Patriotic Skimmer Hats
These were such a hit!
I bought these for our annual 4th of July party last year and they were so popular then, I am back this year to order some more because everyone took them home! I gave them to the men and also used some upside down to hold candy and tattoos for the kids. I will probably order 2 sets this year because it really adds to the look of our Patriotic bash!

Used these for a historical reenactment event. They looked exactly like the picture except some did get deformed slightly during shipping - but were easy to fix.

they don't look like this
the hats I got looked more like Bowlers, not flat

Not as advertised
These are pictured as skimmers with flat tops and brims. What I got was rounded tops and brims that go downward, like a straw bucket hat. I don't like them.

The brim isn't flat as pictured, but it can be flattened by wetting it and stacking heavy cans on the brim overnight. Quite durable.

Once they changed vendors, this hat is a bucket hat and not a skimmer hat. The brim tilts downward and is not flat like the picture

Quality is good, but hats are not like the ones pictured. The tops of the hats I ordered and received are not flat, so they look more the sunhats.

Excellent quality! Other sources wanted $25+ per hat.
Only negative: the hats came in dimpled in the center causing difficulty in keeping the hat in place, but it required an easy fix...
Simply get the straw at the top of the hat wet, turn over and place a 10# can or heavy weight in the center of the hat, allow to dry and the hat will appear as pictured. We used them for a 1920's themed event.

We are producing the musical, "The Music Man", and needed lots of these types of hats for our costumes. We have virtually NO budget, so the price was great! I thought the hat rims would be stiffer, they flop a little, but other than that they're perfect!

I bought these hats for my sixth grade production of The Music Man Jr. They will look great on stage for a fraction of the cost of having to buy them individually from a costume store. Every penny counts in our music program. Thanks for helping me save money and not sacrifice quality.
