Stetson is proud to enforce the most demanding quality control standards in the industry. Once our buyers have secured the world's finest raw materials, a rigid inspection is conducted.
Long Term Care of Your Hat
1.) Never store your Stetson right side up on a flat surface. This could cause the brim to flatten. Store upside down on a clean surface or in a box.
2.) To remove surface dirt from a straw Stetson, wipe with a clean damp cloth. For a fur felt, use a soft brush starting at the left side of the hat and brushing counter-clockwise toward the back. Repeat.
3.) Because heat and perspiration will shrink the sweatband, avoid exposure to stoves, radiators, lamps and car windows.
4.) If your fur felt Stetson gets wet, turn down the leather sweatband and stand the hat on the sweatband to dry. Avoid resting the hat on its brim while wet.
5.) To keep sweatband dry of perspiration and hairdressings, occasionally turn down the sweatband to dry when not being worn.
6.) Clean water and grease spots on fur felt with baby powder or cornstarch. Avoid all liquid cleaners.
7.) Hold your Stetson at the brim, in front and back, when removing. Avoid handling the crown as much as possible.
