For over 18 years, David Morgan has proudly sold BC Hats. Bill’s Stockman leather hat was the first of its kind in Australia and he perfected a way to add a wire to the brim allowing the hat to become “shapeable”. Today his original design and construction method is world renowned and the quality of a B.C Leather hat is still unsurpassed.
Unlike fur felts, leather hats can be rolled up and stowed in bags and backpacks. Any scratches or marks on the leather are not to be considered flaws. They occur naturally and are merely proof of its authenticity. The more wear you see on the leather, the more it becomes “your hat” as it develops its own individual shape and character. The brim also has a wire for you to shape it as you want.
To care for a leather BC Hat, the company recommends that you periodically treat it with leather dressing or saddle soap. Our Pecard Leather Dressing is outstanding for this. Also, avoid extreme heat such as a campfire or inside a car. This can shrink the hat. As much as you might want to dry that hat out after a days hike in the rain, keep it away from the fire! If you wish, you can apply a waterproof spray.
