You are not wrong, Stefan. Metric is not a mode of measure that I can take to, but with US & UK hat sizes differing, I find that a metric 62cm a perfect fit. I don't know if that 62 that you are showing with an imperial seven & a half is US or UK, if was UK it would definitely be, seven and three quarters.

In the meantime I am stepping out of my fedora comfort zone and hoping to buy a vintage Yorks Boater, circa 1950's. It's in fair condition for it's vintage. Sturdy and clean a good sweatband and I love the hat ribbon & crest. There is some staining and slight damage to the brim at the back, but not that noticeable.
Photos to follow.
Check out the blazer thread to see what I intend to team it up with.

I had forgotten you were a size 62 as well, Robert. Shame on me. The size 7 1/2 is neither UK nor US, but the French sizing. I think you'd wear a boater very well, but I can see wearing one would take some getting used to without being self-conscious.

Thanks Brent. Looks like it will be more like 7-1/4 to 7-3/8.
Yes, I was interested too and asked for the measurements.....they added those two photos......I figured I already hat way to many smallish hats.......:confused:

But I did end up with this as a sort of consolation prize......
