​Measuring Your Head for a Fitted Hat

Posted on Jan 29th 2023

Measuring Your Head for a Fitted Hat:

  1. Find a flexible tape measure: A cloth tape measure works best, but a string and ruler can also be used.
  2. Measure the circumference of your head: Place the tape measure around your head, just above your eyebrows and ears. Make sure it's level all the way around.
  3. Record the measurement: Write down the number in inches or centimeters to the nearest eighth of an inch or millimeter.
  4. Compare to hat size chart: Most hat brands have a size chart that corresponds to head circumference measurement. Match your measurement to the closest size on the chart.
  5. Try the hat on: If possible, try the hat on before purchasing to ensure a comfortable fit. Adjust the hat if necessary by using the strap or buttons in the back.

Note: Some hat brands may have slightly different size charts, so be sure to check the manufacturer's specifications before making a purchase.
