When we were running low on our hatboxes we decided to do something new instead of just ordering another batch of the old ones. Our old hatboxes were white, which meant that they didn't look that good for very long, if you wanted to keep the box for storing or if you used it while travelling. They were also a lot bigger than they needed to be. When we designed them we didn't have any idea of how wide people wanted the brims on their hats, so we went big just to be safe.
Because they were so big, they were very unhandy. Both to be carrying around but also to store. Our new boxes are both shorter and have a smaller footprint. That way they are easier to fit in a closet or in the overhead compartment on an air plane.
We took advantage of the fact that our boxes are made right here in Copenhagen and went back and forth to the manufacturer to make sure that we got it right this time.
The darker colour ensures that they will not look banged up as easily as the white ones did. The inside of the box has been designed to keep the hat securely in place, whether it is tossed around during shipping or being carried on your travels.
To make the box easier to carry, we have implemented a handle that doubles as a string to keep the lid in place.
When you want to open the box you simply pull on the string and the handle retracts allowing you to remove the string securing the lid.
Every Hornskov hat of course comes with one of these boxes.
Getting a hat in the right size can sometimes prove quite difficult, because every hat brand’s sizes differ slightly from the next. Sometimes the difference can be as much a size and a half.
That’s why we have made a FREE sizing kit with a special head circumference tape measure and instructions on how to find the right hat size. Get your sizing kit here.
HOW TO USE THE SIZING KIT
If you don’t want to wait for our sizing kit you can also use a regular tape measure to measure your head at the widest point, which in most cases is about a fingers width above the ears.
What you get in cm is essentially your hat size. So if you measured your head to be 58 cm, your hat size is 58. If you are in between two sizes we would recommend choosing the smaller of the two, as the hat will then expand a bit to take the shape of your head.
