Sizing & Hat Care
How do I find my hat size?
Finding your size is simple! We do recommend following our sizing guide page prior to purchase to ensure you purchase your correct hat size: https://28eastern.com.au/pages/sizing
What if my head measurement falls between two sizes?
If your head circumference measurement falls between two sizes, we recommend choosing the larger size for a more comfortable fit. All our hats come with an adjuster inside.
How do I clean and care for my hat?
To keep your hat looking its best, we recommend spot cleaning it with a soft cloth or sponge using mild soap and water. Avoid fully submerging the hat, and always let it air dry in a cool, shaded area.
How do I store my hat when not in use?
When not in use, store your hat in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. If possible, keep it on a hat rack or use a hat box to help maintain its shape and protect it from dust.
What if my hat gets crushed during travel?
If your hat gets crushed during travel, don’t worry – you can usually restore its shape by steaming and reshaping it gently with your hands.
