Men's Hatwear 1912

---

This young man is wearing a woolen flat cap with a bill and a snap button that holds the top of the cap to the bill. These hats were quite fashionable up through the 1920s in America.

Here the young man is wearing what is called a "boater" - i.e., a straw hat with a brim, flat top, and a wide silk band around the crown. The band could be striped in some cases as part of a club designation (like a necktie). These hats were dressy and were considered sporty. They were mainly for spring and summer wear, and would not have been worn much during the fall and winter months. Men wore them with dark jackets, white flannel trousers, and sometimes two-tone shoes (brown and white, or black and white). In some English schools and universities, these hats were worn with blazers as part of a uniform or club wear (such as rowing and tennis clubs). Or men used to wear them in the summer for things like country-club outings, even golf --although men didn't wear these hats when actualy playing golf, just to and from the golf club or sporting events. Some men even wore them for business during warm weather. They were considered mainly young men's wear. These hats had class connotations. You wouldn't see them much among working-class men.
