MEASURING YOUR HEAD: While fitting your head is not an exact science, use this guide and size table below to determine which size/style is right for you. Using a flexible tape measure, start at your forehead above your eyebrows, bring the tape measure around the back until it comes together at your forehead again. If you don’t have a flexible tape measure, a string and ruler can be used instead. Once you have your measurements, refer to the chart below for sizing.
Our shallowest cap profile, this fit is great for people who wear small to medium size hats. It’s also a prime choice for those who prefer a cap that sits above the ears. The adjustable styles start at 58cm, and can be sized smaller and larger.
Coal’s mid crown is all about being right in the middle, not too deep, not too shallow. This fit allows for a little more space between your noggin and the top of the hat if you want to sit it up off your head, or it sits nicely at the ear if you pull it down snug. The starting size is 58.5cm, and can be sized smaller and larger.
Our most accommodating silhouette, this is fit is ideal for those with large and extra-large hat sizes. It is also an excellent choice for people who enjoy a bigger looking crown shape. The starting size is 59.5cm, and can be sized smaller and larger.
The hallmark of a trucker is mesh sides and back panels. Truckers come in all shapes and profiles, but the thing that they all have in common is wonderfully breathable mesh.
As the name suggests these caps are constructed out of 5 pieces of fabric. Formed from two curved side pieces, two upper panels and one arched front, the signatures of a 5 panel cap are to have a low profile when worn and a rounded crown that hugs the shape of the head.
Dad hats are for everybody ! Made of 6-pizza slice shaped wedges of fabric, these caps feature a rounded silhouette and are unstructured for easy, comfortable wearing.
Coal's 7 panel is built off a low profile pattern, but unlike its 6 paneled-dad hat cousins-it has a 7th panel across the lower front. The front panel is a perfect surface for our signature patches.
Our vintage fit has a slightly square shape. These styles are offered as unstructured caps or with mesh inserts at the front. Maybe as a kid you thought the mesh was makeshift sunglasses, or a clever way to keep bugs out of your eyes. We employ the mesh as old-school front panel backing, giving soft shape, without the rigid feel of other backing materials.
Our athletic fit has a tall front crown, with a slightly rounded yet squared off front profile. The front panel is backed in sturdy material, which gives the cap its crisp shape.
Our shortest fitting beanie profile, this fit is great for people who wear small to medium sizes. Ideal for those who prefer a beanie that is the perfect length to just covers the ears, closely hugging the top of the head.
Our mid length fit is the happy medium between low profile and our tall Uniform beanies. These beanies have a little extra room at the top for extra style points and coziness.
The tallest of ‘em all, these beanies have the most extra length past the cranium when worn. Squish it down or wear it high and proud.
Easy fitting and slightly roomy, our slouchy beanies have a relaxed fit and a gentle drape at the top.
Full Brim Styles
Our full brim styles have full 360° coverage. Fedoras, Boonie and bucket hats are a just a few examples of styles that incorporate the full brim feature, creating shade or dramatic styling.
Panama style fedoras are a lightweight summer staple. Stylized with a pinch front crown and a shade making wide brim. Our summer straw hats are woven out of light weight paper straw.

An extra wide brim graces our women’s sun hat, creating both shade and lasting style.
