View Full Version : Hat Storage?
02-13-2009, 12:26 PM
I've read all the warnings against storing a hat on its brim and it makes sense to me. So where and how do you keep your fedoras when you are not wearing them?
Is a hook preferable to a hat box, or visa versa?
Any of you vets have some good advice?

Hat racks, coat hooks, hat boxes, & on a shelf with brim snapped up or hanging over the edge = they all get used at my place.

My hats live in boxen.
Something about not having sufficient floor space for a free-standing hatrack.

Hat rack in the foyer, shelves in three closets, hat boxes in two rooms and the garage. I, too, try to store correctly, but when I don't a little steam puts things right.

Homburg on shelf, all other hats are stacked on it on top of each other. The Homburd's crown in flat anyway and the fedoras on top rest in the same way as if they are being worn.

I used some parachute cord & a bunch of food clips to make this for my hats .. It works really well & looks phenomenal hanging in my walk in closet & it's constantly changing as I rotate my hats or purchase more. The clips do not mark my hats & I clip them on the back of the hats .. my newsboys and baseball caps are stacked in a wicker basket with a cover. I keep my really soft hats in hatboxes stacked in the corner. I also installed a chain in the closet to hang my sports coats. ;)
