Your Hat Size

What Is My Hat Size?

We have a few simple instructions to make sure you measure your head properly and purchase the perfect sized hat for YOU.

You will need a cloth tape measure. It also helps if you have assistance from another person to ensure accuracy. We recommend using a metric ruler and measuring your head in CM.

 

How Would You Like To Wear Your Hat?

There are two options listed below, Option 1 and Option 2 are both different, it is essential to measure your hat to fit like your preferred option as there are significant differences.

 

Option 1 – Halo

This is the “halo” style of wearing a hat. Choose this option if this is the way you will choose to wear your hat.

Man-hat

1. Simply get your cloth measuring tape and place it around your head over your occipital bone (the furthest part on the back of your head).

2. Bring the measure around to the front of your head. About 5 mm above your ears and position it at the top of your forehead (beginning of hairline).

Man-tape

Option 2 – Traditional

This is the “traditional” style of wearing a hat. Choose this option if this is the way you will choose to wear your hat.

Woman-hat

1. Simply get your cloth measuring tape and place it around your head over your occipital bone (the furthest part on the back of your head).

2. Bring the measure around to the front of your head. About 5 mm above your ears and position it in the centre of your forehead, or just above the eyebrows (depending on where you want your hat to sit).

Woman-tapeCheck what size your measuring tape says. Make sure when measuring the tape is not too loose or too tight. If in between sizes, we recommend going up in size. E.g if you measure 58 cm and there is no 58 cm in the style you are after, we recommend going up to size 59 cm. We also recommend adding a hat filler to your order if you are in between sizes as these can tailor the hat to fit your head perfectly.

 

Lack of Color Sizing:

(S) 55 CM. This is our smallest size and is only available in our new collection, Remember When…

If your head measures 53 cm – 54 cm, we recommend adding a hat filler to your order, as these reduce the size of your hat by 1-2.5 cm.

(S) 56 CM. This is our smallest size in most styles (excluding new collection).

(M) 57 CM. This is our medium size and is for an average sized head. This is the size we recommend as a ‘standard’ or ‘average’ fit.

(M-L) 58 CM. Is for a larger sized head (or an ‘average’ men’s head)

(L) 59 CM. Is for a large head. This is our new standard size L and is the largest size we offer in the new collection.

(XL) 60 CM. Is only available in selected styles, this is the largest size we currently offer.

All Lack of Color hats are uni-sex and can be worn by both men and women (but you didn’t need us to tell you that).

 

Quick Tips

There is no such thing as an overall correct fit. You must ensure your hat fits the way YOU want it to. It is entirely a matter of personal preference and whatever feels right to you.

A tighter fitting hat stays on better for people who are active – think a festival or day at the beach, your hat will also sit higher on your head.

A looser fitting hat is more comfortable to wear for extended periods of time (4+ hours) and will sit lower on your head.
