Video Tutorial: How to Clean a Finished Leather Hat

Tips for Cleaning a Finished Leather Hat  

  • We like to use Bickmore’s Bick 4 leather conditioner, which is a very soft cream that we apply to any scratches, stains, or blemishes that need buffed out.  
  • We then use sheepskin or a similarly soft microfiber poof to buff out all blemishes.

What Makes American Hat Makers Unique


We proudly hand make our hats and hat bands in Monterey Bay, California using only the finest materials available. We guarantee our hats for a lifetime against defects in materials and workmanship.

We include our sizing system with your order. This allows your hat to be adjusted to three different sizes. Should you need a different size than this allows, we will gladly exchange your hat for a perfect fit. Simply return the hat in the original box with a note as to what you need, and we will send you the appropriate replacement. By the same token, if the color of the hat is not what you expected, we will exchange for another of our standard colors at no extra charge.

Our 100% Satisfaction Guarantee speaks for itself. Should the hat not meet up to any of your expectations, simply return the hat to us for a full refund (less shipping costs)……No questions asked. (Custom and special orders excepted).
