Using a lint brush or the adhesive side of tape will remove dust and dirt on wool hats. If your wool 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.
I bought the putty color and love it. I plan to by the brown soon. I like it because of the flatter brim. I don't care for most outback-style hats because the brims usually curl up on the sides, cowboy style. Not only does that lessen sun protection, but I want to avoid the 'yee-hah!' look. :) Seems very sturdy and crush-able. Somewhat heavy and thick, so probably not a good hot weather hat. If it had pull down ear-flaps like my Tilley Montana, it would be the perfect winter hat.
Delivery was fast and the box secured the hat nicely.
Love it! Can’t wait to wear it. Only downside is I bought the Loden Green and it’s more brownish even than pictured. I’m still happy with it, but lost a star for that.
Love my new Flinders hat. Well constructed and looks awesome. I have received numerous compliments. Color and Size are true. Will definitely buy another when the time comes.
