Title: GARMENT FITTING MECHANISM AND HAT INCORPORATING SAME
Abstract:
A fitting mechanism that provides users with a continuous range of sizing options. It may be used to fasten garments or accessories, particularly hats, in an inconspicuous manner, while being worn by the user. In a preferred embodiment, the fitting mechanism comprises a dual- sided guide track having slots to fit two slidably adjustable straps, each containing a plurality of serrated teeth and a raised tab. The fitting mechanism may be enclosed within a housing and affixed within the crown of a hat or within another suitable garment or accessory. A user may access the fitting mechanism while the item is being worn for the purpose of changing the inner circumference of the sizing of the garment so as to obtain a better fit.
