Sizing & Fitting


Hat size is based on the circumference of the head. In order to determine your proper hat size, you must take a measurement of your head.

Using a tape measure, measure your head about one-half inch above your eyebrows where your hat will rest. Be certain that the tape measure is straight, not twisted. Alternatively, you can use piece of string to measure your head, and then measure the length of the string with a ruler. If you are not certain about size, or are between sizes, buy the larger size.

Use the chart below to determine your hat size based on the measurement you take.

Please understand that hats are like other apparel in that sizes can vary from one style to another. If your measurement falls between sizes, choose the next largest size.


1. How do I clean and care for my felt velour / beaver hat?

Remove dust and loose dirt with a soft brush, starting at the left side of the hat and brushing counter clockwise. A lint roll brush works too. If your hat gets wet, shake off the excess water. This will allow the hat to dry naturally.  If you follow these important instructions your hat will last a lifetime.

3. How do I clean and care for my straw hat?

Remove dust and loose dirt with a soft brush, starting at the left side of the hat and brushing counter-clockwise. If you need to remove something sticky, we recommend a small wet cloth and dab with water. Do not expose the hat to heat and water. This can cause the material to shrink.
