The hat uses a medium weight fusible on one side interfacing on both brim pieces and an optional sew in piece on one of the brim pieces to help give extra support. We also use the same for the band. 

We also use a cord and a toggle to adjust the fit, or you can use a shoelace as well.  The inside of the lining has a small length of 1/8" or 3mm wide elastic sewn into the lining at the back.

We also have a limited supply of "Raw Material Kits" for this hat.  Learn more about the kits available here.
