With all the hats I collected there was not a single boater among them. It's not a style I really care for nor am I likely to wear one, and The Netherlands is not exactly a straw hat country. But I can appreciate the craftsmanship that goes into making them and recently I was able to find one in my size (and cheap). I think it was sold through Luton, England based on the insides, but I'm not sure it was actually manufactured there, based on the label. Not a high end one I think; there's no Bon Ton Ivy sweatband (which is of low quality) and the ribbon is very plain. I still needed one for the collection and now I have one.
