Anyone know any decent suppliers of hats for those of us cursed/blessed with large heads. I'm fed up of going to stalls at events and balancing hats on my head rather than wearing them. I would love a Pith helmet yet despite all the helpful suggestions from stall holders they don't sit right and look like a ladies fascinator perched on ones head. Plus at the moment I'm looking for a black beret.

Nothing beats a good hat.

I think we have determined, through numerous previous threads and posts over the years, that if you're talking 'XXXLarge' (over 65cm) you'll probably be looking at 'bespoke'.

That is, you'll probably have to pay more and have one made.

Most places only supply 'off the shelf' up to about 63cm (7 7/8).

There seem to be a number of patterns for berets available on the interweb, such as http://www.ehow.com/how_7772163_make-beret-fabric.html. As for the pith helmet, I'm now wondering how one might go about making a bespoke version of one of those...

Yours,

A large pith helmet?

I actually did have this in my possession once:



Worn by Rick Moranis in the "comb the desert" scene in Spaceballs. It is now in the hands of a Hollywood producer.
