Care for your Akubra

How to measure your head for the right fit:

Measuring your head, hat size is both an art and a science. You can use a dressmakers tape measure (or a length of string that you will have to hold up to a tape measure) to determine the length. Place the string or tape around your head about 1/8" (0.3 cm) above your ear, across the mid-forehead, completely circling your head. Hold the tape firmly, but not too tightly. Basically, you need to measure your head exactly where the hat will sit. If your measurement falls between sizes, choose the next largest size. For Example, if your head measures 57.5cm then you will need to select a 58cm hat for fitting.

 

   

Heads come in all shapes and sizes, so for an enduring fit with your new Akubra the following points should be considered:

1.  The Sheepskin inner band of the hat may shrink slightly with use. Do not expect a tight-fitting hat to   'loosen up'

 2.   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.
