Determining Your Child's Hat Size
Hat size is based on the circumference of the head. In order to determine your child's proper hat size, you must take a measurement of their head. Using a tape measure, measure the head about one-half inch above their eyebrows where the hat will rest. Be certain that the tape measure is straight, not twisted. Alternatively, you can use piece of string to measure their head, and then measure the length of the string with a ruler. If you are not certain about size, or if your child is between sizes, buy the larger size.
Use the chart below to determine hat size based on the measurement you take.
*How To Measure Your Child's Head - Measure around the widest part of the head, just above the eyebrows. Use a tape measure. If you don't have a tape measure, use a string and then measure the resulting string length with a ruler.
**Age of Child - The head grows to almost 80 per cent of the adult size during the child's first year. We have found that for hat sizing purposes head measurement is more important than the child's age. That is why that with the exception of infants, we do not list sizes by age. Our experience with Kangol Hats for Kids has shown us that the size small is very small and only fits infants. Please measure your child's head. OTHER THAN FOR INFANTS, AVOID SIZE SMALL.
