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.
I was initially impressed with Conner Hats after an internet search for a hat. I loved the look of the Merrick Newsboy so I took a chance with it. It arrived quickly, was packaged well. I love the fit and comfort. When I wore it in the Glorida heat it was comfortable and the cloth sweatband works. Great company, great product.
Thanks for the kind review Stephen. Glad we could get you a hat that was comfortable enough to wear in Florida :)
Never been much of a hat guy/ Picked up the newsboy cap at local feed&seed probably two years ago/Two weeks later order another/ One I wear every day the other is my "special hat" Question? Can I clean my every day hat to keep it as soft as my "special hat" I will definitely keep ordering (feed and seed no longer carries the hats)
Thanks for the 5 star review. Regarding cleaning the hat, soaking it in soapy water should be good enough. I would suggest drip drying in sun as opposed to doing a spin cycle in the machine or using the dryer. All in all, they're a hardy hat!
Perfect everyday cap !!!
Glad you like it!
I’m not a big hat wearer but decided to be daring and ordered the newsboy. It fits perfectly, is comfortable and looks great. I may just get another.
Only hat my hubby will wear, love it. Would like to find this one in a white. Thanks for making a quality hat that stands up to his everyday use.
Glad your husband is a staunch Conner Hat wearer. Have a happy and safe 2021!
