How Do I Measure My Head ?
When buying a hat online all we need is your head size
Here is the best & easy way to measure your head :
Use your tape measure or a piece of string around your head about 1/8" above your ear, across your forehead, completely circling your head.
Hold the tape firmly, but not too tightly.
Basically you need to measure your head exactly where your hat will sit.
If your measurement falls between sizes, choose the next largest size.
Small : Head size 54 - 55cm ( 21 inches )
Medium : Head size 56 - 57cm ( 22 inches )
Large : Head size 58 - 59cm ( 23 inches )
