Hie Homburg is a men's felt hat with a lengthwise single dent in the center of the crown, and a slightly narrow upturned brim. It is usually trimmed with a grosgrain ribbon, a bow, and sometimes an attached feather.
This style got its name from its place of origin, Homburg, in western Germany.
Also known as the Skimmer, Canotier, Katie, Basher and Sennit Hat.
A Boater Hat is a stiff flat-topped short hat with small flat brim. The hat is typically trimmed with a ribbon around the base crown. The ribbon is usually a wide navy colour with a narrow red stripe down the middle. Traditionally, it was made of stiffened straw called sennit, hence the nickname, Sennit Hat. The Boater was popular in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, usually worn during the summer as sailing or boating headgear.
Today, this style remains associated with sailing and boating, and also accompanying children's school uniforms. The ribbon, in this case, often represents the school's colours.
