Finding the right hat starts with choosing the right style and color to fit your face shape, taste, and lifestyle, but it ends with the perfect fit. Too small, and your hat will sit awkwardly high on you head or feel uncomfortably tight. Too large, and it’ll sit too low, with visible extra space around the edges—not the look you’re going for.
As a rule of thumb, your Stetson should be reasonably snug so that a light wind can’t blow it off your head, but not be so tight as to cause discomfort or distraction.
Follow the steps below to ensure your new hat feels as good as it looks.
Using a tape measure, measure around your head about 1/8th of an inch above your ear, pressing firmly (but not too tight).
Translate your measurement into your hat size using the conversion chart below.
If your measurement falls between sizes, order the next largest size. You can always add a bit of padding behind the sweatband to achieve just the right level of snugness—and keep that proverbial gust of wind from doing any damage.
