Extra Large Hat: How and Where to Buy

Fact: It is very hard to find an extra large hat for a big head, sometimes impossible. Typically hats are one size fits all, which means heads up to about 22.” Some men’s hats come in sizes; but, the sizes don’t fit big heads. One size fits all caps for men typically fit up to a 7 3/4 and are usually sports caps with plastic adjustable strips in the back. Bottomline: Fun hats in lots of colors are hard to find.

Several retailers now offer larger hats in a wide range of useful and fashionable styles:

How to Measure for an Extra Large Hat

Whether a hat is marked “One Size,” or has a size (i.e. 7 3/4) or a measurement (i.e. 24 inches) the starting point is to measure around your head about 1 inch above your eyebrows. If you don’t have a measuring tape, pull a non-stretchy tape around your head and then measure it against a yardstick or ruler.

Every hat manufacturer seems to have a different sizing chart; so, be sure to check your head measurement against the size chart for the hat that you are considering.
