How to determine your hat size


If you do not know your hat size, carefully measure your head using a flexible (cloth/plastic) tape measure.tape-measure.jpg


To ensure you measure the circumference of your head correctly, the tape measure needs to be over the middle of your forehead, just above your ears and sit midway at the back of your head. Do not pull the tape too tightly unless you want your hat to be as tight. Measure yourself 2-3 times just to be as accurate as possible.


If you do not have a flexible tape measure, a piece of string will do (although not as accurate). Once you have measured your circumference and marked the string, lie it flat and measure it.


You now have your hat size!




IMPORTANT - please note that sizing is NOT accurately determined by the measurement of the inner band of an existing hat, as it will often appear to be 'smaller' than the actual size of the hat itself.
