Akubra Size Guide

Measuring Your Head Size

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 your head.

To determine your hat size follow these 3 simple steps:
  • Measure the circumference around your head - approximately 12mm (1/2") above the ears
  • Keep the dressmaker tape level and firm, across the temple and above the eyebrow ridges.
  • Check the size chart given below.

NOTE: For in-between measurements use the next size up.

For an enduring fit with your new Akubra the following points should be considered:

  • The Sheepskin inner band of the hat may shrink slightly with use. Do not expect a tight-fitting hat to 'loosen up'
  • In time, the hat will conform to your head shape. Initially, a slightly loose-fitting hat can be adjusted using folded tissue placed behind the inner band, then removed as the hat conforms to your head shape.
