Most hats for men are sized from 6 3/4 to 7 3/4 or from small to extra large (sometimes xx-large). Most companies only make hats up to 7 5/8 (extra large), although we specify when hats are available in bigger sizes. When choosing a size for yourself, please measure your head and follow the guidelines of our chart. If you're unsure, please provide us with the centimeter size of your head so that we may determine your head size. Stretching a hat or adding a liner can most often size hats that are slightly big, or slightly small, but not enough to go up or down a whole size. We send liner with all hats that have an inner band so that our customers can make any adjustments at home that may be needed.
Unlike men's hats, women's hats most often come in one size. The size of a women's hat can vary from very small to very big. Most women's hats can be sized down with a liner (women have been doing this for years with their hats). We always include a liner with our women's lined hats, and we ask that you let us know the centimeter size of your head, so that we may ensure a hat can be sized for you. (if you're an extra small and have ordered a hat that fits as an extra large, we may suggest a similar, but better fitting hat). Since most women fall between a small and medium (not all, just most), we make distinctions with our unsized ladies hats as Sandra size (with or without liner) and Sarah size, at least for the hats that would fit us.
Sandra's Size: Head measures 7 1/8, goes up to 7 1/4 with curly hairstyle. Sandra has some large men's hats that are sized down with a liner for the optimal fit.
Sarah's Size: Head measures 6 7/8. Sarah wears size small. Her thinner, short hairstyle never interferes with her hats or her head size. Sarah can wear some medium hats comfortably with a liner.
Please follow the guidelines of our hat sizing chart when ordering.

PLEASE NOTE - THERE ARE SLIGHT VARIATIONS BETWEEN COMPANIES. INCLUDE YOUR SIZE IN CENTIMETRES WITH YOUR ORDER. PLACE MEASURING TAPE AROUND YOUR HEAD WITH THE SAME PRESSURE YOU DESIRE FOR YOUR HAT (NOT TOO TIGHTLY) A HAT IS MORE LIKELY TO SHRINK THAN STRETCH, SO PLEASE GO WITH THE SLIGHTLY BIGGER SIZE (WE INCLUDE A LINER FOR YOU), THAN THE SMALLER SIZE IF YOU’RE IN BETWEEN.
Goorin hats are bigger than average, so please consult with the Goorin chart before ordering a Goorin hat:
