  • Conner Hats
    Conner Hats, headed by Will Conner, is a continuation of the legacy of his father Bill's business, BC Hats. Will's travels as a young man gave him an appreciation for how humans affect the world. Will makes it company policy to tread lightly and consider the wider outcome of business decisions. "I believe we can make a positive change," Will says. "Thoughtful actions can improve the health of business while reducing negative impact on cultures and ecosystems alike. Our goal is to promote long-term thinking and to really consider future generations with every product we create and every decision we make as a brand." The wool used in Conner Hats is cruelty free. Recycled and organic materials are used wherever possible. both in the hats and in the packaging. We carried BC Hats for many years, up until Bill's retirement during the pandemic, and are now pleased to offer these Conner Hats.
  • Hat Sizing

    Heads come in all sizes, and in a surprising variety of shapes. Although high quality hats are adaptable, and will usually conform to differences in shape with a little wearing, it is essential that the size be correct for the head.

    To determine your hat size, measure the circumference around your head, keeping the tape level and firm, across the temples and above the eyebrow ridges. If you do not have a tape measure, download, print and assemble our hat tape here: hat_tape.pdf. Check the size chart given below. For in-between measurements use the next size up.

    Check the Fit
    When your hat arrives, check the fit before wearing to make sure you have ordered the correct size:

    1. The sweatband inside the hat should fit securely on the head without binding.

    2. For some in-between sizes, and for some head shapes, greater comfort may be attained by placing felt pads inside the sweatband.

    3. The top of the crown should not be so low that it touches the top of your head and prevents the hat from coming down far enough to seat properly. If it does, with a leather or cloth hat you may need a smaller size. With an Akubra fur felt hat the top can be adjusted. Check the information sheet supplied with the hat, or check our Hat Frequently Asked Questions page.

    If the hat does not fit, recheck your hat size, and exchange your hat for the correct size. Hats in unused condition can be returned for exchange or refund within 90 days of purchase. Payment for international shipments must be by credit card or money order in US funds.


  • Cruelty-Free Wool
    To create the world's first cruelty-free wool hat, Conner Hats first had to go back through their supply chain and make sure only wool from farms in Australia that do not practice Mulesing was purchased, then track that specific wool from their distributor in China to their factory. Each shipment is certified Non-Mulesed wool and all parties, including the sheep, are very happy with the results.

    Mulesing is the removal of chunks of skin on the buttocks of the sheep to stop a disease called Flystrike. Over 20 million Merino lambs are historically Mulesed in Australia each year. There are alternatives to this cruel practice. It took Conner Hats approximately two years to sort out the details to ensure their hats are manufactured with cruelty-free wool. There are more and more Australian farms with a holistic approach to sheep farming so more non-Mulesed wool is available now. You can read more about cruelty-free wool at NewMerino.com.au.
