The Right Fit

Find the Tilley for you.

The Tilley hat fits more comfortably than other hats -  so it often looks better, too. It’s designed to be worn low on your head and slightly loose, and should be held on by gravity.

To ensure ease and comfort, please add 1-2cm (0.4-0.8") to your measured head size for the best fit, depending on how snug you like to wear your hats.

How to measure your head
