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 purchased this hat on a whim a couple of years ago at a beer and BBQ festival and glad I did. I am fair skinned and keep short hair so I rely on the hat's woven straw to filter the amount of sun that comes through, while allowing enough air to flow and keep things cool. The naturally rugged and weathered design is at home on casual outings, a day at the beach, working in the yard or taking a hike along the Appalachian Trail. Highly recommended!
Just ordered this hat and I freakin LOVE it. Plus conner hats is always very reliable and they get your hat out to you quickly. Thanks guys! :-)
