Stetson Education: How to Determine Your Hat Size

The best hats not only look good, they feel good. Comfort is key.

Your Stetson should be reasonably snug so that a light wind can’t blow it off

of your head, but it should not be so tight as to cause discomfort or distraction.

Before you buy, Stetson walks you through the steps to find your hat size.

Save this step-by-step guide to use when fitting yourself for your next Stetson.

HAT TIP: If the measurement is in between sizes on the hat size chart, choose the next larger size.

Hats can shrink with time from sweat and humidity.

Leather hats, straw hats, and felt hats can stretch a bit after use,

but you should still go bigger if in between sizes.

A slightly roomier hat is much more comfortable and easier to pad than a hat that’s too tight

and gives you a headache.
