When I saw my friend Justin rocking this amazing outfit on a beautiful afternoon in Boston, I couldn't resist snapping some pictures and chatting with him about style.
Justin is originally from New York City, and works as an entrepreneur in fashion and lifestyle. He is a truly fashion enthusiast with an authentic sense of style.

Justin and Gary, enjoying the warm weather
*Fashion Curiosities* The Boater Hat
The boater hat, often referred to as a skimmer or sailor’s straw, gradually established itself during the second half of the nineteenth century as a charming item of leisure wear for both men and women and was mostly worn during informal occasions. This famous hat, loved by some and hated by others became part of school uniform (usually boy schools in the late 20's and back in the 50's as part of the uniform of the Princeton University Band). It was adopted by musicians (Barbershop style), vaudevillian performers and appreciators of haute couture.
Cool, casual, and fashionable. The boater hats are back!
