Stetson is one of the most well-known manufacturers of cowboy hats in the United States. The company was started in 1865 and now sells hats in hundreds of styles and colors. An American trademark, a cowboy hat is not just about the hat you buy, but how you wear the hat. In order to properly wear a Stetson hat, you need to make sure you order the correct size. Measuring your head to determine your size is a quick and simple task.
Determine where a Stetson hat is most comfortable on your head. Most cowboy hats look best resting on the crown of your head. This is the widest part of your head, just about your eyebrows and ears.
Use the tape measure to measure the area around your head in inches. Start at the front of your forehead and wrap the tape measure around. Mark the measurement.
Check Stetson’s hat measurement chart to determine which size Stetson hat you should buy. Their chart is on their website, http://www.stetsonhat.com/raw/FAQ.asp#HowdoIfigureoutwhatsizeIwear
If your head measurement falls between two measurements, order the larger size Stetson cowboy hat. For example, if your head measures 22 1/8 of an inch, you would order the size listed under 22 1/4 of an inch.
