    My stupid brother got me a Medium sized hat when he should've known it was a large that I wear. It fits, but it is tight as hell. It is expensive, he got it from England (so no returns), and I really like it. I wonder if there is a way to enlarge the hat, possibly with liquids of certain temprature while wearing it. It is 65% polyester and 35% cotton.
    -edit- OOPS, wrong area. I meant to put this in General Off-topic.

    This is very caveman, but find a bowling ball or a large ball (Hehe) and like pull it over a billion times. Stretch it. And your mthr sig is funny.

    Lol, I didn't want to accidentally rip it, but it does come with what they call "rip proof" technology, so I might give it a try.

    Like a fitted baseball cap? Or a nice hat?

    If it's a baseball cap, you could try soaking it in just water, or water and a little detergent, then wear the hat soaking wet. If you do that a few times, the hat might stretch out enough for you to wear it. I used to do that with hats in college, and it would work most of the time. Oddly enough, it also works pretty well if you need to shrink a hat a little bit. Cotton is funny that way.

    I'm afraid the only other suggestion would be to cut your hair! [​IMG]
