This is an advertisement by D. A. Bruce from the Charlottetown Examiner, September 10th, 1907. Men's hats could usually be bought at the general store and different types were worn when you were going out somewhere like a wedding or a business meeting. Hats had a brim curved slightly on the sides. Silk hat bands with metal buckles are usually around the top of the hat. There was a silk lining around the brim edge.
The first tophats were made by Lincoln Bennett. Boys' hats were available in navy blue and used to cost about 98 cents each. Children could also get peanut straw hats for 25 cents, and you could only get sizes 6 and 7. There were also straw-shaped sailors hats with a ribbon going around the brim. These hats used to cost from $1.00 to $1.50.
PARO, Examiner, 10 Sep 1907, pg 8.
