Dressing up isn't just for humans
You may think you're ready for your upcoming Oktoberfest party, but your dog or cat probably doesn't agree. I believe that it's time to spoil them and spoil yourself at the same time. There may be nothing quite as cute as a pet dressed up in a costume. Got two pets? Put one in lederhosen and one in a dirndl and put on some polka music. They will start dancing, guaranteed.
Just because it's called a dog costume doesn't mean you can't put it on your cat or your iguana or your little horse. While most cats hate being dressed up, some love it, as long as they can sleep comfortably. Buy one of our pet costumes and dress your pet up, then send us a picture and we'll post it to our Facebook page - firstname.lastname@example.org.
Every Superhero needs a sidekick
Even you! Well, you may not be a superhero, but that doesn't mean you can't dress up and run around saving the day. That kind of thing is always more fun with a friend; why not make it your best friend? Dogs love running around, and you'll love your dog in lederhosen.
Why should I measure my head?
Simply because your head size changes: losing a couple of pounds, getting a hair cut can change the size of your head.
Our hats fit head measurements from 21 1/8 inches to 23 7/8 inches. With standard head measurements for men's hats being 22 5/8 inches, and the standard head measurement for women's hats being 21 1/2 inches, we try to cover every head, from small to extra-large.
To get an accurate measurement use a non-stretch cloth measuring tape instead of a plastic one.
Go for a comfortably snug fit, not too tight and certainly not too loose. The use of a hat may also determine its best fit: a tighter hat stays on better when its windy outside.
Take your time
Place the measuring tape around the widest part of your head, resting it where you like your hat to sit.
Fit is very subjective
Some people wear their hats low, some at an angle and some quite high. Some prefer their fedoras to be angled.
When you've got the tape positioned, join the leading edge to the tape at any comfortable spot on your forehead and note the number of inches, including fractions of an inch.
Then simply compare the number of inches to the chart below to find your hat measurement.
A word of advice
Remember, if your measurement falls somewhere in the middle of a size range, it's advisable to choose the next largest size. Same with when you're trying to decided between "S/M" or "L/XL".
You will notice that some of our hats are "one size fits most". These hats generally have an elastic sweatband to accommodate a wide range of sizes.
