Why do you need a brim brush?
If you wear a hat, you’ll find that over time, the fur felt will attract dust and dirt from general wear. This will make your hat look dingy. The dirt and dust will get into the nap of the hat and give it a flat look.
Continuous use of a brim brush will work to keep the felt clean. It will also lift the nap to give it a brighter look. It’s important to use a brush with stiff bristles. However, too tough of a brush will cause abrasion. We recommend a horsehair brush that is stiff enough to lift the nap.
When brushing a hat, brush in a counter-clockwise direction. That will lift the nap while removing the dirt. People often rest it on their thigh, opposite of the hand with the brush. Work on the crown, then on the brim. Don’t forget to turn the hat over and brush the underside of the brim.
A good brush should be found in any hat store. Ours are available here.
