How to Measure Hat or Cap Size?
What is the right size for a cap or hat? The circumference of the head determines the size of the hat. If the circumference measurement is 58,5cm, choose size 59. The best way to measure the circumference of the head is to use a soft, flexible, non-stretchable measuring tape. To ensure you measure the circumference of your head correctly, the tape measure needs to be over the middle of your forehead, just above your ears and sit midway at the back of your head. Do not pull the tape too tightly. If you find yourself in-between two sizes go for the bigger one. Check guide video!
