The school hat is probably the most abused item in the school uniform. It is often pulled in and out of school ports, ‘frisbeed’ in the playground, trodden on, sweated on, and washed regularly. And yet so many of the available hats are not made to withstand this treatment. At MackaHat we have designed all of our hats with this treatment in mind.
The usual school colours for hats are navy, royal blue, maroon, bottle green and black – all colours which are prone to fading. We are proud to be able to offer schools a fabric which will not fade or shrink! The feedback we are receiving is that some students have had their hats for several years, wearing them for both school and sport on the weekends, and they are as good as new.
All of our hats are fully lined so there is no paper/ foam band around the inside of the crown to fall apart with constant washing. The brims on our Broad-Brim Hats are lined with rubber so that they can be rolled up and shoved in a school port and will not go ‘floppy’ from washing.
