Yes! But please use caution and follow the directions on the "How To Use Your Hat" page linked below.
Always tie a small knot under the clip and ensure the hat is on tight.
Please note: these hats are not waterproof, they are water resistant. This means they will still get wet. Fresh water should not damage the hat so long as you follow the following steps.
Rinse the hat with fresh water
Air dry as soon as you are out of the water. While drying, please ensure the hat is not being "crushed" and in its original form - you may want to use a towel inside or a hat skeleton while it drys to keep its form. Letting the hat dry while it is wrinkled or flattened due to water weight can cause the hat to dry in a wrinkled state.
Our hats have a couple different fits for a couple of reasons. First, we have 2 different suppliers for our blank hats and 1 manufacturer for our custom caps, like the hats with a sublimated design on their brim. Basically, we get our blank hats from 3 different sources. All three of these places make their caps a little differently, and while similar, you may notice a difference. At this stage of our company, using these three sources is the best way to offer the variety of caps we currently provide, but at the cost of a less than 100% uniform fit. Past that, hats can vary slightly from batch to batch based on such minor details as stitching placement, fold & stitch tolerance, how the snaps are stitched in etc. These minor production variances can play a big part in the end fit of the cap. As we grow we hope to move to a single manufacturer, so we have a uniform, perfect fit across the board. Just one step at a time. We do have a satisfaction guarantee, so if you ever get a hat that isn't right for whatever reason, you can send it back to us and swap out with something else, or we can give you a full refund.
Design, embroidery, laser cutting the leather, hand dying, treating & stitching the leather patches, grommeting the caps, laser cutting the wood clips, cutting, tying & styling the laces, screen printing, cutting sewing & applying the hidden pockets. We put a lot of pride time & energy into doing this the best we can.
We are still a young brand and we do not have the funds to build a complete hat from scratch out of our garage, though it is our ultimate intention, we aren't there yet. Here is a video that shows everything we do in-house, which is a very hands-on, tedious process and something that we are proud of and hope to continue including more aspects of production done in-house. https://vimeo.com/196499440

The warranty does not cover standard wear on a hat such as sweat stains, loss of structure or dirtiness. All hats will ultimately get dirty and lose their structure if you wear it a lot. The warranty is meant to repair or fix faulty components on hats or accidental damage to the hat.
That said, send us a photo of a well loved Findlay hat prior to a future order and we may be able to do something for ya :)
