OK, ready to rally

rallyhat

My Spaten beer hat arrived in this morning’s mail and I think I know why it was for sale on Ebay.

It’s marked L/XL, but I can easily pull it down over my ears.

My hat size is 7¼, which is on the large side. I wear an XXL in a Schuberth motorcycle helmet, so I think the factory in China where this was made got the sizing a little wrong.

I was able to shrink it a bit by washing it in hot water and setting the dryer on High Heat, but it’s still kinda roomy. Maybe Maria can sew something into the hatband to take up the slack. Or I could just beat lumps on my head with a hammer.

Anyway, I expect to have the problem solved by the time the first rally rolls around.
