A light-grade sandpaper or soft cleaning brush can be used to take out marks on suede hats. We have even used clear, soft erasers. Make sure the eraser is not colored, as this can leave a mark. There are also many non-toxic, waterproof sprays available to give your hat added protection from stains and rain.
This was a gift from a good friend... as a hat to wear while paddling our local Missouri Ozark rivers. I fell in love with the fit, comfort, and quality of this hat, and wear it just about everywhere. Best hat I've ever owned!
I found out about BC hats from a mate of mine, whose grandfather had gotten one of these (khaki-coloured) from his friend, who was in Australia for holidays. Sadly, the hat didn't fit, so my mate sold the hat to me for 50 euros. With the hat I got the verification document, the BC brass mark and everything, so I certainly know the hat is a genuine Bill Conner.
Have to say that this hat is an interesting one in comparison to beaver fur or wool hats (bought from Lock and Co. and a pair of thrift stores I've visited), which have been more in use on my head. The hat is nice and tight, but it's a bit of a ballgame to put it on the head securely. However, when it does sit, it actually feels good and gives a nice look; even with a wide brim. Makes me feel like Arthur Morgan from Red Dead Redemption 2.
Just saying that even thou I never considered owning a steerhide hat, I'm glad I have one now. Gonna be useful during the cool days of spring (March-May) and fall (August-October), when it's wet, yet sunny outside.
Thanks for the hat, and greetings from Finland! Stay classy!
Mooie hoed maar XXXL is nog te klein
The hats Conner produces is high quality and a good price. I have got 2 hats now and there was no difference in the Quality all excellent. I would buy from any time!
Was dissapointed that the forest green was no longer being made, so opted for the brown which when I got it was more if a chocolate brown than a rust brown.
