim will protect you from the midday sun while looking stylishly chic in the heat. The adjustable inner band can be tightened if there is a light breeze. The Boater comes with a unique and ethical plaited horse-hair band which is removable should you wish to use your own scarf and wear it your way.
