The perfect size of a cap - how to take correct measurements?
Are the numbers in the column with the size of the selected cap "black magic" to you and you have no idea what they mean? Don't worry - stay assured that you are not the only one who doesn't have the faintest idea what this is all about. The two-digit number usually indicates the circumference of the head. But, how to measure it correctly? Where is it measured? The first step is to find a suitable measuring tool - a tape measure works best in this case. If you don't have it you can also use an ordinary ribbon. Let's get down to business! Now, simply measure the circumference of your head at the right place, i.e.,1.5 cm above the ears, brow bones and the back of the head at the widest point. Make sure that the tape measure or ribbon are not tight and fit the head properly. Now, check the number on the tape measure - it will be the size of your cap. If the circumference of your head is 58 cm, the corresponding size of a cap is 58. There may also be a situation where the head circumference is a fractional value, for example 56.5 cm - then it is worth going for a larger size of a cap, that is, 57. Many of you have probably noticed that there are various types of caps, including those worn over the ears. What then? In this case, the procedure for measuring the circumference of the head is similar, with only one difference - measure your head together with the ears, i.e., in the place where the hat usually ends. It's so easy!
What else should you bear in mind when choosing headwear?
Finding the perfect cap is not just a question of size - there are other aspects to consider before making a purchase, such as the type of material. It has been known for a long time that headwear made from certain fabrics works better in summer and there are some types of materials that are more suitable for colder seasons. On warmer days, opt for light and breathable fabrics such as linen or cotton, preferably in light colours. In winter, wool, which is known for its excellent thermal insulation properties, and fleece are much better options - the materials are warm and the hats made of them are usually inexpensive. When deciding on a specific type of cap, it's also worth paying attention to the finish - if it's neat, you can be sure that the cap selected by you will serve you longer than just one season.
The design of the cap and the shape of the face
You already know your size and what material the perfect cap should be made of. Have you ever wondered how important it is to choose a proper design? You can always go with the latest trends, however, make sure that you choose a cap that suits... the shape of your face. If your face is oval, your task is easier - you will look great in any headwear. If you have distinctive, expressive features - definitely opt for a retro-style hat or cap.
