The Merrik Newsboy cap is made from a water resistant weathered cotton. It starts to look better with age like leather.
What is weathered cotton? It's a mixture of cotton and polyester that gives the hat a leather-like look and feel, as well as water resistant capabilities.
It's best to spot clean all cloth hats with a damp cloth using cold water, or hand-wash in a sink if necessary. We recommend using plant-based soaps because regular detergents can be toxic for our waterways.
Always let your hat dry naturally. If your 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.
Another option to take out wrinkles on the brim is to place a clean rag or old T-shirt over the wrinkled area then iron the area.
Well built hat without being pretentious! Ordered for the rain, has been great twice already. No doubt there will be another order soon. Size is perfect!
Comfortable nice looking hat. This is my second purchase of this style hat only because the hat itself long outlasts the elastic sizing band and starts to wear a little loose after a year or so. If I can get that replaced at a dry cleaner's or seamstress the first one should last several more years. Overall good quality and looks great.
Ordered a large but its a bit too tight. Need to return and get next size larger.
Three days from clicking the "order" button to sitting on my noggin. Pleased with the craftsmanship, quality, and price. Staff responsiveness was lightening fast. I'll be ordering an Indy hat shortly.
Having a smaller head, it has been difficult to find a comfortable hat. Of course doesnt it hurt to have one that looks great too! Conner Hats came through on both accounts. This was my second purchase through this company. Enjoy.
