Hats are mostly made of Felt, Straw or Wool. Felt hats are the most expensive, Wool is less pricey and straw hats are the least expensive. For a hat made of felt, the cost is often determined by the amount of beaver fur in the hat and is marked by the amounts of X’s indicated on the inside of the hat. The higher the X, the more beaver fur is used and this normally makes the hat more durable with a softer and smoother feel.
Straw hats also sometimes also have an X on the inside, this specifies the quality of the straw and how tight the weave is. Typically on our Shantung Panama hats there is an X rating.
A top quality felt hat can last from 20 years to a lifetime because of the durability of beaver fur. One reason for buying a high end hat is so that is can last a long time.
Some general rules for hat storage –
1. Most important rule is to not put a lot of pressure on the crown or brim because this may ultimately cause the hat to lose its shape.
2. When placing the hat on a flat service, place it brim up and crown down.
3. During long periods when your hat is not warn, it is better to store a proper hat box.
4. Store hats in a cool, dry environment. The worst place for a western hat is in a hot car.
To Travel with a hat, some make use of Travel Hat Boxes with Handles to buy here at Trailsaddles.co.za. These solid containers protect the hat from damage.
