    For the perfect fit.

    A lot of my hats are a little too tight. Always wanted to get a hat stretcher. Thanks, American Hat Makers. I do have hats from American Hat Makers. That is the right size from my hand.

    It works well

    Since purchasing the hat stretcher it has restored three of my hats to their comfortable fit. No more headaches or red impressions on my forehead from hats that had shrunk.

    I purchased the Bromley Top

    I purchased the Bromley Top Hat medium and it fit a bit snug, so I purchased the stretcher used it as directed and now my hat fits perfectly. Great product.
