Our Aussie Hat is made out of 100% waxed cotton. The fabric was supplied to us from the originator and leader of the world famous fabric, British Millerain.
They have been developing fabrics in the UK for over 140 years and have stuck by their values – to create fabrics ‘which would suit a variety of clothing requirements, from the rigours of life in the armed forces to the demands of country pursuits’.
And yes, British Millerain fabric has actually been used by troops for its durability and weatherproof capabilities
When designing our Aussie Hat, we strive to uphold their values by creating a hat befitting all kinds of needs.
The quality waxed cotton shell ensures you are kept dry during wet weather with the wide brim offering further protection from rain. This wide brim doubles up for protection against hot weather too by keeping the Sun off your face and neck. An internal padded headband soaks up any perspiration, keeping your face and eyes dry as possible.
We also made sure the hat fits firmly around your head so the heavy wind doesn’t blow the hat away when walking – something common for wide brim hats. Just be sure to accurately measure your head and check against our size guide to get the perfect fit!
The Aussie Hat has a decorative feather for added elegance. The hat is crushable so will return to its original shape over time. This flexibility makes it suitable to be folded away for short periods when travelling.
Despite this, we package these hats in a bubble-wrapped W&H box for full protection before you receive it.
Take care of your waxed products with our Waxed Cotton Dressing. Improving it’s longevity and waterproof capabilities – you’ll not need another hat in a long time!
Durable – waxed cotton is densely woven, making it one of the most durable fabrics in the world.
