How can I expand a men's pork pie hat? Answered

I just bought a men's pork pie hat that according to the website should fit my head. I ordered the XL which should be 60-61cm and should fit my head, but it didn't. Having spent $70 already on shipping, taxes and fees I would rather not spend $20 more on returning the shipping cost of returning it. The company I bought it from does not have a larger size either... What should I do to expand the size?

That is an expensive hat.
You'll ruin it trying to make it fit: cut your losses by selling it, and go looking for a hat shop you can walk into.


I have to agree with you.. Selling the hat seems to be the cheapest option. Though I will have to buy a new hat online since it is about 300km to the nearest hat shop...


How much too small is it. It is common practice to stretch hats to the next half size. They actually make a hat stretcher kinda like a shoe tree.
