Diamond-Shaped Face

Diamond-Mens-PH-final-resized

Widest at the cheekbones, your face is highly angular, with a narrow forehead and a tapered chin. A moderate to wide brim with a pinched crown may be the best hat style for you.

Oblong Face

Oblong-Mens-PH-final

An oblong face is longer than it is wide, with fairly straight lines running from temple to jaw, and a round chin.

Try hats with a flared brim like wide brim fedoras, or hats like newsboys and cloches that sit low on the forehead. Avoid hats with narrow or flat brims, as these will overemphasize the long lines of your face.

Round Face

Round-Mens-PH-final

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. 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.

Square Face

Square-Mens-PH-final

A square face has a strong jawline, a wide forehead, and wide cheekbones.

If you’ve got a square face, soft designs like floppy hats or curvy lines like bowlers will be especially flattering for you.

What’s my hat size?

Everyone knows their shoe size. Hats? Not so much. But with a few quick measurements, you will know your hat size which, unlike your waist size, will stay the same for the rest of your life.

Method A: Measuring tape

Simply measure the circumference of your head in inches or centimeters, holding the tape or string snug, but not too tight, just above your ears – which is right about where your hat will sit. The job is made easier if you can recruit the neighbor or a friendly cop to take the measurements for you. If none is available, use a mirror and measure several times to ensure accuracy. Then consult the chart below to determine your equivalent size.

Method B: String

No measuring tape? No problem. Cut a 30″ piece of string. Use the string to measure your head, then measure the length of string used.
