Representing several top names including Stetson and Tommy Bahama, among others, Dorfman Pacific has every type of hat possible for boaters who prefer one-stop shopping. After one long sunny weekend out on the boat, we decided it was time to take a closer look and see what’s new in hat designs.
For over 150 years, the Stetson name has stood as a symbol of American independence, individually, integrity and strength and those qualities are reflected in its brands today. For those also looking for a new boating hat this season, the Weathered Cotton Outback is one option from Stetson we tried out. The 2 3/4-inch brim for keeping the sun off, combined with a chin strap to help keep your hat on when putting the throttle down, help make this Stetson an ideal boating hat. The SKSTH127-BRN retails for $16.
Another solid pick from Stetson that is a little more breathable is the Twill Safari khaki hat with mesh and web trim. The 2-inch brim offers good sun protection with the mesh providing a little more air circulation up top while the boat is underway. The STC188-KAKI retails for $16.50.
For those with upscale tastes who crave island living, the entire collection from Tommy Bahama seems to be based around the beach. One popular option is a unique hat made from crocheted raffia material that includes small sea shells in the front with a TB pineapple pin on the side. The 3 1/2-inch shapeable brim will keep plenty of sun away and with the elasticized sweat band the one size will fit most. The TBWL28OS-TEA has a suggested retail price of $36.
Now these are just three specific styles from a very long list of attractive-looking hats offered through Dorfman Pacific. Now is the time for you to decide which is right for you.
