To help maintain the appearance of your hat always store
them upside down when you’re not wearing it. The brim of your hat
is very delicate, therefore by placing the hat on the crown, pressure
is taken off the brim, allowing the hat to maintain its original form or firmly stuff the hat with tissue paper before storing.
Take note to hold the crown of your hat with care, unnecessary
handling can cause your hat to loose it’s form.
Moths and crickets can eat holes in your hat, when possible,
store your hat in a cedar closet or in a hat box with cedar chips, when
your hat is put away for storage.
It is important to keep your hat clean, excessive lint,
dirt, hair grease can lead to the deterioration of your hat’s durability
and cause permanent soiling. To remove lint or dust from Felt hats always
brush hat in a counter-clockwise direction.
When selecting a hat, if your head size falls between
two sizes, it is advisable to select the larger size to insure a more
comfortable fit. A small piece of foam behind the sweatband can make the
larger hat fit just right.
