MEASURE YOUR HAT SIZE
HOW TO FIND YOUR CORRECT HAT SIZE
Even the most accurate measurement of your head (which we will teach you here) doesn’t always mean the hat you receive will be a perfect fit. There are many factors that can get in the way of receiving the perfect fit on the first try. One is the use of natural materials. Sometimes leather or certain straw hats for example can be slightly thicker or thinner with each batch of material, even when sewing a hat the technician can use a little bit less or more pressure and the size will be slightly affected. So hat sizing isn’t an exact science but an accurate measurement of your head is a good place to start. That along with working with a hat brand that cares about you getting the perfect hat for you.
THINGS TO CONSIDER
Does the hat brand you are considering offer free sizing tape in case the hat is slightly too large?
Does the hat brand offer hassle free, free returns in case the hat doesn’t fit for any reason?
Does the hat brand have a crew of hat experts to help you in case there is a sizing problem?
LETS GET STARTED ON YOUR HAT SIZE
- Use a soft measuring tape or a piece of string (not elasticized or stretchy).
- Place the tape measure or string on your forehead and measure the circumference about 1/2 inch or 1.5cm above your ears, about where your hat would sit. If you have another hat that shows the size, you can use that information instead.
- Check the length of the tape measure or string to determine your size. (if using a string, hold it up against a ruler)
- Use the size charts on the product pages to find your perfect fit. For example, if your measurement comes to 22 inches or 56cm, then you would choose a size Medium hat.
*If you fall in between sizes, choose the next biggest size. We will send two free size inserts with every hat ordered, just incase your hat needs a slight reduction. If you need more than 2 please reach out we can send you more.
