Bigger or Smaller New Era Fitted?
 

 
I'm trying to get a New Era fitted cap, but they only have a 7 1/8 and a 7 3/8. I wear a 7 1/4....so my question is

Is it better to get a bigger hat and try to shrink it, or get a smaller hat and stretch it?

THANKS

get the 3/8

fitteds are hand made and have some variance but they also shrink. i buy my fitteds 1 size too big so when they shrink they fit perfect.

Do you have a new era flagship store near you???

The reason I ask is because most of they flagship stores have this machine that stretches hats up to two sizes bigger. I had the same problem wit a hat once, and I bought the size smaller, and went to new era. They used that machine to make it a size bigger. It still doens't fit like my actual size, but it's damn near close...

New Era's have been fitting hella small lately. ten years ago I wore a 7 1/8, then i started wearing 7 1/4 about 5 years ago. The past two years Ive been wearing 7 and 3/8. I just bought a SF giants new era with the world series patch and the 7 3/8 almost feels too snug. I like fitteds a little loose or I'll get a headache..

my problem is that i once got a hat that's a size bigger, and i tried to shrink it by wearing it while i have wet hair and by sweating in it. The top part of the hat did shrink, but the headband stayed the same so the headband is easily visible and it looks weird as s**t.

I've never gotten a smaller hat before and stretching it out is doable, but I do know the hat naturally shrinks so i don't know if that's a good idea either.

man, can we just talk about how New Era went and f**ked with the sizes of fitteds and now nothing really is consistent?

I got a bunch of New Era fitteds and they all 7 5/8ths and they all fit a lil' different....

^ word. I hate them new black brims man. I truly wished they'd do back to the white/gray brim.

the sizing in new eras is so inconsistent that it most likely won't matter

This. I also wear 7 1/4 and even with the brim perfectly flat, 3/8 is still big as hell on my head. The only way I'd imagine a 1/8 working is if you don't mind bending the brim by a lot and if you don't wear your hats low.

ALWAYS GO BIGGER... them headaches are no f**king joke... and I usually wear fits when my hair is LONG, and I am covering it till I get a cut... and I use to go with a normal fit perfect size... then few months later or hair would grow out then s**t was mad tight... I would rock anyways and then my head would start pounding would have to take it off in like 2 - 5 min intervals...

yah go bigger. take a damp cloth and dampen the hat. then put your dryer on high heat. dry the hat and pull it out every 10 seconds and try it on. either that or if it's hot outside. just dampen it then walk around outside til you got ur fit. then go sit it out of the heat to finish air drying.
