Made from a waterproof material that looks like leather or oilcloth. A style from a hundred years ago in a new material.
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.
This is my first Conner hat purchase. I wanted the 'newsboy' cap design to replace one I had years ago, before they were cool again, ha ha. I see no problems with the design or workmanship. I like the weathered, almost 'distressed' look. The brown cotton fabric is very soft, almost silk-like. I did spritz with Nickwax, ( thanks again Conner hats!), and wore in a light rain with no ill effects. Overall, I'm very pleased with my purchase.
Glad we could find a good replacement for you. Enjoy!
No snap is no issue because would never wear unsnapped.
I $purchased this Hat just recently and, most-likely would have given it a (5-Star) but,..the crown was sewed to the visor and, not a (snap) as advertised. Although! it is still a pretty-cool Hat to have. This my 2nd or 3rd Hat from Conner and I do not have any complaints so-far. The Hat is made to a very high standard and one can see, the Quality of Mat'l and workmanship that goes into producing a good feeling Hat as this one is. I just have a question concerning the cleaning of this type Hat ? it appears that it could be Machine-Washable ??? I just don't know at this time. Maybe someone out-there knows??? any-who, Thanks Mr. Conner.
Great hat at a good price. Fits right. Best of all my wife likes the way it looks on me.
Right fit, good material, simple design, looks great, a nice step up in style from a baseball cap. Mine is sewn to the visor (no snap), which probably makes for a more even connection.
