BEST PRACTICES! Just a 1/4 inch makes a big difference in the fit of a sized / fitted hat. So if you are new to wearing sized hats it is always a good idea to visit your nearest mall and try some on so you know the fit and what your size is.

  • If you are a hat person, order your usual North American hat size. Our sizing is the same. The chart at right gives the standard head measurement for each specific hat size. For example If you normally wear a size 7 3/8 your head measurement is 23 3/8″
  • Remember the fit of your hat is only as good as the size and/or measurement you supply us with – so take due care for accuracy.
  • If you only know your hat size in cms, add it to the production notes as you put your hat order together.
  • An accurate and correct head measurement helps us fine tune the fit for each particular client.
  • You’ll need a friend, and a soft tape measure to measure your head. 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 (at right) and make a note of it for when you order.
  • If your measurement is not listed pick the closest and we will adjust it when Sonja confirms your production details within a day of your hat order being received.
