Hat Sizing Guide: Determine Your Hat Size

You’ve found the perfect hat style, now it’s time to make sure it fits like a glove. Hats in the Belfry’s handy hat sizing guide makes shopping for hats online simple with women’s hat sizing, men’s hat sizing and tips for measuring your head with our custom measuring tool. This guide will walk you through the general size guidelines, types of men’s and women’s hats sizes, measurement suggestions and tips for measuring your head when sizing for hats that are sold in numerical and alpha sizes. Before you place your hat order, be sure to bone up on hat fitting.

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.

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.

Hat FAQs

It is important to keep hats away from direct sunlight as this can fade the color and damage the material. This is true for both wool and straw material.

Make sure to store the hat in a cool, dry place to avoid mildew and moisture damage.

Steam is your best bet for reshaping a fedora hat at home. Just like ironing presses wrinkles out of clothes, steaming coaxes crinkles and dents out of hats.

Too Small

Too Small, they have a phone number on the website but it tells you to email them. Hmmm......When you can't answer the phone then maybe???

Absolutely love this hat!! EASILY a five star but for one minor caveat...

LOVE this hat!
It has a very unique style, yet somehow retains many traditional elements (with the perfect amount of western thrown in for good measure). I'm kind of a hat addict (not quite on the level with Imelda's shoe addiction...but I digress :-) I looked at this hat off and on for some time, thinking to myself, "well it looks terrific but not sure it would look good on me?" If you have any such thoughts? Put them away and just buy one while you still can!!! It is way more attractive than the pictures look, and my wife agrees that it looks great on me!
Yeah, I can hear you saying, she's your wife so she "has" to say that! If you are thinking that...well, you just don't know my wife!!!! LOL
Long story short. I think this is my new favorite cool weather fedora!!!!!!

So, what exactly is my caveat?
Well, the top of the crown was not blocked perfectly. and the center "bump" at the top (not sure what it's called? ("goose peak" - maybe?) Any way, it's not completely centered. Not off by a whole lot & my wife thinks it still looks great. Also something I think I can probably fix with a little steam. My wife says it is not that noticable and just adds some "character" to the look. She may well be correct! But It still annoys me a little bit on a brand new Stetson....

Of all my hats though, it has still become my Fall/Winter favorite!
An Awsome fedora!!!!!!!

***** Ok, I am bumping this hat up to 5 Stars, where it should have been all along!!! I have not touched the little (and I admit it), overly picky "caveat", but have been wearing it A Lot, and I can honestly say that I have never received so many compliments on a hat!!!!

We are always happy when a new hat becomes the favorite hat & it's a bonus when the wife says you look good! A light steam should do wonders after shipping, if you need any tips for steaming you can email us at and we'll be happy to help.
