    Hey guys,

    I need your expert help. . .

    I currently am purchasing some panama hats from mr bob (i hope) and was thinking of adding an extra one for my dad as it will soon be fathers day.

    I checked his hats, and they are all stetson XL. Would anyone happen to know what size that is exactly? I have about 59and my hats are too small for him. I am guessing he has like 61 or 62 but again, no idea. Would anypne be able to let me know what size xl of stetson translates to?

    Theoretically the size....But XL type sizing is not too precise. It would be best to measure a hat that you know fits him well. Measuring front to back and side to side then using an ellipse formula is often easier and more accurate than trying to measure the circumference with a tape. If there is a store with a measuring device you might also be able to borrow a hat and have them check the size.

    Thank you very much, unfortunately there is no way i could ever sneak out his hat :) 61 sounds very right to me, thank you very very much!

    I wear a 7 1/2 and the one straw I have is an XL and fits fine.
