I purchased this hat for my beau to "top off" his Skipper costume. He will make a perfect Skipper at the Gilligan's Island bday party I am hosting for him here on Little Hickory Island in Naples, FL. Because I am a stickler for details, I was pleased to find this hat's motif matched the one on the well-known show. Too bad it was not offered in black since Skipper wore an all black version. West Marine offers a handsome all black version made of lightweight wool but it did not have the buoy-anchor motif. I was drawn to this store because the staff was very friendly on the phone as I confirmed the hats availability in its Bonita Springs, Naples and Fort Myers locations. If you are seeking a gentleman's hat, this is not the one. Get the black wool one for real occasions! It is handsome but looks hot for South West FL.
