To care for your Straw Hat, we recommend the following:
- Remove loose soil with a soft brush.
- Do not dry clean.
- When your hat is not being worn, do not rest the hat on the brim unless it is a flat brim. We suggest standing it on the crown.
- Do not handle the hat by the front pinch. When putting on and taking off handle the straw by its brim. Continual pinching of the pinch will cause the straw to wear out and crack.
Structured hats that are slightly too large may be made tighter by tucking foam under the sweatband. Fabric hats that are too small can be stretched up a size.
The Hills Hat story begins in 1875 when Englishman Chas Hill opened Hill and Sons, Men’s Hatters on Wellington’s Lambton Quay.
Today we continue to enhance the business established by the adventurous Chas over 140-years-ago. But now it’s we who supply high-end hat specialists around the world.
We love hats. With our solid tradition, our design and engineering expertise, the best hats around are designed and made here – since 1875.
