I rescued my favorite panama hat, a classic Borsolino. The cracking was pretty bad, and the larger D shaped repair patch might have been more appropriate. But the V shaped strip worked, and was easy to apply.
All panama hats are vulnerable to damage at the pinch of the crown. If the hat doesn't have any reinforcement there now, it's going to need to be repaired later. This is the stuff!
wonderful hat but cracked over the years order the strips to prevent and repair cracks worked wonderful turn my hat loving friends on to ultrafino tks
The repair strips were send by USPS to Belgium and handled over to Bpost in Belgium. Bpost however lost the package and untill now we did not receive it. We are waiting for news from Ultrafino.
I have a beautiful Mayser Panama hat that started to break on the crown. Ordered the Ultrafino Insert Repair Strips and after following the instructions provided, my hat looks like new and protected on the crown. The strip provided a perfect seal. Great product! Thanks!
