Alright, so I wear a 57.5. The only 58 or 7 1/4 I've worn that fit is my Borsalino. 7 1/8 is just a little snug. So what I've recently done is buy a Hatjack, and used it to stretch smaller hats out a bit. Seems to work okay. But I know some people go the opposite route, and prefer to shrink a hat with the water&lamp method. And then I've also read that Akubras come slightly large to begin with, so maybe a 57 would fit my 57.5 head just right from the get go. What say ye? Shrink, stretch, or is the Akubra 57 actually 57.5 to begin with?
