Straw hats can be spot-cleaned with a damp cloth. We recommend using plant-based soaps because regular detergents can be toxic to 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. Always place a hat upside down on its crown if you do not have a hat rack for storage.
Many of our straw hats come with a wire in the brim so you can shape the hat to match your style. With a little practice you can reshape your hat brim easily. Western styles are generally worn with the brim turned up on the sides and Australian style hats look great with a dip in the front and the back.
I am thoroughly impressed with the looks and quality of this hat. I have another raffia hat that makes my head itch. I do not have that problem with this hat, I like the wide brim on this hat without the heavy feel of my previous raffia hat.I am sure this hat will get plenty of wear, especially when we go on vacation to the beach later this summer.This is my 4th Conner hat,two cloth, two straw, and i love them all.I am sure as time goes on,I will be purchasing more hats from Conner,Kudos for a great product, and great customer service.
I have been wearing Conner Hats for over 15 years and the quality is always excellent. This edition of the straw beach hat is made of a cool raffia material that is guaranteed to let the summer breeze ventilate through the crown so that heat from the sun is minimized. The wide brim is perfect for keeping the face and neck secure from the elements. The style is a head-turner as I have gotten nothing but compliments since I first put it on. The raffia is lightweight and comfortable and holds its shape well over the years as I have similar hat that is over a decade in my possession that is still handsome and attractive to wear. The only drawback to this lid is its size tends to be a little small for my likes, but the stretchable and absorbent headband around the inside will loosen over time and make a perfect fit
Fits as it should and looks great!
