Hat Size Guide

Women’s Hat Sizes

In general, women’s hats are sized in one size fits most sizes or OSFM. This means that the style is manufactured in a single size with the adaptability to suit various head sizes ranging from 21.5 inches to 22.25 inches in circumference.

With that being said, actual hat sizes vary from designer to designer, so some hats will fit a smaller or bigger head depending on the style. Thankfully, most of these styles will have an adjustable inner drawstring or band to keep the hat in place and offer flexibility in fit if it runs a little large. 

Men’s Hat Sizes

Men’s hats and caps are generally sized in types: numerical sizing and alpha sizing (small through extra large). In some cases, you may find men’s hats listed as OSFM, or one size fits most. These OSFM hats will generally fit heads with a circumference of 21.5 inches to 23 inches or a medium/large.

When you’re shopping for hats sized in alpha or numerical sizing, the first thing you’ll want to do is carefully measure your head following our measuring guide below. Once you’ve determined the circumference of your head, use our hat size chart to determine which size to order. 

Measuring Your Head

Determine hat size by using a flexible tape measure, or a string and ruler. You may also measure your head by printing out our handy custom measuring tool. Measure from the back of your head bringing the ends together at the center of your forehead right above your eyebrows. Use the hat size chart below to determine your size, rounding to the nearest eighth of an inch as necessary. It is important that you measure your head, even if you’ve found a great fit with a certain size in the past, as hat sizes do vary brand by brand. Remember, fitting your head isn’t an exact science or a guarantee of hat fit. View our convenient hat sizing guide for men and women for more information.

I wear this hand made for belfry pork pie in any dressing occasion, casual, classic, trendy, or stylish and get great flattering comments. I must purchase more. the pork pie is made from wool but all my crowd thinks its FUR FELT DUE TO THE SHINE IT GIVES OFF. ONE SUPER BAD HAT

Sean Donohue

Was given as a gift. Fit perfectly.

John Schweitzer

First time I wore it with a houndstooth jacket, someone I didn't know said, ""I like your look"". Reminds me of Van Morrison.

Mark Roman
Terrific looks and fit

Great look, and a very high quality hat: nicely built. I wear a 7-3/8 and the Large fits me very well. I enjoy the shape and style of this hat, and the wool material and hat band are both comfortable. Have compared this to similar widely available mass-market hats, and for construction, quality, and style this hat is the hands-down winner

Richard Lee
An Excellent Quality, Good Fitting, Great Looking Pork Pie!

The Diamond Pork Pie Looks Phenomenal! I've Had More Compliments Wearing This Hat Than Any Other! I Own 5 Pork Pies And This Has Become My Favorite, Just Beating My Stacey Adams Summer Reed Pork Pie. The Color Is A Warm Medium Sage That Works Well With Casual As Well As Business And Dress Clothes. I've Worn It To Work, Evenings Out And The Supermarket! Of My 9 Hats I Wear Regularly (different weights for different seasons) This Is One I Enjoy Most! It Is So Very Light For A Wool Hat. I Often Forget It Is On My Head! Thanks Hat In The Belfry!!
