Tips to Determine Your Hat Size

September 09, 2022

Shopping for hats can be frustrating when you're unsure of your hat size. Many people don't think of their accessories requiring sizing, but hats are an exception to that rule, primarily if purchasing a high-quality Poleberg cap. When picking a new hat is critical to determine your hat size. 

Finding the perfect hat is about much more than style, though that's a significant part of the process. To truly find the ideal hat for your head, you've got to determine your hat size first. When a hat doesn't fit correctly, it will likely end up placed in the back of your closet or given away to friends and family.

There's no point wasting your time and money on purchasing hats that don't fit when we can easily tell you how to determine your hat size. Hat sizing doesn't require many tools, and it's definitely not difficult, so let's get to it!

Tips to Determine Your Hat Size

How to Determine Your Hat Size

If you're sick of purchasing hats that don't fit you, you're in the right place. You'll need a few household items to get started, including:

  • A measuring tape or a 25-inch string
  • Ruler
  • Hat-sizing tape and chart

You can quickly locate anything on this list that you don't already have at most major retailers or, in some cases, the dollar store. Once you've gathered all your supplies, it's time to measure your head.

  1. Utilizing your measuring tape or string, measure your head around, pulling the string or tape ends together until they overlap. One inch above the ears is the best location for accuracy.
  2. When you have your head circumference, note it by pinching the string or tape where it overlaps and place it next to your ruler.
  3. Utilizing an online hat sizing chart, take your ruler measurement and find the corresponding number on the chart.
  4. We recommend sizing up around 1/8 of an inch if you fall between sizes in our exclusive Poleberg collections

Utilizing Hat Sizing Tape

If you have a collection of hats that are a bit too big for you, you'll want to consider utilizing hat sizing tape. Hat tape can be a beneficial tool to help your hats fit your head. Hat sizing tape fits on the inner sweatband at the front of your hat, right behind the brim.

It's a fantastic product that will help your hats fit snugly to your head. If you've got a hat that you really love, but it's too large, don't give it away. Instead, try hat sizing tape, and (hopefully) it will fit perfectly!

Of course, hat sizing tape isn't a cure-all, and it won't fix a hat that's way too big. Also, it can't do much when you're stuck with a hat that's too small. However, it's a great tool to have on hand!
