Measuring Guide

Your hat should sit mid-forehead just above your ears. To ensure the best

fit it’s important to provide an accurate measurement of the circumference of

your head. Using a tailor’s soft tape measure follow these four steps:

Step 1

Identify the two widest points of your head. At the back of your head this is where you feel a slight increase in your skull and at the front you will find it in the middle of your forehead just above your eyebrows.

Step 2

Take your tape measure and wrap it around these two points to meet overlapping at the centre of your forehead.

Step 3

Adjust the tape measure to about 1 centimetre above the top of your ears either side of your head.

Step 4

When the tape measure is in the correct position, read the measurement in centimetres.

To confirm the accuracy of this measurement repeat this process three times.

 

When measuring don’t pull the tape too tightly, let it sit comfortably on your head. You do not want your hat to be too tight so it’s best to err on the side of caution and go for a looser fit as this can, if necessary, be rectified later with a hat reducer strip.

 

You’ll find it easier if someone can do the measuring for you. If this is not possible you can do it yourself facing a mirror to read the measurement off your tape measure.

 

Remember, measuring your head isn’t an exact science or a guarantee of hat fit.

For our Ready-To-Wear hats, we offer four standard sizes:

 

S      54-55cm

M     56-57cm

L      58-59cm

Each hat is supplied with hat size reducing strips that will take your hat down approximately 1cm.
