Need baseball cap help

    I got a fitted cap for Christmas. At 7 1/4 it's just a mite snug and I'd like to get it just a bit loser (it's too long of a story, but this would be far easier than sinply returning it and going to a 7 3/8) so it would be more comfortable.

    Any help on how to loosen the band? I've heard get the band soaked and then wear it until it dries and shrinks to fit, but I figured before I'd try that I'd call upon the best sources in the world for help.

    Got any ideas?

    Iron the bill flat and wear it crooked. That'll look cool.

    Soaking it and wearing might help a little, but a cap that's too small will usually stay that way. You might try shaving your head.

    Ask for an adjustable cap next year.

    There actually are hat stretchers available. How much they cost, I don't know. But most, if not all, of the MLB teams use them.

    I've always found that fitted caps, unlike vaginas, get smaller when they get wet.

    Good call, Jonesy.

    Not to belabor the point, but vaginas fit much better than caps when they're wet.

    MLB teams use cap stretchers? If that's not evidence of steroid use, I don't know what is.

    It's been a while since I've had an mlb fitted cap, but if it's made of wool, you're sol. Once you sweat in it, it will shrink without fail. Exchange it before you change the color of the band.
