Hat Size and Chart

Hat Size Chart

BEST PRACTICES!

If you are new to wearing sized hats it is always a good idea to visit your nearest mall and try on a few.  That way you know the fit and what your size is. 

  • Most hat sizes have only 3/8th of an inch difference between them, so just a 1/4 inch makes a big difference in the fit of a sized / fitted hat.

  • If you are a hat person, order your usual North American hat size. Our sizing is the same. The chart gives our standard hat sizing and the corresponding European sizes.

  • If you tell us a stetson or resistol in a size 7 3/8 is a little tight/loose that is information that helps us fine tune the fit for you.

  • If you own a good hat, and can’t remember the size, turn the sweatband down and look at the underside. Most good hat makers will write key info on the back, including the hat size.

  • If you only know your hat size in cm, find the corresponding hat size at right to order, then add your size in cm to the production notes as you put your hat order together.

soft tape measure

If you wish to confirm your hat size by measuring your head 

  • You’ll need a friend, and a soft tape measure to measure with. You know – the type the fella uses to measure your trouser inseam.

  • Look straight ahead and have your helper measure your head. Using the soft tape – they should measure over your hair, just above your ears, and a half inch above your eye brows.

  • Make sure the tape is slightly slack – but not loose. You should be able to feel the tape but it should not be tight – or the fit will be as well! Measure twice – to be sure. BUT ONCE AGAIN NEVER MEASURE TIGHT.

  • Match your head measurement to the closest corresponding hat size and enter it in the production notes section of the order.

WHEN YOU GET YOUR HAT

Your hat comes with a couple of  felt stays that slide up under the sweat band should the hat be slightly loose. They act as a shim. And should the hat be a touch snug the hat stretcher that comes with it will solve that. And if worse comes to worse, we will get the hat back and re-block it to the right size. We make sure that all clients get a hat that fits.
