Purchasing a hat

When purchasing a hat you will need to choose a size. In order to do that you will need to know the head measurement of the person the hat is intended for. Measuring the head isn't difficult or complicated to do, but hopefully this quick guide will confirm how it's done.

To measure the head

You will need either a soft tape measure (dressmakers tape measure), or a piece of string and a regular tape measure to measure it against.

Head picture of a Victorian male with a measure line indicated around his forehead.
  Measure the circumference around the head keeping  the tape level and firm,
 just above the ears, across the forehead and over the  bump on the back of the head.
 As a guide -  take your head measurement and add approximately half an inch, for comfort, this will give your hat size for a TwiLd Capit Hog handmade hat. 

If you require a custom size, or a little help, you can send me a message here.

The patriotic colours of red, white, and blue were the inspiration for this Smoking / Thinking Cap with a bohemian feel.

This handmade hat has a distinctive tip of patchwork segments in different denims of blue/ black, red, and blue and white stripe. The addition of scroll machine embroidery in red and blue thread brings them together and adds to the boho look.

Blue/ black denim and cyan blue cotton corduroy form the crown, with a fine red braid highlighting the red in the tip. The soft cyan blue corduroy carries through to the inside of the hat to form part of the lining along with fine red cotton twill, for comfortable wear.

The tip is quilted using four layers, in the unique TwiLd Capit Hog style, combining polyester wadding and cotton, for comfort, structure and durability. The denim and corduroy crown can be fully turned up or lowered to give a more nonchalant look. A complementing vintage button in shades of blue adds the final detail to the centre of the tip, for attaching the removable tassel. 

I make hats as unique as the people who wear them. This design, with its mix of fabric and trimmings, has been produced in  a limited number of 2. This is because the denim was small sample sized pieces.

The tassel has been produced using blue cord knotted using a macrame technique, and topped with a wooden bead. Two vintage braids are stitched to form the body of the tassel, and the cotton fringe is taken from a vintage curtain tie back. Both the button and tassel add uniqueness to the hat with the combination of age and character. 

An elegant cap based on the eastern looking lounge hat or fez of the 1860's/70's. The perfect gentleman's dress hat, wizard or magician's hat.

Beautifully made, so comfortable, and absolute lifesavers in the cold weather!!


I love the design so much. The hat itself made-up silk, corduroy, gemstones and Completed with a tassel, it’s magnificent design is a modern spin of the classical smoking hats. I'm beyond pleased and privileged to own this. I proudly own three hats from this store, I'll be taking great care of them. I’m very lucky to have encountered Julie who is a marvellous artist here on Esty who’s creations haven given me a tremendous amount of joy.


Very well made hat, cosy and warm. My second purchase from this store, I will be wearing it for winter.


Absolutely amazing, I saw this item in the medium size that was available, I knew I had to have it, I even messaged the owner if it was possible to make it in my size.

One day I logged on to Esty and there it was listed in my size, I knew immediately what I had to do, it was in two other peoples baskets, but no ! it was destined to me mine !

When it arrived I was astounded, the quality of materials and the craftsmanship was beyond anything I could imagined, this thinking cap was made and designed not to last years but to last decades. I am beyond delighted to own this Harris Tweed cap and I know I will grow old wearing it, I will keep it in great condition so when I have children I will pass it on to them. it was so great and fantastic I even bought another one and I'm thinking about buying a third one.
