: Do fur felt fedoras retain their shape? I know it may be a bit pricey, but if fur doesn't shrink with moisture, then I'll buy one.
All hats shrink some over time. Some more than others. Fur felt will suffer less shrinkage than wool. If you want to prevent your hat from shrinking, buy a hat stretcher. You can order them from David Morgan's web site (http://www.davidmorgan.com) for about $15. They keep your hat sized correctly when you're not wearing it.
