anybody else have the problem with some fitteds feeling extra big and some being kinda tight, and its the same exact size? are they hand sewn?
im right between a 7 1/4 and a 7 3/8 and hate that i cant find the right hat/size sometimes

I'm in the exact same position.

The Cool Base 7 1/4 fits me perfectly, but every thing else I have to either size up to a 7 3/8 and shrink with water OR buy a 7 1/4 and rip the stitching.

yup...all my hats fit different. I can never order anything online; when I go to stores I have to try on 3-4 different 7 3/8s to find the right one. In one way it's good though, I now have a variety of hats for different hair lengths

I'm between 7 1/4, and 7 3/8. I have a 7 1/4 that leaves this ridiculous red mark across my forehead when I take it off cause it's tight on my head. I never wear the stupid hat.


Too bad there's no 7 3/16!!

This.  I might need to start buying 7 3/8 just because over time my 7 1/4 shrink

same here..to me they feel too tight on the sides and gives that weird shape after a while..thats why I try to find as many gray underbrims as possible.
ordering a new era online is basically a game of russian roulette..either its my hat too big or my head hurt like helll wearing this

Yeah I hate the inconsistencies in the sizing...especially when it should fit and it's too small while a size that should be too small sill fit

You can always stretch and shrink them (cept new On Fields...team grey underbrim ftw)

What i love about the caps is that you can always fix em to fit you

Yea me too. It depends where its made.
China 7 3/8 fit big on me (sup my hat too big) but after some wears it fits almost perfect. USA 7 3/8 fit small (wearing+sweat shrink and will fit like a USA 7 1/4.)
China 7 1/4 fit good (but soon as I sweat a little it shrinks and starts fitting small). 7 1/4 USA is just too small.

I go with 7 3/8 the majority of the time, and hope its made in China.

I looked into it because I have like 60 hats

Whoa. I thought it was just me that hated the fitting on it.
For a minute I thought my head (pause) wasn't meant for fitteds..I've gone to lids and tried on like 4 diff 7 3/8's.

Yes, that's why as much as I would like to.. I can't order new eras online. I always have to go to the store and try them on first.
