Wallaroo Hats vs Boardwalk Style Hats

What is the difference between Wallaroo hats and Boardwalk Style straw hats?   Keep reading to find out…and…thanks for asking!  :)    (This is the first in what will hopefully be a series of posts comparing Boardwalk Style to competitors like Wallaroo.  So…stay tuned!)

Before we begin, if you are a retailer looking to buy gorgeous wholesale sun hats, please visit Boardwalk Style’s parent company Dynamic Asia:

Boardwalk Style Hats Wholesale – from Dynamic Asia

Let’s start the post with a gorgeous straw sun hat.  Can you tell what company it is from?

wallaroo hats vs boardwalk style sun hats

Buy this sun hat wholesale 

That’s right, it’s a Boardwalk Style hat!  (Did you guess Cappelli Straworld?  Did you even read the title of this post?  :)

First, a little bit about our competitor:

Wallaroo Hat Company is a Colorado based hat company.  You might not have been able to tell by their name or logo.  Unless Wikipedia is incorrect, a “wallaroo” is actually an animal similar to a kangaroo, and so you might think Wallaroo was an Australian hat company.  Nope, it’s here in the good ‘ol USA, just like Boardwalk Style!


So, it’s a little confusing. Is Wallaroo Australian, or American? While you’re wondering if Wallaroo’s sun hats were from Colorado or Australia, or looking at Wallaroo womens hats and thinking they have a fun bouncing kangaroo on their tag, maybe they’re made here in America, be sure to remember one thing: like all major straw hat brands, their hats are made in China.

Really? Wallaroo’s hats are made in China?  Of course.  See Wallaroo’s FAQs to learn more about their company.


So what’s wrong with floppy straw hats being made in China? Iphones are made in China!

So true!  There is absolutely nothing wrong with Wallaroo’s hats being made in China – Boardwalk Style hats are also made in China!

And this is true across the entire hat industry in the United States.  It is very difficult to make straw hats and ladies sun hats in the US these days.  And it’s not just labor costs – it is difficult to find the right raw materials and manufacturing equipment as well.


And don’t forget, there are in fact some amazing hat creators in China doing excellent work.

So, of course, there’s nothing wrong with hats being made in China.  We just feel that when you put a kangaroo on your tag and boast that you are a Colorado company, that you are being not as straightforward with your customers as possible.


Here at Boardwalk Style, we want to be transparent about how our hats are made, and where they come from.  Our parent company – Dynamic Asia – imports all its hats from China, and we personally visit each and every manufacturer we work with at least three times a year.

In the future, we will post photos and video of our hats being made, to bring you into the process and witness their creation by these amazing hat manufacturers.


Boardwalk Style is located in Los Angeles, California, both because of the great weather (and beaches!) and also because the two largest ports in the US are in fact here in LA.  And so we save on shipping costs, enabling us to bring you the highest quality straw sun hats and the lowest possible price.

Of course, there are many other differences and similarities between Boardwalk Style hats and Wallaroo hats…but this is getting long!  Look for more, next time.

Until then, don’t forget your hat!

Floppy Beach Hats for 2015

Floppy beach hats for 2015 never looked so good, here at Boardwalk Style! If this is your first time stumbling upon us, we are a California based hat, handbag, and accessory company, based in sunny Los Angeles. Being based in a location with spectacular Summer weather, we definitely know a thing or two about Summer trends, as well as everyone’s favorite hat: the floppy!
The floppy hat is great for summer because it has a wide brim that covers for even more face protection. Also, the floppy waves of the brim are cute and stylish. Interested in checking out a few of our floppies? Lucky for you, we have put together a list of our top favorite floppy summer hats for Summer 2015! Scroll down!
Felt Floppy with Ribbon Band-Boardwalk Style
Floppy straw hats are made of a variety of materials, including paper, ribbon, straw and felt. This floppy is made of felt, and is among one of our most popular hats (and also one of the longest brims). This is the go-to hat for ANY season. Get the most use out of this hat, because you can wear it in the summer to block the sun, but pair it with some leggings, boots and an oversizes sweater in the Fall.
Multi-Color Blue Stripe Floppy Sun Hat-Boardwalk Style
The best beach hats are hats that make you want to go to the beach. This multi-colored blue striped floppy hat has all the shades of the ocean. White for crashing waves, turquoise for the water and dark blue for the ocean at a distance. Blue is an essential for summer.
Crisscross Weave Summer Floppy Hat-Boardwalk Style
Straw sun hats for the beach look great when there are 2 tones as well, rather than a solid hat. This crisscross weave floppy is a great alternative to the classic black floppy hat. It is available in white with black weave as well.
Summer 2015 Crusher Hat with Buckle-Dynamic Asia
This ribbon crusher hat with buckle is called a “crusher” because it folds easily in a compact size– easy for traveling. Open it up and it will still retain it’s shape. It is available in black, neutral and brown as well.
Felt Floppy with Tied Band Summer 2015-Boardwalk Style
Another favorite is this felt floppy with matching knotted band. Though it is made of felt, it is still perfect for summer, because it will protect more than some other straw styles that may possibly not be as UV protective as felt.
Ribbon Braid Floppy Hat-Boardwalk Style
This hat is made from braided ribbon, and is extremely lightweight. Stay cool with this summer hat! We also carry it in olive and light blue.
