I picked up the hat I will be fixing up at the mall tonight. I'll probably mess around with it tomorrow. There isn't much to notice in a photo about the difference from the front view. The real difference is that it's a different material and all of the other differences I outlined earlier. This one is the right material (100% polyester) which is what you want. Who knows what the other one is made out of.

So I have decided that I am going to use techniques to get this hat to fit better moving from least to most invasive. I got a hat that was a little too big so I am going to have to shrink it at least a little bit no-matter what.

I learned of a blow dryer trick to try to get the plastic inside warm to shape the crown lower. If I am successful at doing that, it would prevent me from having to cut the plastic out. I've done that before but it's more invasive so I don't want to start with that.

The goal is to go from what it looks like now:

To something more like this, without the wear and tear of course:
