WHAT'S YOUR WEARING STYLE? 

Wearing a hat is all about personal preference and finding what style feels most like you. 

There are two ways to wear your hat - 

 

TRADITIONAL 

This is the traditional way of wearing a hat. If this is the way you like to wear your hat, make sure to use these directions to measure. 

1. Take a cloth measuring tape and place it around your head. Make sure it is resting on the center part of the back of your head and to the front where it should sit just above your eyebrows. 

2. Check the measurement of the tape wrapped around your head. Hats sizing is in CM. If you are in-between sizes, we suggest sizing up. Some hats are as set and other hats have an adjustable band incase the hat is too large. 

 

HALO

This is the halo style way of wearing a hat. If you like to wear your hat a little farther back on your head, this is the perfect option for you! 

1. Take a cloth measuring tape and place it around your head. Make sure it is resting on the furthest part of the back of your head and to the front where it should sit a little back past or on your hairline. 

2. Check the measurement of the tape wrapped around your head. Wearing a hat Halo style is usually a smaller hat size than wearing a hat traditionally. Hats sizing is in CM. If you are in-between sizes, we suggest sizing up. Some hats are as set and other hats have an adjustable band incase the hat is too large.

- Make sure to read the description of the hat you would like to purchase. It should have details on size or if the hat is equipped with an adjustable inner band.
