New Hat Boxes

New Hat Boxes

We have received our new hat boxes and we couldn't be happier with them!

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.

White hat boxes

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.

Open hat box

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.

Hornskov hat box

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.

HOW TO FIND YOUR HAT SIZE

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.

Hornskov København - Hat sizing kit with special head circumference head measuring tape to measure your hat size.
HOW TO USE THE SIZING KIT

  1. Find a mirror or someone to help you take the measurement.
  2. Open the hat size tape measure and place it on your head with the size card on your forehead. 
  3. Pull on the tape measure till it sits securely on your head. 
  4. Adjust it so it measures the widest part of your head, which in most cases is about a fingers width above the ears. 
  5. Repeat a couple of times to make sure the size it right.

 

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.
