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 don't understand...in the description it states "Handmade in Pakistan". (Copied below)
I'm looking for a hat handmade in Australia, with Australian produce (leather...preferably kangaroo), by Australians.
What is going on here???
The Kangaroo crossing hat is made from Buffalo hide and features a unique hat band and can be crushed and will pop back out to shape.
Made from Buffalo Hide
3.75" Crown Height
Handmade in Pakistan
The BC branded hats the we sell right here on the site are hand made in Bill Conner's factory in Byron Bay Australia. If you take the time to read our site you will see hats handmade in Australia and hats handmade in Pakistan and other places.. Each of the small family factories that we use are all worthy of respect and do beautiful work.
The Conner branded hats are handmade in China, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. As is evident in the description of the hat that you've copied and pasted here, we don't hide this information from our customers because we want to be a transparent company. You'll also find that many top American brands, while they are designed in house/in country, get their products manufactured in other countries as well. I also checked to see if you had ordered this hat but it seems you haven't ordered at the time of writing this response to your review and you gave a 1 star review because we were honest and transparent with our product description.
I got this hat to go on safari in Africa. The fit is perfect it’s adjustable and just like the photos. The shipping was just a few days and it came in a beautiful box
Bought this in Bisbee AZ and I love this hat, very rarely is it off my head.
The Kangaroo Crossing Buffalo Hide Crossing hat wears well, protects my head, and looks great. It does what I have come to expect from Conner Hats, It impresses
now who told Bill he could retire?
Ha! I guess when you make leather hats for 50 years, your fingers probably tell you it's time to go play in the surf than work with leather.
Enjoy and stay sun safe!
