Most do not know their hat size, or even how to determine which size they should choose.

  1. 1

    Have a friend measure the circumference of your head with a tape measure. The tape should cross just above your eyebrows, and about ¼ inch above your ears.

  2. 2

    Write down the measurement where the tape measure meets, to the nearest 1/8 inch. This measurement is the circumference of your head.

  3. 3

    Divide the measurement in inches by 3.1428. The quotient will give you your U.S. hat size.
