Using a lint brush or the adhesive side of tape will remove dust and dirt on wool hats. If your wool hat gets out of shape, you can use steam from a tea kettle to reshape it. Hold the hat in the steam and allow it to soften. You can then reshape your hat to its original shape and then let it cool down before wearing. Always place a hat upside down on its crown if you do not have a hat rack for storage.
The Breckinridge is the first wool felt hat I’ve worn and I’m amazed how light and comfortable it is. The ventilation holes make it very comfortable in warm weather. I was concerned the brim was going to be too small, like a fedora, but it’s actually perfect. This is a great looking, comfortable hat; my favorite so far. This is my fifth hat from Conner hats & I haven’t been disappointed yet. Great instructions and videos on their website about shaping wool hats using a tea kettle & I’ve also taken their advice & applied NikWax. A horse hair hat brush keeps it looking like new. This is the only company I’ll purchase a hat from, not only because of their great hats, but also because they care about their products, their customers, and the environment.
We really appreciate your honest review and especially your patronage over the years. Hopefully, you have subscribed to our newsletter because we sometimes include discount codes.
Loving the Breckenridge. Well made and lighter than I expected. Hasn’t been rain tested yet but if it works as well as my Murchasin River has, I’ll have no complaints.
Truly, I’m all in on Conner hats. This is my third and we recently sent two spf 50+ to in-laws that moved from western PA to southern AZ.

Best thing we love about customers buying our hats is when they also share the love with friends and family. Don't forget to look into the NikWax waterproofing spray. We also sell that on our website. There's a video that shows you how to apply it to your hat as well. Enjoy!
this hat was purchased for my son,who completely wore out his last one...
(Was starting to look like Jed Clamet ... Now he looks dashing , likeJeff Bridges.)
He and his family do not live near me but I'm sure he wares all the time ..
Haha! It's amazing how a small thing like a hat transforms the overal appearance of a person. That was a lovely gesture buying your son a Conner Hat. May it live long and still keep him looking good like Jeff Bridges!
Ordered the black version, color darker than pictured. Perfect! Fits great and looks better. Construction top notch. Very happy with purchase.
