Sizing Up Your Hats

Nov 1, 2007
If you are looking for a quality hat to wear to your favorite sporting event, you may have a challenge in your hands. One of the most popular hat stores in the world is Lids. http://Lids.com features hats for baseball, football, hockey, basketball, soccer, racing, and other sports. The company carries a wide variety, from team hats, major league sports, and NCAA. In addition, Lids carries many sizes and colors.

When buying a hat, you will need to buy the correct size. Trying hats on is the best way to determine which size you should buy, but if you are shopping online, you may have to measure your head in order to choose the correct size. A cloth tape measure is the best tool to use when measuring your head. If possible, have someone help. It is best to measure the crown of your head, which is very top above the eyes, as this is where the hat will sit. While many hats have adjustable straps, some do not. Another way to determine your hat size is to find the size of the most comfortable hat you own.

To find the right size hat you have to actually measure your head. With a cloth tape measure, wrap it around your head about an inch above your ears, keeping it as even as possible. Write down the measurement if you fear it may be forgotten and then check a hat size conversion chart. Typically, small hats will fit a head measured at between 21 and a quarter inch and 21 and five-eighths inch. Also considers six and three quarters to six and a half in hat sizes. Remember, though that the materials used and the construction of the hat may make different size hats fit differently.

If you are searching for baseball caps to give to someone, you should find out which size they normally wear in order to purchase the right one. While many hat companies have a return policy, doing your research before buying a hat will make the gift more memorable. Many people enjoy wearing hats that show off their favorite teams or leagues. Giving a hat as a gift will be appreciated. Kids hats are also available.

Over time, you may notice your hat is losing its shape or it may be dirty from wearing it too often. It is not recommended that you throw the hat into the washing machine as it will lose its shape, unless you purchase a special plastic container that will keep the hat from being crushed. Hand washing baseball hats with water and detergent will help you keep your hat looking like new. Some hats many need to be dry cleaned because they have a lot of intricate embroidery on them. Read the care instructions carefully before washing your new era hat.

In addition, you can also choose to bend your hat in particular manners to get them to look the way you want them to look. Fashion hats can be worn for many occasions besides sporting events. Many people wear them to cover up a bad hair day, or to keep the sun out of their eyes. Hats have become a symbol for causal days and relaxing. Many people collect hats as well, lining them up on hangers on their walls or even stacking them in cases.
