custom made one hat at a time
Try one of my urban sailor cap. All the work is hand rendered. Start with standard sinamay straw material and all cotton fabric liner. The body is double blocked on my wood newsboy shaped block. The trim and bill are leather with metal buckle for sizing. Metal rivets secure the band in place. This hat comes in a variety of sinamay colors and leather bands. Please specify which color you prefer. The trim and band can also be constructed of fabric.
How to measure your head:
1. Using a tape measure made of plastic or cloth, measure circumference of head just above top of ears and just above the brow. Make sure the tape lies midway on your occipital bone (the little bone in the middle of the back of your head).
2. Place the tape measure at the top center of your head and measure the distance to where you want the brim to place. This will give the crown depth. It is important that you provide these two measurements to get a perfect fit. Remember; please include your hair in both measurements. Don’t pull the tape too tightly; let it sit comfortably, i.e. how you’d like the hat to fit.
