Maybe an answer here? http://putthison.com/post/102882249030/four-favorite-overcoats-a-classic-mens-overcoat
Is Kroon a thang? I passed on one today ...
Yep. Big, expensive box. You might be able to buy one from a local hat dealer, or if you find a big enough box, make your own. Be sure to make a ring out of cardboard, styrofoam or whatever, that's just big enough for the crown to fit through. Put the hat in upside down so just the inner part of the brim is resting on the ring, then pad inside the crown all the way across the underside of the brim.That's what I did with a Borsalino that I sent overseas, and I got no...

One of those days. The buyer of my Kiton suit took a week to pay, then as soon as he got it, said it didn't fit, so he was returning it. Pretty sure he never even tried it on, but I gave him a refund, minus my stated 15% re-stocking fee. Now he's saying I did my math wrong.
