Lack of Color Size Guide

What Is My Hat Size?

We have a few simple instructions to make sure you measure your head properly and purchase the perfect size hat for YOU. Ideally you will need a tape measure and maybe some assistance from another person to ensure accuracy. Another backup method (if you don't have a tape measure) is to use a piece of ribbon or string and a straight ruler.

How Would You Like To Wear Your Hat?

There are two options listed below and it is essential to measure your hat to fit like your preferred option as there are significant differences.

Option 1 – Halo

1. Simply get your cloth measuring tape and place it around your head over your occipital bone (the furthest part on the back of your head).

2. Bring the measure around to the front of your head. About 5 mm above your ears and position it at the top of your forehead (beginning of hairline).

Option 2 – Traditional

1. Simply get your cloth measuring tape and place it around your head over your occipital bone (the furthest part on the back of your head).

2. Bring the measure around to the front of your head. About 5 mm above your ears and position it in the center of your forehead, or just above the eyebrows (depending on where you want your hat to sit).
Check what size your measuring tape says. Make sure when measuring, the tape is not too loose or too tight. If in between sizes, we recommend going up in size. E.g. if you measure 58 cm and there is no 58 cm in the style you are after, we recommend going up to size 59 cm.
*If you are using a ribbon or string and a straight ruler, follow the same method as above, pinching the string in the spot where the two ends meet on your forehead then lay it flat against the ruler to get the measurement.

Quick Tip

There is no such thing as a perfect fit. You must ensure your hat fits the way YOU want it to. It is entirely a matter of personal preference and whatever feels right to you. A tighter fitting hat stays on better for people who are active – think a festival or day at the beach, your hat will also sit higher on your head. A looser fitting hat is more comfortable to wear for extended periods of time (4+ hours) and will sit lower on your head.
