When you buy a custom cowboy hat, it’s important to make sure that it fits you correctly. If the hat is too large or too small, it will look bad and it won’t be comfortable to wear. In this blog post, we will give you four tips on how to ensure that your cowboy hat fits you perfectly!
Measure Your Head
Use a measuring tape to get the most accurate measurement of your head. We recommend measuring from about ⅛” above your ear, across the mid-forehead, all the way around. Then use that measurement to see what size you are using our sizing chart.
Going Too Big Or Too Small Isn’t A Great Idea
A hat that is too big will slip, fall, and require near-constant adjustments. Any well-fitting hat should fit so perfectly that you almost forget that you’re wearing it. Conversely, getting a hat that is too small can end up giving you a headache. When you’re wearing your hat for many hours at a time, the last thing you want is to have it bothering you.
Consider Your Hair
If you have long hair, make sure to style it in the way that you’ll have it when you are going to be wearing your hat before measuring. If you don’t, you may find that your hat doesn’t fit correctly.
Come In For A Custom Fitting
We have an old French contraption called a conformateur that provides us with the most accurate sizing for your custom hat because it takes a number of measurements that allow us to create a perfect pattern. If you’re in Colorado, stop by to get a custom measurement to ensure your hat is going to fit the right way.
