How to find your hat size?
To measure your head circumference, take a sewing measuring tape or a string, and wrap it around your head just above the ears. Please stick your finger under the tape so there is a little room and there you have your hat size! If you fall between measurements go for the next size up. Then select your hat size just below the price on the product page.
