Akubra's official hat stretcher is the best way to get your favourite hat back to its original size.
For the first session, we like to steam up our hats a little, it helps to soften the felt and make it more pliable. Then we place the stretcher inside and adjust the internal thread to expand the hat. The hat can then be left for a few hours before trying on.
After wearing your hat it's a good idea to place the stretcher back into the crown to prevent any shrinkage and maintain the crown's shape. A good way to store your hat when not in use!
Can be used for any hat brand, material or shape.
