It's best to spot clean all cloth hats with a damp cloth using cold water, or hand-wash in a sink if necessary. We recommend using plant-based soaps because regular detergents can be toxic for 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.
Another option to take out wrinkles on the brim is to place a clean rag or old T-shirt over the wrinkled area then iron the area.
The Sahara Aussie hat is a very comfortable and well-made sunshade. It looks and feels sturdy and durable. The khaki color in the picture here is lighter than the actual hat, which is more of an English or European understanding of khaki - closer to a darker, slightly more olive tint. The style, the wide brim, and the all-cotton comfort of the hat make it great headgear for enjoying hot and sunny days without fear of sunburn.
The hat is great, bought this to replace a hat that my boyfriend had for years that he lost. He loved his old hat and it tool a while to find a replacement. We measured his head and ordered accordingly. They must run large because I am having to return the hat and unfortunately they are out of stock on the medium. Waiting for the medium to come back in stock.
I had a cheap bucket hat with snaps on the sides as my working hat. It wasn't much, but it did its job wonderfully. Put it through sun, rain, hot, cold and everything in between. Before destroying it too much I decided to seek for a replacement, a hat worthy of replacing for good my trusty 10+ years hat. So I searched for my preferred style, what I wanted and how I wanted it. Not only does Conner Hats have a massive selection of styles and models, they are top notch for offering the absolute best of the best in hat making. This is a gorgeous hat, it fits perfectly, has that huge wide brim perfect for blocking out the sun the glare and the rain, a nice tall crown that also lets the hat breathe and keep your head cool and it has the snap-up brim to the left for the slouch style. This helps in both shaping the hat and also it gives it a tiny boost on tightening to your head, in case you don't feel like wearing it with the chincord but want to ensure your hat stays in place regardless. I would recommend this hat to anyone that wants to help the planet with ecologically friendly guidelines, help a smaller company like Conner Hats grow and continue leaving a positive mark on the environment, and help yourself; to a responsibly grown, beautifully made, handcrafted piece of true 'down-under' headwear. Cheers to anyone kind enough to read through this and I hope you find your head match just as much as I found mine. Thank you Conner Hats, and thank you all hat enthusiasts. Good day.
Well made and fit as expected.
