Women's hat sizes are fairly intuitive. The average women's head size measures around 57cm. If you are unsure of your hat size the Gigi Pip small/medium hat would be the best starting point. The small/medium hat size is made to fit 57cm + can be adjusted down to 55cm. If you know you have a slightly larger head go with the 59cm size. As far as Gigi Pip sizing goes this is a medium/large, made to fit a 59cm head size + then can be adjusted down to 57cm. The largest size Gigi Pip offers is a 61 cm, labeled as an XL, like our other sizes the 61 can be sized down to 59 cm. For women who feel they have a slightly smaller head than normal we recommend an XS which begins at 55cm + can be sized down to 53 cm. In select styles we offer kids sizing which begins at 53 cm + can be adjusted to 51 cm.
In short- the most common hat size is a S/M (57cm). While this is the most common hat size, remember that properly sizing your Gigi Pip hat will ensure the best fit.
There are two primary methods of measuring your hat size + are based on the style in which you wear your hat. You will need to take both measurements (shown below) + then use the larger of the two measurements to determine your hat size. Once you've received your hat, you can decide how you would like to wear it + adjust your hat size accordingly.
TIP: If you don't have a textile measuring tape, use a string or piece of yarn to measure the distance around your head. After you have marked the yarn around your head, lay it out flat on the ground or table + measure the straightened out piece of yarn with a measuring stick or regular measuring tape.
Adjustable Inner Band Instructions
Flip up the sweatband to find the Velcro tab + pull to tighten. Velcro the ribbon back in place to secure your desired fit. The adjustable band can adjust the hat up to 5 cm when necessary! Some helpful tips about our adjustable inner band-
Hat Sizing Tape Instructions
Hat sizing tape is an additional option for tightening the fit of your hat. Place the foam tape on the inside of your hat, behind the sweatband, with the sticky side facing towards the hat wall. Wrap the tape completely around the hat for maximum size decrease or cut tape length in half for a more moderate decrease. Size to fit prior to removing the adhesive cover. Once the fit is correct, remove the adhesive cover, press firmly into place, and wa-lah.

You might see "Old City" and think that this fine felt fedora hat is about playing checkers in the park, reading the newspaper and catching an early dinner at the Sizzler. While we enjoy a good board game with chums, sports page and steak-'n-shrimp special as much as the next guy, the Old City isn't about that at all.
As a matter of fact, this hat's namesake has more culture, history and depth per square inch than probably any other place on US soil. Like the man that places the Old City on his head, the real magic is behind what you see, told in the stories and etched in the volumes. Can't be faked. Can't be bought on its own. It has to be earned.
No, this hat ain't Vegas. It's Old Town Philly.
The Old City quarter of Philadelphia hasn't stuck around this long just because. It was built to last, built to mean something. Old City, the hat, was built in a similar way. Made almost entirely by hand with 100% Australian wool, this hat knows that details matter and that what matters most isn't its creation, purchase or even unboxing — it's what comes in the months, years and decades after.
This Old City features a 1 1/4" golden brown grosgrain band, but we also have an Old City that rocks a thin 3/8" black band.
Brim: 2 1/2"
Crown: 4 1/2"
Band: 1 1/4" nylon grosgrain with bow
Side note: This hat fits true to size.
