Choosing The Best Sun Hat
The Tilley hat fits more comfortably than other hats. It’s designed to be worn
low on your head and slightly loose. It should be held on by gravity, not by
uncomfortable pressure on your forehead!
When it’s windy, use the cord!
HOW TO MEASURE YOUR HEAD
Like footwear, your Tilley hat must be sized properly. To find your hat size, use a tape measure and draw it right around your head. For the best-looking and most comfortable fit, please make sure that the bottom of the tape touches right above your eyebrows while resting straight around your head. Hold it there comfortably and do not pull tight! Enter this measurement in the hat sizer tool in inches or centimetres. We’ll take it from there.
You may also refer to our Hat Sizing Chart below for an easy reference to your Tilley hat size.
If you already know your regular (not a Tilley) hat size, please order one size larger when you order your Tilley. For instance, if you’re sure you’re a 7¼, order a 7⅜.
HOW DO I FIND OUT?
Find a piece of string or a fabric tape measure. Any flexible string or fabric you can find around the house will work.
Do not use a metal tape measure.
HOW DO I MEASURE MYSELF?
Wrap your measuring tool around your head. The measuring tool should be level and it should rest just above your eyebrows.
Do not measure your head on an angle, or wrap the measuring tool too tightly around your head.
FIND OUT YOUR SIZE
Compare that measurement against a ruler to find your size.
SHOP BY FACE SHAPE
We know our customers are unique with different face shapes. That’s why we have various hats, to find the perfect one for you.
Hats off to you, most any hat will do you proud from berets to ball caps! Choose hats with a medium crown size like our TWF1 Mountain Fedora.
Choose wide round brims, berets, beanies, ball caps, flat caps, floppy curvy hats and bowlers. Avoid fedoras and angular hats.
Say yes to asymmetrical hats like beanies, long sock hats, high crown fedoras, and anything angular. Avoid deep crowns and circular brims.
Go for wide brims, short fitted crowns and anything that comes over your forehead like a bucket hat, baseball cap or snapback.
You wear a bucket well! Also try fedoras, ball caps and sock hat at the hairline. Avoid wide, floppy brims and beanies.
