Finding the Perfect Fitting Hat

There's something about a stylish, perfectly fitting hat that speaks volumes about a person's style and confidence.

However, most high-quality hats come in specific sizes, and it can be challenging to know which size is best for your head.

We put together this guide to teach you how to measure your head correctly and other tips to help you find the perfect style and size hat for your head

Why Measuring Your Head is Important

A large part of finding the perfect hat is finding a hat that fits your head just right. A hat that fits properly can enhance the features of your face and compliment your outfit.

However, an ill-fitting hat might only make it out of your closet once a year simply because it’s not comfortable or you don’t like the way it looks.

The best-looking hat in the world can't be worn and enjoyed if it doesn't fit you properly and it slides all over your face.

Steps for Measuring Your Hat Size

First you'll need to grab a soft measuring tape or a piece of string and a measuring device like a ruler or firm tape measure.

Then wrap the soft tape or loose string around your head where you want your hat to sit.

  1. We recommend about 1/4 to 1/2 inches above your ear and 3/4 to 1 inches above your brow line. *(see Figure A below)
  3. If you pull your tape or string too tightly you'll have a overly tight fitting hat, so leave a little breathing room

With your finger, pinch and hold where the end of the soft measuring tape or string intersects with itself to mark your measurement.

Now record your measurement!

  1. PRO TIP: Use centimeters because it is often more accurate than inches
  2. If you're using a string, run it along the length of your ruler as many times as necessary to get a complete measurement

Measure again!

Always measure at multiple times until you get the same measurement twice
