A yellow straw hat from Lewees of Philadelphia featuring a shallow crown, wide brim, and finished with yellow ribbons in the inside and outside of the brim. The hat is meant to be worn sitting "back" on the head to show the ribbon inside the brim, so there is an attached comb inside the hat to keep the hat in place. The circumference around the inside of the crown of the hat is 21". The crown height is 3 1/2" and the brim width in the front is 3" and much shorter in the back (1 1/4"). The inside of the hat has a label that reads "Lewees Philadelphia." The condition is very good.
Apart from the stated size on the label, we take the following measurements to determine a hats exact size:
The easiest way to determine your hat size is to take the size from a hat that already fits you. In the absence of that, using a flexible tape measure, do the following:
Measure your head around where the hat will rest by placing the tape measure 1/8-1/2" above your ear, across the middle of your forehead above your eyebrows, and around your head back to the starting point. If the measurement you get is in between sizes, choose the next size up.
