Hat Sizing

Determining Your Hat Size

Step by step directions how to measure your head in order to determine your correct hat size.

Use a soft tape measure (or string that you can hold up to a standard tape measure) to determine your head’s circumference.

Step One

Use a soft tape measure (or string that you can hold up to a standard tape measure) to determine your head’s circumference.

Place the string or tape around your head above your ears, and across the eyebrows, measuring your head exactly where the hat will sit.

Step Two

Place the string or tape around your head above your ears, and across the eyebrows, measuring your head exactly where the hat will sit.

Step Three

Hold the tape firmly, but not too tightly. If you fall between measurements go for the next size up.

How To Adjust

Most of our brims have a built-in fit adjustor. Just pull back sweatband inside the crown of the hat to reveal the adjuster tab. Pull to your liking and affix to the velcro tab. Adjust as needed for the perfect fit.

Face Shapes

Which Face Shape Are You?

Face Shape No. 1

Oval

Try to find hats with medium to wide brims and fitted crowns as they will help to make sure your face does not appear longer.

Face Shape No. 2

Round

Hats with angles and stiff brims like fedoras will work best on a round face, as they can help emphasize your bone structure.

Face Shape No. 3

Diamond

Look for hats that create the illusion of length, especially with medium-sized brims, or by wearing hats angled further back at the base of your hairline.

Face Shape No. 4

Square

Slouchy, floppy brimmed hats and circular styles will usually work best on square face shapes, they will help soften your angles.

How-To Style

Halo

For a casual look, simply position the hat slightly to the rear of the top of your head.

Tilt

A bolder styling option — tilt your hat around 15-20° to either side of your head.

Standard

Tried and true. The Standard position is directly on top of your head, but be sure it’s not too low on your forehead.
