We strongly recommend each customer measures their head before purchasing their new hat to ensure they’re selecting the correct size. Just like shoe and clothing sizes, everyone has a unique head shape and size, which is why we offer a range of sizing options. We also urge customers to pay close attention to size and fit description on our individual product pages to assist with their purchase.

If your hat is too small, a hat stretcher will stretch your hat without making it too big. If you find your hat is just too tight, we recommend returning your hat for the next size up and adding a hat filler.

If your hat is too big, a hat filler may be an option as they reduce the hat size by approximately 1-2.5cm. By adding the filler, you can tailor the hat to fit your head shape and size perfectly.

If your hat is too big lengthways, and you can fit index finger at the front and back at the same time, we also suggest a hat filler.

Please refer to our 'care guide' for helpful instructional videos on how to add a hat filler or steam your hat.

If you wish to make your hat stiffer, we suggest using steam via a garment steamer (preferable) or an iron (using the steaming function). Simply steam the under-brim of your hat and let it lay on a flat surface overnight or until dry. You can also steam the top side of the brim and let is sit flat for a further period of time.

Our felt has been treated with a stiffening agent. Once this agent is reactivated by the steaming process, the hat should regain its original shape.

If you are having difficulties or have any questions regarding this, please email our customer care team at love@lackofcolor.com.au.

If you wish to make your hat floppier, we suggest using steam via a garment steamer (preferable) or an iron (using the steaming function). To make your hat floppier, you will need to steam the brim of your hat on both sides. You will then need to work the hat with your hands and mould it into your desired shape.

Once the hat has been steamed, hang it by the crown (the brim should not be in contact with any surface). This will allow your hat to dry from the steam into the desired shape. The hat may need to be re-worked a couple of times once dry from steaming to achieve your preferred shape.

Our felt has been treated with a stiffening agent to help it hold its form. Once this agent is reactivated by the steaming process, the hat can be encouraged to form a new shape.

If you are having difficulties or have any questions regarding this, please email our customer care team at love@lackofcolor.com.au.

We do not recommend getting your LOC hat wet as there is a lacquer/stiffening agent applied to ensure the shape is maintained.

If your hat gets wet, we recommend patting it dry with a towel so that it does not lose its shape.

To avoid the color of your hat fading, please avoid prolonged periods of sun exposure.
