Cleaning a vintage derby
I picked up a nice derby hat in Amsterdam last week and documented the quick and fun process of cleaning it. I used the lint roller to do the initial cleaning, followed by brushing the hat with a hat brush. I bought my hat brush at JJ Hatcenter in NYC. Be sure to always brush your hats in a counterclockwise direction.
Here’s what it looks like all cleaned.
Here’s what it looked like when I first brought it home.
And here’s what it looked like after a cleaning and brushing.
