How to Measure Your Head

  1. Grab a soft measuring tape or a piece of string (like twine or a shoelace) and a ruler or measuring tool
  2. Wrap a soft tape or string around your head to measure about 1/4 to 1/2 inch above your ear and about 3/4 to an 1" inch above your brow line (see image)
    • Mark the tape or your string, where it intersects, with your finger.
  3. Record your measurement in inches or centimeters (centimeters is often more accurate)
    • If you're using a string, run it along side the ruler as many times as necessary to get a complete measurement
  4. MEASURE AGAIN!
    • Always measure more than once until you get the same number twice
  5. Find your size in the chart for the perfect fit

    Highly Overpriced

    Decent tourist hat, but most serious hat wearers ( daily and have had numerous hats) have found that the quality is more in line with $70-$80 hats from competition m. Also Seagrass hat should sell for no more than $40. Still good for 2 week vacation. Never Worn Again!!!

    To man wanting a lining----Remember this is a $80 hat not a $300 -$400 one

    Fantastic hat, even better service

    I bought a Panama hat from these folks in the run up to a vacation in west Texan (Big Bend National Park, El Paso and more). I wanted something comfortable that breathed and shaded my face.

    It was shipped via UPS, who messed things up, tracking the creation of the shipping label, but no other activity.

    A couple of days before my departure, I called and said "can you put a hold on that shipment, I don't want it sitting on my doorstep for 2 weeks?" The service guy said "hey, the hat's gone, but how about I express you another hat today so you have something for the trip?"

    Both hats arrived the same day, right before my trip (I've sent the second hat back).

    The hat is comfortable, cool (temperatures reached 106 degF) and fits like a charm.

    They've made a customer for life (not that I buy hats very often). I'm telling all my friends (well anyone I suspect is hat-seeking) about American Hat Makers

    Great Value !

    I have several Panama hats. Unfortunately they don't last long if you wear them every day. This hat is made to last. This hat will outlast my 25 yo Stetson.

    Well Done!

    Good afternoon & thank you for the note! I have other hats and am pleased with their comfort & quality. I didn't give much thought to it until I was at an event where there were others that were avid ones to have a hat on. I had a number of them asking just where did I get the one I had on & if I was happy with it? Job well done guys, keep up the great work & styling ~ JG

    Nice Panama but no option for a silk lining.

    Nice straw hat. Good style and excellent brim length. Only 3 stars because it was not

    available with a lining, and no lining is available. A premium quality hat should have that option even with an up-charge. Give the buyer the option/.

    Works well

    A good quality hat that works well. Once I get steamed and shaped to my preferred shape it'll be perfect.
