If your hat is stained, a leather dressing can be applied to the outside of the hat. The leather dressing will darken the hat, mask the stain, and make the hat more waterproof. If you're just removing a small mark on the hat, sometimes rubbing the area firmly with your thumb can erase the mark. Also, you can try chalk that is a similar color to the hat. This can soak up an oil mark. Afterwards, rub the chalk off the hat.
I live in the Southwest where temps can get a bit warm. No problem with this hat. Feels light on your head but it's definitely not a flimsy hat. Great looking, and it fit comfortably right out of the box. I love that it can take my asinine abuse and bounce back, never the wiser of the fool that wear it. lol
My new favorite.
Glad you're loving it! Be sure to check up our hat care page to extend the longevity of the hat.

Well, after leaving my last hat on public transportation, yes, stupid me, I finally replaced it. So glad I did right before the up coming seasons. Having a small head and having to cut my hair (Cancer/chemo), it still fits wonderfully. I get compliments on it seemly where ever I go. It's crushable, packable, and reshapable at will. Takes various hat bands (yes, I love the one supplied) and still rocks the hat. BC hats IS my hat company because of the consistent quality I've received owning 2 of the same. Since this is now an official collectors item, it never leaves my head lol. Might have to think of owning another just because it's a BC. Oh and to include the sizing foam was a real bonus, Thank You! Although, as stated, not needed. Thank You for fast delivery, well packaged, wonderfully made quality hat!
Certainly a collectors item. Be sure to look up hat care tips for leather hats so that you can extend the longevity of the BC hat. 50 years of making handmade leather hats may have ended last year when Bill Conner (BC) closed up shop but it's folks like you that keep the brand alive. Enjoy and stay sun safe!
arrived timely and well packaged. I thought hat might be too big so I ordered strips just in case but it fits just right. Not had a chance to wear much but I really like it! Now I want to order a new outfit to match my badass hat.
You have a keeper there. Bill Conner (BC) shut down his factory last year after 50 years of making handmade leather hats.

Glad we ticked those boxes for you! Enjoy!
Beautiful craftsmanship, very well detailed, perfect fit.. I love it! And I know I have a collectors item and a piece of history. ❤️
Great sun and heat protection, truly keeps me cool in the New Mexico's desert. Very Important to me as we need to protect ourselves from skin cancer (dermatologist recommendation).
Fast shipping, great service.
Thank you! Keep up the good job!
