I've purchased a "Indiana Jones" crushable that I want to recrown into the classic Safari. I did it once with a really cheap wool felt that a student gave me. He'd bought it at Disneyland. That one has gone on five safaris now and is getting worse for wear (and thorns, branches, buffalo hooves, etc.) I forget how I reshaped the first one. Doesn't one just soak it in really hot water, wring it out and then reshape to the desired then wear it until it's dry? And will it shrink a half size? "Large" is too small and "XL" is too loose. It's what I get for growing a "extra-long oval" head, I guess.'' Thanx, Sarge Holland's .375: One Planet, One Rifle!
