SIZING & STYLING

We make all our hats to order and to measure, fitting all shapes and head sizes.

HOW TO MEASURE

Getting the right fit is very personal and important and its well worth the time to get your measurements correct. There are several techniques to measuring your head the most accurate is using a cloth measuring tape also called a “tailors tape”.

(XS) 21 ¾”
(S) 22 ½”
(M) 23 ¼”
(L) 23 ¾”

Another way is to use a fitted baseball hat that is sized usually in the range of 7 ” – 7 ”.

Please keep in mind how and where you wear your hat (low on the forehead, in windy environments, loose over the hair).

Take a tape measure around the widest part of your head; from the forehead around the widest part of your head and back to meet the forehead.  Don’t pull too tight on the tape or your hat will be too tight.  It is useful to insert your pinky under the tape to allow for a little room when measuring.

WEARING TO ASCOT?

Royal Enclosure

Hats should be worn; however, a headpiece which has a solid base of 4 inches (10cm) or more in diameter covering a sufficient area of the head is acceptable as an alternative to a hat.

Fascinators are not permitted

All other Enclosures (Windsor optional)

A hat, headpiece or fascinator should be worn at all times.

 

WEARING TO A WEDDING?

Traditionally women wear their hats and fascinators on the right-hand side, however, this is not strictly necessary in a modern setting. You can also wear it on your parting side allowing more hair to be visiable on the opposite side.

Hats and fascinators are generally worn to the side of the head and slightly forward.
