Any ideas where one might find a hat for a large head?

 

I'm after a hat to wear around the house on weekends etc when doing chores outside. It doesn't need to be a fashion statement just practical. Unfortunately I have a big head, bigger than all XL sized hats i've found through normal channels. A quick measurement suggests its about 64cm! I've tried all the usual physical stores and can't find anything online locally.

A decent hatter can steam and stretch a felt hat to fit. No idea if there is one in NZ.

 

Why do you want to wear a hat around the house? Gentlemen do not wear hats indoors.

Outdoor stores have a bunch of sizes. You can get almost anything on amazon/ebay. Like this.

Perfect, ordered something from Amazon. Looks like it'll be about $75NZD delivered which given most of the hat's I was looking at in the outdoor stores were ~$50 I can live with the price.

Amazon's weird. Some things cost heaps to ship, but sometimes it comes out at $8. I think it's whether it ships direct from an Amazon warehouse.

 

The hat I just bought in NZ cost $50.

I would look at hunting fishing stores or call Hills Hats directly.

I have a few Hills Hats. Mainly for golf, but I'm bald and dislike baseball style caps and logos.
My head is 61cm and I wear their large.
Smith and Caughey in Auckland have them as well a few random places around the country.

I have a Hills that I have had for ages - it is supposed to be waterproof but most certainly is not. It's the same kind that used to be (maybe still is) issued to DOC field staff.

 

It's pretty stained and beat up after 9 years of merciless Wairarapa sunshine but still going!
