Is it just my browser or does the forum keep going offline? I couldn't access it a week or so ago for a couple of days and then last night it was down.
It wouldn't work for me in Chrome last night but would work in another browser. Back to normal this morning though.

Any idea what this is? It’s 3.5 X 3.5 X 2.25 inches.

It could just be a general promotional item, but I’m hoping it’s something Better.

Just a box for cufflinks, tie bars, lapel pins.....change......what ever you wish to put in it. A lot of hats were sold at men's shops and they made many acessories like this. I have one of these as well as a Dobbs Glass Top Hat and glass Dobbs Fedora, each of which serves the same purpose. I have a couple from other companies too....

Yeah, I have one of those, as well. That and a few other tchotchkes I've picked up over the years. Not nearly as many things a Mark, though, I'm sure.

Must common option that is recommended here is use pipe cleaners that you have twisted the ends together and place them where the hat will rest and shape them to fit your head shape. After you have gently removed them you can look at that to get an idea of you head shape.
The other option is if you have a local hat shop that carries both a regular oval and long oval shape to try on each shape in your hat size and see which one fits better.

Part of it I would say is just how hats fit you. If you have a hat that is the correct size but it is tight at the front and back of your head or you can slide you fingers in your hat along your temples you are probably a long oval head shape.

Put on a standard oval hat. If it fits without any gaps in the sides of your head you’re a standard oval. If there are gaps where you can put your fingers between the sweatband and your head then you are a long oval.

If you really want to determine the exact shape of your head then pick up a Flex Curve (I buy mine online at Lee Valley Tools as they are best quality) You can use the 24" ones. Just wrap it around your head where the hat would sit then gently, holding the ends securely, remove from your head. You can tell just by looking at it. Is your head shape round or slightly elongated? If you to the route of the Flex Curves post your measurements, north/south & east/west and I can tell you which you are. It is the ratio of these two dimensions. Quite likely you are like most of us and somewhere in the middle of the two types. ....but leaning closer to one than the other. Worst case is if you measure as a Full Oval or an Extra Long Oval....these two shapes are at the extreme ends of the head shape continuum and are a bitch to fit.

I also use a conformateur which is much more complicated. Effective and accurate , yes ,but the $10 Flex Curves work just as well for a fraction of the price.
