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 like the style of the hat very much and it fits well. However, I'm not a fan of the elastic band at the front of the brim. While it does allow the had to fit somewhat better, the fabric is itchy and irritating to my forehead after an hour or so.
I had a flat cap before, but once I put on the Merrik cap I have pretty much abandoned my old flat cap.
This hat fits extremely well, it's comfortable, and it's sleek.
You'll enjoy the experience of wearing this hat, trust me.
Great hat. Already looking for my next purchase
I struggle to find hats for my big-headed husband - Conner hats are my new favorites. The stitches and worn look are great in person and style is very trendy.
