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.
Any reason I can't cut the strap and tie knots to hold it in the eyelits?
I beleive you spoke to Cole about it this morning! No reason at all why you should'n't do it. If it suits the look you're after and it makes you happy, go for it!
Love this hat, light and keeps me from burning haha
We appreciate the positive review. We love seeing how our customers use their Conner Hats in their adventures. If you're on a social media platform, do tag us in. Enjoy the hat!
I have had this hat for well over a year and absolutely love it. The hat looks great, is lightweight and does a fantastic job of keeping the sun off of my face. I wore the hat on a beach vacation, many camping trips, golf, working in the yard, and just about anytime I am out in the sun. The stretch band is very soft and comfortable and keeps the hat on my head after taking the cord off. The sweat band has not discolored nor has it developed any odor after sweating a lot in the sun. I am very pleased with my purchase.
The S/M was a little bigger than I thought it would be but this seems like a pretty cool hat, hopefully it will stand up to full time field work in the summer!
I absolutely love my new hat. It looks great, is beautifully made and is a pleasure to wear.
