- Siur Pipen – which is what Giuseppe Borsalino fellow citizens affectionately called him – is a reinterpretation in high quality wool felt, of the iconic medium brimmed hat created by the company's founder at the beginning of the century. The soft peacock blue felt is paired with an elegant hatband in blue Astrakhan with tobacco-coloured piping finished with a bow in grosgrain as is traditional for the Alessandria hatmaker. The inside of the hat is hand-finished with a silk lining and a leather sweatband tooled with the Borsalino Antica Casa logo and the hat's individual number. Only 160 Siur Pipen hats will be produced, coming in an elegant fabric and leather hatbox with a removeable flap with a mirror and a brush to take care of the hat.
Product careRituals have a purpose. To care for your Borsalino hat, follow these simple step-by-step tips:
To maintain its shape, with both hands lift the hat using both the front and back brim. Do not take the hat from the dome.
Avoid hanging the hat always on the same side.
To remove dust, use a pure bristle brush and comb the fibers in its natural direction. Then expose the hat to a steam jet (from a kettle) to sanitize and reinvigorate the felt.
To remove small stains from the felt, use a damp cloth with a light circular motion, without excessive pressure. For persistent stains, please feel free to contact the Borsalino Care and Repair service: firstname.lastname@example.org
To remove stains on the Moroccan, the canneté band that adorns the inside of the hat, rub gently with a white cloth soaked in a small amount of Avio stain remover, avoiding the engraved gold Borsalino logo. If the Moroccan is in leather, rub gently with a cotton swab dipped in cleansing milk.
If the hat gets wet, dab it with a soft cloth and let it dry in a ventilated place away from heat.
Keep the hat away from direct light, humidity, and heat in a moth deterrent container.
