A giftcard makes the reciever able to customize themselves what hat and size that is appreciated. The following list answers what you need to know when giving headwear as a gift.
Yes. Wilgart strongly recommend you to find out about size before ordering. Not only does the cap look better on the head, it is also a lot more comfortable to wear a perfect fitted cap.
There are several ways to find the size without anyone noticing. Those include looking into already owned headwear, asking for permission to measure head by using excuses as if it is for a stupid customer survey, or ultimately choosing to give a gift card instead, and let the receiver decide which style fits him or her best. Notice that if you decide for a gift card for a customizable Wilgart cap instead. The card comes with 5 different fabric cut outs to choose from, making it possible to create a very personal gift. The future owner of the cap chooses how to to personalize the cap by selecting fabric, size, shape and printing a name inside the cap label.
A giftcard from Wilgart enables to buy any of wilgarts offerings including the caps offered in the customizer here on the page.
Expected deliverytime for a giftcard is 1-5 days.
Expected deliverytime for a custom made-on-demand cap is 2-4 weeks.
One way would be to look inside the label of already present headwear. If it comes from a reasonable cap manufacturer, the exact size should be on the label inside. As most companies are producing one-size fits all, chances are that the cap would be somewhere between M or M/L.
If the cap has adjustable sizing a better way is to measure the perimeter because the wearer would have it adjusted to the size that feels comfortable. Use measure tape or a piece of string and measure circumference inside close to the edge of the cap. After measuring with a string, you simply check the length using a ruler or other straight measure. Use measurement in centimeters for a more accurate fit.
Some Wilgart models offers two different depths of the cap. This is an artisan service to meet the needs for better fitting on the very different variation of head shape and size.
The best way to find out about the need is to ask. “Have you ever felt that caps are not fitting well on your head?” Alternatively, if you get the chance, then throw a cap on the persons head, and ask how it feels wearing? Most normal baseball caps and one-size caps have regular fit, thus not empathizes people that have their ears higher placed on the head, making the ears irritating while wearing the regular depth caps.
It is worth noticing that some caps are always minor depth, ex. most sixpences and flat caps are. See more in the description on each cap on the page. More about minor depth read the fact box here: How do I measure my head size?
Head sizes should get properly measured on two axis to precisely predict the best capsize.
The roundabout size and the depth of the cap. Here is how to measure booth.
How to measure circumference
Take a measuring tape and place it around the circumference of the head, slightly above the ears, which is right about the place where your cap normally will sit. Hold the tape fairly close to the head, yet not aggressively tight. Measure your head and then compare the measurement with the table below to find your head size.
The job made easier if you can recruit the neighbor or a friendly fellow to take the measurements for you. If none is available, use a mirror and measure several times to ensure accuracy.
If you do not have a tape measure, you could use a piece of string to measure around your head and then check the length using a ruler or other measure. Use measurement in centimeters for a more accurate fit.
First questions is have you ever felt that the caps you wore till this day have been laying on your ears, possibly making the ears feel uncomfortable?
Next, keep your head straight forward, and wrap the measuring tape vertically from the top of your earflap over to the other top, directly accross your head. Measure several times to ensure accuracy. See the chart below to find out which depth you need.
