Q: How do I know what size hat I should wear?  

A: You can determine your size by measuring the circumference of your head in inches.  To measure your head, place a tape measure around the crown of your head.      

Wrap the tape measure around your entire head making sure to place it above the ears and straight across the forehead.  Make sure the measuring tape feels

comfortable around the head.  If it feels tight, then the hat will feel tight.
