Hats can last a lifetime, or longer, with proper care and handling. We want to help you protect your investment.
- Avoid pinching the felt.
A preferred method of handling is to use both hands, placed at the junction of brim and crown.
- Short term storage
Place the hat upside down to help retain brim shape. Placing the hat brim down may result in a misshapen brim.
- Long term storage
Many find it preferable to have a hat rack or hat storage box.
- Exposure to harsh environments (excessive heat or moisture, such as what can be found in closed vehicles or bathrooms) can alter the shape and/or fit.
- Use a soft bristle brush with gentle strokes to remove dust.
- Felt quality affects a hat's ability to withstand weather. Pure beaver felt will hold up better in precipitation than blends.
- Do not leave your hat unattended in public places!
