Leather Bahmar hats; how to reshape them?

Trusty old Bahmar hat has gone a bit wonky in the brim line. How does one re shape a leather hat?

Dampen the leather, then place between two flat pieces of board & put on a flat surface. Weight the misshapen section & as it dries it should retain shape  

Or..........just leave it as it is? Adds a bit of character, I should think  

I've worn 'em for donkeys, but  never managed to shape them. I just let them get battered and characterful, and try to stop my beagle from eating them....
