Sizing

Sizing:

You’ve found the perfect hat style, now you need the perfect fit. Finding your hat size takes just a few steps. 

How do I find my hat size?

Hats are typically measured in centimeters using the inside circumference of the hat’s crown where the sweatband resides. In order to find your preferred hat size, you will need a cloth tape measure or a piece of string or yarn and a standard ruler or tape measure. 

Our hat sizes include Small (55cm), Medium (57cm) and Large (59cm). If you are in-between sizes, we always recommend you size up as our hats are very stiff and do not have a lot of give. We provide each order with hat filler that will reduce the size of your hat by 1cm to 2.5cm. 

When taking your measurements, keep in mind there is no perfect fit. It all comes down to personal preference. Think about when and where you wear your hat most and if you prefer a tighter or looser fit hat.

Ways to measure your head:

There are two ways to wear your Wander Hat Co. wide brim hat: the traditional style and the halo style. Each way requires a different measurement. We recommend measuring both ways then choosing the larger measurement when determining your size to give you the option to switch between styles.

The Traditional Style 

 

The traditional style of wearing a wide brim hat is to have the front tip low on the forehead just above your eyebrows. This allows the hat to sit nearly level with the ground. 

To measure for this style, take your measuring tape or string and start  ½ inch to 1 inch above your eyebrows depending on how low you like to wear your hats. Keep the tape as level to the ground as possible as you wrap it around the back of your head to the starting point. 

Record your measurement to the nearest centimeter. Size up if you are in-between sizes. 

If you are using a piece of string to measure, lie the string on a flat surface after you’ve wrapped it around your head and measure it with a ruler or standard measuring tape. 

The Halo Style 

 

The halo style creates a halo-like illusion on your head. The front of your hat is raised slightly allowing the hat to sit on the back of your head. 

To measure for this style, take your tape measure or string and start just above your hairline. Wrap it around the back of your head having it pass just above your neck to the front of your head at the starting point. The string at the front of your head will be higher than the back.

Record your measurement to the nearest centimeter. Size up if you are in-between sizes. 

This measurement will be smaller than the traditional style. We recommend using the larger of the two measurements. 

If you are using a piece of string to measure, lie the string on a flat surface after you’ve wrapped it around your head and measure it with a ruler or standard measuring tape.

Can I adjust my Wander Hat Co. hat?

Our hats do not have drawstrings. We provide hat filler that can be placed between the inner band and the hat for a more customized fit. The hat filler will be included with each hat.
