Hat Sizing

How to Measure Your Head for a Lillie & Cohoe Hat

The old adage, “measure twice and cut once,” applies here. You do the measuring and we do the cutting. Fitting a hat is a personal process: the fit needs to suit your hairstyle, how you like to wear your hat—pulled down low over the forehead or sitting up a bit more—and in what conditions, windy or otherwise. Take all this into account when you measure your head.

Use tailor’s tape, a flat cloth or plastic measuring tape to measure the circumference of your noggin, just above your ears. In lieu of tape, you can substitute a piece of string or a ribbon. Don’t pull the string or tape too tight and get someone else to do the measuring if possible. Measure the length of string against a ruler afterward.

If you are doing the measuring yourself, look in the mirror and take several measurements to ensure accuracy. It’s best not to use your other hats for size, as they may have a different size guide than ours. See the charts below for general guidelines.
