Heads come in all sizes, and in a surprising variety of shapes. Although Akubra hats are adaptable, and will usually conform to differences in shape with a little wearing, it is essential that the size be correct for the head.
To determine your hat size, measure the circumference around your head, keeping the tape level and firm, across the temples and above the eyebrow ridges. Check the size chart given below. For in-between measurements use the next size up.
Measure round the head approximately 10mm (1/2") above the ears.
