Finding the Right Size Hat

MEASURE YOUR HEAD

Measuring for your head size is both an art and a science. You can use a tape measure (or a length of string that you will have to hold up to a tape measure) to determine the length. Place the string or tape around your head about 1/8" above your ear, across the mid-forehead, completely circling your head. Hold the tape firmly, but not too tightly. Basically you need to measure your head exactly where the hat will sit. If your measurement falls between sizes, choose the next largest size.

TIPS:

  • Measure several times to ensure you’re getting an accurate measurement.
  • Don’t pull the tape too tight; you always want to err on the side of having a little too much room.
  • If you fall between two sizes, we strongly recommend that you choose the larger in the interest of comfort.
  • Head sizes and shapes differ from region to region. The most common male size is 7-⅜ and the average hat size for females is 7-¼.

 

Please understand that hats are not unlike other apparel, in that sizes can vary somewhat from one manufacturer to another. We cannot guarantee that by following these instructions any assurance of a perfect fit.
