How to Choose the Right Hat Size

Choosing the right hat size is always a critical moment, also because every hat made by hand and then sold in hat shops has very different sizes compared to the classic ones you are used to from clothing shops.

Hat sizes are calculated in centimetres and range from size 55 (the smallest) to 62 (the largest); in order to understand which size is best for you, you need to follow an extremely simple and quick procedure.
To calculate your correct hat size all you have to do is take a dressmaker's tape measure, measure the circumference of your head by holding the tape measure just one centimetre above your ears, which is the point where your hat will fit perfectly.

If you do not have a tape measure you can calculate the size simply by using a piece of string, a string or a shoelace of your shoes: in the same procedure as before with the tape measure calculate the circumference, mark with a pen or a felt-tip pen the point where the two parts of the lace meet and then with a ruler or a normal tape measure the lace.

The Jigen is a Drop hat made of sea straw in natural color decorated with grosgrain belt and a very special bow in red color copertino. The peculiarity of this hat is to give your look a very sporty connotation but at the same time elegant.

Typically American and born in the first twenty years of the twentieth century, the Drop is a reworking of the most classic forms, such as the Fedora. It is the shape of the hat worn by Indiana Jones during his fantastic adventures. In the Sixties this model underwent a resizing of the brim and Doria 1905 decided to make this shape the protagonist of its collections.

The Jigen hat is worked by craftsmen from Salento with the only help of steam and heat, pulling it by hand on wooden forms in a delicate way so that it maintains its renowned lightness and freshness. It is very important that the fibers do not close each other leaving the weave enough space for light to filter through, giving a special and shiny look to the straw.

Sea Straw, also known as Seagrass, is a rough, light and breathable weave. It is an innovative and sustainable material, made using and exploiting the natural characteristics of Poseidonia without the addition of chemical treatments. The Posidonia oceanica, also known as "Neptune's grass", is a very common seaweed in the Mediterranean seas. In tourist resorts it is disposed of as waste because its dead parts are brought to the shore fouling the beaches. Its use is in the name of eco-sustainability and it is perfect to create weaves and then hats. The result is a completely renewable product, absolutely green and respectful of our precious ecosystem.
