I just got my second Federation. A carbon gray. My first one was a deluxe which they don't offer in the carbon gray. I steamed my first one many times changing the bash and brim. It shrunk but not as bad as the carbon gray one has. What I did with the gray was soak it with cold water and steam it a bit to soften it up since it was pretty stiff. It has now shrunk a significant amount over the first one I had. For the record it actually does fit ok now. A tiny bit tight but I have a few mannequin heads I could put it on to stretch it a bit if needed. The point of this post is I was debating get two more, the moonstone and the brown but am back and forth on regular or deluxe now. Has anyone notice their deluxe shrink by one full hat size like my standard has now done?
