First, get yourself a tape measure made from a flexible material like cloth, fabric, or bendable plastic.
Wrap the tape around your head, making sure you measure above your ears at the area where you prefer to wear your hat. Be sure the tape is above your eyebrows.
Although it is a matter of personal choice, a good spot to measure is the widest part of your head, as that’s where a hat often fits the best. When you get a measurement, consult the charts below to figure out your size.
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.
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.
CHECKING YOUR HAT'S FIT
- Measure your head and consult our size chart
- Your hat should sit above your eyebrows and not obstruct your sight
- Allow about a finger of space between your hat and your head
- Aim for a snug (not tight) fit
