So, this type of model will be preferred by people wishing to wear a bucket hat for its practical aspects.


For bucket hat lovers looking for an original hat that will make them stand out, we recommend opting for a patterned bucket hat. More unique and unusual, the patterned bucket hat will add real value to your attire. Among the most popular designs, we'd like to mention floral motifs, which will go perfectly with plain-toned garments, such as shorts and a shirt. The bucket hat will then add a touch of uniqueness. We note, however, that the patterned bucket hat will only be favored with relatively sober outfits, for perfect harmony.

The color

When choosing your bucket hat, you'll also need to consider its color, so that it can blend in with all your clothes. So, there are several possibilities open to you. On the one hand, you can opt for a bucket hat in bright colors, which will spice up a sober outfit, just as patterns would.

How to maintain your Bucket Hat?

Worn throughout the day, your bucket hat is likely to get dirty. In contact with perspiration caused by physical activity or simply exposed to possible stains, your bucket hat will need to be properly cleaned. In fact, to ensure that your bobsleigh will be with you for many years to come, it's essential to take good care of it. To do this, you'll need to take into account the material from which your bucket hat is made, which will determine the type of maintenance, both in terms of steps and frequency.

Steps to successful maintenance

First, we note that bucket hat maintenance comprises several essential steps. First of all, our first tip will focus on how to clean your hat. Indeed, it's advisable to opt for a hand wash, to guarantee a gentle operation, which a washing machine doesn't systematically offer.

With soapy water and a soft sponge, you'll manage to remove any stains and marks present on your bucket hat. By rubbing gently, your hat will retain its original shape, and won't be deformed after the first wash. As for drying, we recommend you first blot gently with a dry washcloth, which will absorb any excess water. Afterwards, simply leave to air dry.

Washing frequency

The frequency with which you wash your bucket hat will depend mainly on how you use it. A bucket hat regularly worn, under extreme conditions such as intense physical activity, will need to be cleaned regularly. We also advise you to wash your bobsleigh immediately if it becomes stained. The sooner you act, the less likely it is to persist and leave a mark.
