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.
Love the hat, very good for the Irish rain, medium was a tiny bit small for me but will stretch as I wear the hat hopefully.
Thank you for your review. May we also recommend the NikWax water proofing spray. We've some videos that show how well it works.
The hat is great, but the chin strap was poor quality leather and left bits of itself wherever it went. The hat works well though without the strap. Hat good, strap bad.
We appreciate the feedback and apologize for the quality in the chin strap. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with pictures of the chin strap and the crew will work on getting an alternative for you.
The hat was delivered promptly and fits nicely with the liners which were provided. Very nice hat, haven't tasted it's waterproof claim yet, as we haven't had any serious rain in California yet this year. I am happy with the quality and fit, and would order again.
We're praying for good rain to you guys in California! Just as an FYI, we sell waterproof spray for hats so look that up when you get the chance.
I like this hat. I already had a couple other brown hats so I ordered the loden. When it arrived, it was closer to brown than the olive-ish brown that I expected. I double-checked with customer support and was assured that I received the correct hat. I'll keep it. I wear it. I like it. The first time my fashion-attentive fried saw it, he called it loden. I don't know colors, obviously, but I like this hat and would happily have another.
I purchased this hat in Dec 2018 and love it. The brim is pretty flat out of the box but you can "block it" to your shape and style. A gentleman named Kevin from JJ Hats in New York City has several YouTube videos on how to steam, shape, and care of your hats. He is a real artist at steaming and blocking. Worth checking out.
