Our hats come in sizes to fit almost anyone, from tiny infants to people with really big heads.

To pick the right size, we suggest you use one of these methods:

  • Roughing it. Use common household paraphernalia to measure your head.
  • Arts & crafts. For those of you who can't find some string, but love cutting out paper shapes.
  • Traditional. Know your hat size? Use our handy-dandy conversion chart.
  • Guess by age. For grandparents and other relatives.

Roughing it

Using a flexible tape measure, one made of cloth or plastic, measure your head. Measure all around your head, going just above the eyebrows and covering the tops of the ears. You can also use some string, and then measure the string with a ruler. (Just make sure the string isn't stretchy!)

in cm
infant 16-18 41-46
toddler 18-20 46-51
junior 20-23 51-58
adult 23-25 58-64
extra-large 25-28 64-71

Arts & Crafts

Here, we provide a do-it-yourself kit for measuring heads, with our exclusive, direct-reading size indicators. First, print this page and cut out these ruler segments. (This page is sized for Mac users. We'll have a PC version ready soon.)

Tape or glue the parts together, place the resulting ruler strip around your head as shown in the diagram (above) and read your hat size from the ruler strip.

(We're crossing our fingers that this works. You might want to double-check our inches with a ruler! We've gotten these two sizes of images to work on the Macs, PCs and printers we can find. Let us know what you think!)


If you know your hat size, you can translate it to one of our sizes.

adult 7 1/4 to 7 7/8 7 1/8 to 7 3/4 5 1/2 to 8
extra-large 8 or larger 7 7/8 or larger 8 1/2 or larger

Guess by age

If you're not within measuring distance of the head you're trying to fit a hat to, and you can't delegate the measurement task over the 'phone, try this age guide to our sizes.

Use your judgment in deciding where in these age ranges your kids are. Bigger kids need bigger hats, and kids' heads get bigger as they grow.

infant up to 6-8 months
toddler 8 months or 1 year to age 3 or 4
