Here at the Big Hat Store, we know how difficult it can be to shop around for hats for big heads, which is why we make it our goal to carry styles and hat sizes for people with big heads. Our sizes range from size 7 ½ hats, to size 8 hats and up through size 9 hats (including 2XL through 4XL sized hats). Our vast collection of plain and logo’d baseball hats includes unstructured, structured, Flexfit, fitted (sized), weathered, trucker (mesh), and weathered baseball hats, we have them all! Not only that, but our hats are of the highest quality so you won’t need to worry about purchasing big head hats that are of lesser quality than normal sized hats. You will find that our hats are well-sized, have generous hat depth for your big head, are ultra-comfortable, and look great!
So, here are answers to some of the more popular questions we are often asked by our customers:
1. When did baseball hats for big heads become popular to wear?
It’s difficult to remember a time when the baseball cap was not a popular headwear worn by millions of people around the country. Today, a well-made baseball hat for big heads can put the finishing touches to an outfit and make it stand out in a crowd. But how did we get to where we are today?
Before the early 1980s, it was only baseball players that wore them during games. It wasn’t until actors started to wear them in television, movies, and outside of filmmaking that the baseball hat really started to take off. Directors like Ron Howard and Spike Lee started wearing them because they not only made a fashion statement, but they also wore it to shield their head and face from the sun, especially during sunny days. You also had actors like Tom Selleck wear them on the famous CBS show Magnum P.I. as he solved various crimes with a Detroit Tigers hat on.
And, while baseball hats had become popular items, until our store went online, the public had no place to purchase big sized hats that were big enough around with substantial depth to fit comfortably. Since then, we’ve sold thousands of hats to our many happy customers!
2. What types of baseball hats for big heads do we offer?
Since then the baseball cap has come a long way and is no longer just a fashion item. It is fashion, and the best part is that you don’t have to break the bank to look like famous movie stars and athletes on TV. The Big Hat Store’s affordable hats for large heads are adjustable and fitted, depending on what you prefer, and they also come in a variety of high-quality fabrics like cotton, nylon, wicking material, and wool. You can find light-weight and breathable big hats for sports, a warm wool hat for the winter, or an everyday hat for running errands or having drinks with friends. We specialize in hats for big heads sized 2XL, 3XL, and 4XL so that no big head size is left out!
3. So which type of big sized hats should you purchase?
It’s simple, if you haven’t made up your mind on the type of baseball hat you wish to purchase, first look up your big hat size using our “Size Chart” link in the blue area below. This chart, covering our sizing ranges for our hats for big heads, will explain how to measure your head and determine your hat size. If you fall into the middle of two hat sizes, you have the option of buying hats in either size, but often our customers go with the larger hat size … just to be sure. And, then decide on the colors that suit you best since colors often drive the purchase decisions for many. Remember that lighter colors reflect the sun better, so if you’re in a warm climate you may wish to stay with lighter colors. However, darker colors have the advantage of staying clean looking longer since they don’t easily show smudges. While black and earth tones are very popular colors, in recent years more and more people are buying mid-tone (e.g., khaki, ocean blue) and lighter colors (e.g., cream, white). As for the type of hat (adjustable, fitted, and Flexfit), you’re generally safe going with an adjustable hat to start out. However, since adjustable hats are somewhat open in the back, if you’re looking for maximum sun protection, then you’ll want to go with either a fitted or Flexfit type hat which have no opening in the back.
