: Well, the easiest way is to use one of those flexible, plastic
: clothing tape measures. It works easiest if you have someone measure
: your head for you. Make sure that the tape measure is snug, but not
: too tight. Remember, this is how the hat will ultimately fit you.
: Since the hat is British-made, you will need to give your measurement
: in centimeters, rather than inches. Professional tailors and hat
: shops can do the measuring for you. Hope this helps.
Check out the Stark and Legum website (http://www.menshats.com/) for information on metric sizing. Their sizing chart is under the "Tip of the Hat" link.
