Measuring:
Place the string or tape around your head above your ear and across the mid forehead, completely circling your head.  Hold the tape firmly, but not too tightly.  Measure your head exactly where you want the hat to sit.  Measure in centimetres.  If your measurement falls between sizes, round up to the nearest centimetre.  It may help to either do this in the mirror or have someone to help for accuracy.
Bespoke Options:
If you wish to order something which varies from the standard options provided in the product listing (such as this style in a different colour or with the addition of a bound edge etc.), your order will need to be placed as a ‘Custom Bespoke Order’ directly with our order team via hatter@herbert-johnson.co.uk.  Please follow the link for more information about our Bespoke Range & how to order.
Our Materials:
All our hats are completely bespoke & handcrafted to order from only the finest sustainably sourced materials here at Herbert Johnson.  We work closely with our fur felt hood suppliers in Portugal, choosing only the highest quality fur felt which is ordered to our exacting specifications.
All our felts are preshrunk during the blocking stage to avoid later shrinking as much as possible.  Our rabbit is pounced to a smooth finish and a coating of protector is applied to prolong its resistance to the elements.  Whilst not as dense as our beaver fur felts, our rabbit makes a very fine quality fur felt hat.
Postage & Packaging:
Once ordered you will be notified of the lead time.
Our hats are carefully packaged in cardboard postal boxes for dispatch internationally.  
We ship worldwide.
We calculate delivery costs based on the weight of each product and country to which the item is to be posted.
Postage costs may be included in the purchase price for some items.
Hat Care:
Store your hat somewhere dry placed brim down or preferably in a hat box. We recommend using a soft bristled hat or clothes brush to care for your hat.  Brush your hat counter clockwise to free any particles from the felt. Whilst we preshrink all our hats, under extreme moisture conditions the felt may still be vulnerable to shrinkage or losing its shape if not properly cared for.  We advise against force drying your hat and it is best to allow it to dry naturally brim side down.
