HOW DO I MEASURE MY HAT SIZE?
To find out your hat size, you need to measure the circumference of your head; to do this you will need a measuring tape and a mirror. Take the measuring tape and place it at the back of your head. Next, draw both sides of the tape to the front, just above the ears and over the eyebrows, bringing it together roughly in the middle of your forehead. Please be careful not to pull the tape measure too tight. You can now use a mirror to read off your head circumference.
We recommend rounding up the number you see to the next full centimetre (e.g. round 57.5 cm up to 58 cm). If you want to wear your hat or cap pulled a little further forward or down over your forehead, then add an extra centimetre to the head circumference measured. Women should take care to comb their hair back flat when measuring their head .
Our special tip: If you do not have a measuring tape to hand, you can also use any piece of cord or string and then place it against a ruler to find the size. Again, it is important to round up the size measured to the next whole number. Too small a hat can cause headaches, whereas if a hat is a little too big, the difference can be compensated for with hat foam or cork. These can be used to adjust the size correctly, Just ask when placing your order and we will include some free of charge.
For elongated head shapes, hat foam or cork should be placed on the sides, underneath the hat band. For rounder head shapes, we recommend placing hat foam or cork at the rear end of the lining. Hat foam or cork can alter the hat size by around 1 cm.
