Using a lint brush or the adhesive side of tape will remove dust and dirt on wool hats. If your wool 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.
I like the Leroy fedora, I have it in both brown and gray. A nice classic look with a wide brim that provides the sun protection I need. My biggest beef with it is the over-welt brim edge, which causes the whole brim to want to snap up all around, a la "Norton from the Honeymooners" style. Since the model in the pictures wears it that way, I guess that's by design. I prefer the front snapped down in the classic style and, while you can do that with this hat, it fights you on it. Sizing runs big. I have it in both L and XL. I normally wear a 7 5/8 (61cm) and the L fits snugly while the XL fits loosely. Both are acceptable fit. Quality seems nice. I wish it came in tan or taupe.
Great looking and great wearing hat. It has a look of class about it.
Following your directions gave me the perfect fit! I love my new hat! And, yes...a woman CAN wear a fedora!
Another great hat from Connor Hats. Great looking design and well made as usual, unfortunately I had to return mine, as I wear my fedora brims up, and at close to three inches, such a wide brim in this style just didn't suit my face. But that's just my face haha, nothing against this hat. If you prefer wider brims on your fedora then this is a hat for you!
Great hat! Great price. I love the quality of the wool. Very satisfied with it.
