Head size should get properly measured on two axis to precisely predict the best capsize. Some Wilgart hats are offered in S, M, and L sizes, the adjustable strap is there to make the final adjustments. However, knowing exact head size increases the chance that it will fit perfect, and if you chose a model that is closed in size, the measurements is vital, as chances are only 10% right by guessing. Here is how to measure booth, roundabout and the depth of a correct fitted cap.

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.

If your model has the S, M, and L size options you can usually find your size by asking this question:
When wearing the standard one-size caps, what do I tend to regulate them in or out?
In other words: Do I make the adjustable setting smaller, do I make it larger, or do i just go along with the presetting that’s in the middle?

This will tell if your head is smaller, larger or just about in the middle of the average head measure, and it will predict your size good in most cases. If you want to be more sure and secure about size, then do a correct measurement of circumference and compare it to the sizing metrix below.

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 afterwards. Use measurement in centimeters, or check the calculation sheet.

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. This meassurement can be a bit tricky, please contact us if you are in doubt?

Notice that we recommend customers to think about how their own experiences with caps and their fit has been. If you have encountered problematic fit with other baseball caps or standard caps from the major companies, it might be so that a minor depth cap from Wilgart will fit you better. And make you feel more comfortable than ever.

Please contact us if you need further help with measuring and size charts. We do offer the service of guiding you through the meassuring process over the phone.

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?

The depth of Wilgart caps are different to make sure the cap does not intersect with the ears, making the cap uncomfortable for some hat-heads to wear. Most other caps are sold as one-size depth, but at Wilgart we make a prestige in having two different depths available to our customers. The size Minor depth is special made for those people who often have trouble finding the right fit with regular caps. After 7 years in the business, I would say rule of thumb is this count for 15-20% of my customers.
For those of you not able to visit one of our retailers, that will assist you in finding your personal head fit, it is important to make the measure yourself. However, there are no standard measurements on this, so you need to try a standard one-size cap from another company to find out if you are in the special zone of capbeareres, that need the minor depth fitting. Usually the need for a minor depth fit, is obvious to people because the fact that most caps they have ever tried, did not sit comfortable on the head, and one tend to not forget that.
