Ever had your heart sink when the hat you ordered finally arrives and you realize it sits a little loose and droops forward whenever you look down? We get your pain so that's why all our hats are designed with two tiny but extremely useful ribbon strings.
You may be wondering what the strings do or, unsurprisingly, noticing them for the first time. These are marvellous little things and are quick hacks for hat fillers but given the countless questions we've gotten about our hat fit, we decided to do a long overdue tutorial on how to get the perfect fit with the strings.
First off, the trick lies in tying the perfect knot. Not a dead knot but one which you can quickly tie or untie as many times as you need to achieve that flawless fit! Once you've mastered the art of knot tying, there's no going back to hats without strings!
Without further adieu, let's jump right into the tutorial and follow each step and its photo illustration below.
Step 1: Place the part of the hat with the strings nearest to you and prop the head band up. Take note of the strings labelled 1 & 2.
Step 2: Pull strings 1 & 2 in the direction of the arrows to tighten the band. Place string 1 diagonally across the hat, followed by string 2. Note that string 2 will sit on string 1.
Step 3: Bring string 2 towards you by looping it under string 1.
Step 4: Bring string 1 down.
Step 5: Make a bunny ear loop with string 2 and hold it between your thumb and index finger.
Step 6: Wrap string 1 around the loop. This will create a hole between the loop of string 2 and string 1 wrapped around. Now pull string 1 through the hole to hold the loop in place.
Step 7: And...we're done! Just remember string 1 is for tightening. Don't fret if the band does not fit well and needs another adjustment - just pull string 2 and the loop will be undone.
Remember to tuck the strings below the black band and you're good to go. Congratulations on achieving the perfect fit!
