1. Measure the distance around your head at the position where your hat normally rests, using a soft tape measure (dressmaker/tailor type). This is usually done right above the ears and across the forehead. Find the measurement and corresponding hat size on the chart below that comes the closest to your usual hat size. Remember to include both your usual hat size and specific tape measurement (to the nearest 1/8") with your order.

2. What head shape are you?

  • Long Oval : Hats fit tighter front to back or are loose on sides.
  • Round Oval : Hats fit tighter on sides, and more often than not, brims flip up in the back
  • Regular Oval : No pressure points. A perfect head shape. Extremely unusual!

3. Please let us know if you have any special fit problems that you are aware of. We will be more than happy to help you determine what size and shape are best for your head.
