To find the hat that’s best for your face,
we use a process similar to choosing the tool that’s right for the job.
1. Look in the mirror. What’s your face shape?
An oblong face is longer than it is wide,
with fairly straight lines running from temple to jaw, and a round chin.
A square face has a strong jawline, a wide forehead, and wide cheekbones.
Your face is about as wide as it is long, with a wide forehead, full cheeks, and a rounded chin.
Try balancing out this face shape with a more angular hat like a flatcap.
Because your face is very symmetrical, you can easily wear asymmetrical shapes,
such as hats with a high crown and peaked or slanted brim.
You can further accentuate this effect by slanting your hat forward.
Avoid tall rounded crowns or wide crowns and brims, which will accentuate the roundness of your face.
Widest at the cheekbones, your face is highly angular, with a narrow forehead and a tapered chin.
A moderate to wide brim fedora with a pinched crown may be the best hat style for you.
2. Find a measuring tape. What’s your hat size?
3. Bonus round. Want more?
We’ve got it. We just helped the folks at The Today Show find excellent hats.

The perfect hat for your face is easy to find…
if you know what you’re looking for.
And now you do.
