Gamble & Gunn British Made Straw Boater with Stripe Grosgrain Ribbon

(1 customer review)


PLEASE NOTE: These boaters will not be in stock for 8 -12 months as we are reworking the production, meanwhile we have some beautiful Italian made boaters the Cambridge & Henley which are of a similar quality but different weave to this style. See links below.

We wanted to create a top quality British Made Straw Boater, the best that money can buy, and here it is; A truly stylish way to keep cool this summer!

For this very special British made hat we have commissioned one of Britain’s oldest firms Toye Kenning & Spencer to create our custom ribbon trim. Still run by the Toye family, the firm has grown and diversified since its foundation in 1685 however its original values are unchanged- superb craft skills, quality and service. The company holds a royal warrant from her Majesty the Queen as supplier of gold & silver laces, insignia and embroidery and was commissioned to manufacture the medal presented to serving personnel in celebration of the Queens Diamond Jubilee.

  • Crown Height is 7.5cm or 3 inch
  • Brim Width is 6cm or 2 1/4 inch
  • Made of 2 ply Coburg straw
  • Grosgrain Ribbon by Toye kenning & Spencer
  • Ribbon Colours are dark navy with a stripe contrast of sky blue & sunshine yellow
  • Real leather sweatband with gold embossing
  • Fully lined in white satin and mesh

As boaters have a shallow crown, they are worn high on the head. Therefore, it is usual to select a boater hat size at least one size smaller than you would usually wear.

    Perfect hat. Lots of compliments. Looks sharp. Traditional boaters are hard to find. Other brands aren’t proportioned as well…either the crown is too tall or the brim too narrow. I am ordering another one from Gamble and Gunn
