If your hat is stained, a leather dressing can be applied to the outside of the hat. The leather dressing will darken the hat, mask the stain, and make the hat more waterproof. If you're just removing a small mark on the hat, sometimes rubbing the area firmly with your thumb can erase the mark. Also, you can try chalk that is a similar colour to the hat. This can soak up an oil mark. Afterwards, rub the chalk off the hat.
I bought for my husband because he wears XXL. The hat fits well but we’re a little disappointed in the quality. There are ripples in the brim.
First thing I noticed is how far the tabs that hold the hat band stick out. This hat has ears!
There's no way to flatten them down and they overpower the hat band and even the whole look of the had.
I will probably cut them off.
Secondly the hat has weird proportions: crown too tall compared to brim, has sort of a vagabond meets wicked witch of the east look. Even with my coolest riding leather it brings the look down.
Thirdly the fit: feels like a small patch of leather laying on my head.
This had has achieved the impossible by feeling both tight and unstructured at the same time.
Hey for a hundred bucks, and given this is a good company overall, I'm keeping the hat.
It may also be that it's just the wrong hat from Connor for me.
I do have plenty of hats, from highly structured cowboy hats, to waterproof crushable Aussie type hats. This one will probably fade into anonymity in my collection.
As for the reviewer who talked about what a cool had it is after riding, for me it's back to the drawing board.
I just purchased two soakable golf hats and the oily leather hat, all in XXL.
The golf hats are both noticeably larger than the oily hat.
I need the very nice adjustable inner band to keep the golf hats on in a stiff breeze, but the oily hat is a bit tight and can handle a strong breeze all on its own.
All three hats look great and are of quality construction, and the customer service of Conner Hats is outstanding.
Beautiful hat Haven’t worn it much yet needs a little breaking in but it will fit the bill perfectly thank you for a great product !
The Photos do not do it justice! This hat is superb quality and fits beautifully. The crown was a little taller then I estimated but it’s easy to get used to and accept. By far my favorite hat!
