Hat Care

Rough Out (Suede Finish) leather may be cleaned with a stiff brush or fine sand paper.

Smooth (full grain, nubuck, wax/oily, or distressed finish) leather may be periodically treated with leather dressing or saddle soap.

Canvas hats can be cleaned with a damp cloth

Straw hats can be kept clean and fresh looking by brushing with a small wisk broom. If the hat gets wet, wipe off surplus water with a dry cloth. With the brim turned up, place on a level, clean surface, to dry. Do not use artificial heat.

All hats may also be treated with a waterproof spray if necessary.

Some shrinkage may occur if exposed to extreme heat e.g. drying out by an open fire or left exposed to strong sunlight in a closed vehicle.

The stiffening along the edge of the brim allows the hat to be shaped as desired. Some hats come with a flexible filament in the brim to allow the hat to
be crushed.

A chin strap may be added by using the eyelet holes on each side of the crown to thread the strap.

Each hat will develop its own individual shape and character with wear.

Any scratches or marks on leather are not to be considered flaws. They occur naturally and are merely proof of its authenticity.
