Measuring Your Head Size
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 to determine your size.

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