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.
Love this hat so much I ordered another one a week later.
Honestly, I was so glad to find a nice hat that was for a larger head. Would love to see more hat makers follow this trend and have more offerings.
I've had my hat only a short time but have received several compliments about the style and how well I look in it. The size chart said I should order a large and I was unsure but the hat has a nice elastic band in front so it fits comfortably and not snug like a ball cap style hat. I had 2 different hat types in my order and they both appear very nicely made, what "Made in America" used to mean. I will certainly shop Conner Hats again.
Excellent hat! Great fit and style at a great price! I had the black one and liked it so much that I bought the brown one!
super cool hat. well made, awesome styling. been looking for a hat like this for years. this is my 3rd connor hat, can't say enough good things about their products.
