A hat by Montecristi Custom Hat Works is made to last for many years. The size should fit perfectly.

We size all of our hats to the customer’s exact measurements.

Knowing your head’s circumference is the first step. Contact us and we’ll send you a free sizing kit that includes a paper measuring tape and instructions on how to use it correctly.

Determine Your Head Shape

The size of your head is only one factor in achieving the perfect fit. The shape of your head and face matter, too.  All heads are oval in shape, but some are longer while others are rounder, while very few heads are symmetrical. An ill-fitting hat will create pressure points that can become uncomfortable.

Visit Us for a Custom Fitting

For the best fit, Montecristi recommends that you visit our shop in Santa Fe, New Mexico for a custom fitting. Here, we’ll use a device called a conformitor to determine the exact shape of your head. The conformitor creates a paper template that we keep on file for you next hat purchase.

A visit to our shop will also allow us to explore all of your options with you. Select the quality of your hat’s material, color, the crown and brim size, and the right band to complement your hat.

Long Distance Sizing

If you cannot visit our shop, you will find our sizing kit and website helpful in addressing all fit and style options. Photos of your head (top-down, profile, front, back) will help us determine your unique shape.

If this is your first Montecristi hat, we will send you sample leathers to confirm your home measurement.

We are happy to work with clients via phone, email, and video chat.
