    Question Does JJs Hat Store in NYC offer hat cleaning?

    I spilt coffee on my Borsalino and as I'll be in Manhatten next week and as I am familiar with JJs I wondered if anyone new this.

    The coffee stain is on the liner only, it didn't stain the felt at all.

    It pays to look well ....

    I am not sure if JJ does cleanings.
    Is the liner removable?

    It's a hand stitched liner. My best hat

    Would kill me to remove the liner....

    Will happily keep wearing it and send to Graham some day if there is nowhere in NY to do it....

    Here is what I can tell you about my good friends at JJ Hats. They do clean and steam hats . The problem is that I doubt you can take a stain out of a lining. You would have to remove it and wash it with a cleaning solvent such as Everbloom cleam fluid .
    You can try and rub a little alchohol on the lining too before you remove but it may not do much.

    I agree with CB. I know Orlando (the Owner) does cleaning, restoring and reblockings. Your best bet here in NYC
