Hat Sizes and Shapes

Each hat supplier will usually have a variety of hat stles they manufacture. Shapes and sizes will vary on the manufacturer you choose. An important thing to consider is how your hat feels on your head and how it is adjusted to stay on your head. Choosing closures like a snapback or velcro are not the only choices. Stretch fits hats will not have a rear closure but offer a cofort and sizes to fit most heads.
