What is the best way to determine my hat size?
As hat sizes are somewhat inconsistent throughout the industry (one company's size 7 ½ could be vastly different from another's), it would probably be best to measure.
A few tips for correctly finding your head size:
- Get a friend's help! It makes it easier.
- You should measure the circumference of your head half way up your forehead and one finger’s width above your ears. Pull the tape to about the tightness you would like to wear a hat (you can use a string and then measure it if you don't have a tape), but put a finger between the tape and your head to allow for a little room (it’s best not to measure with just the tape measure pulled tight around your head, or you might end up getting a hat that is too tight). Take this measurement 3 times or until you get a consistent reading.
- Once you have a consistent measurement, you can view the Size Chart to determine which size hat to order.
