Please follow the BlueCollar Beanies directions on the size chart page. Measure twice, order once! DO NOT use the other hat makers hat size as not all hat makers use the same measurements for sizing. I have had a few customers make that mistake and their were disappointed that their new hat didn’t fit properly, it was either too tight or too lose.
If your measurement is in between a size and you need a bit added or removed from a size that most definitely can be done. You can add that explanation into the message box on your order. If you are unsure of a fit you can start with a premade hat before making your custom order.
Do not order a size larger as the hats will NOT shrink. All the fabrics are prewashed and dried in the dryer extra long prior to cutting to prevent shrinking then ironed before being cut. BlueCollar Beanies are like a pair of jeans, they will fit perfect as long as you measure properly and will stretch out a bit when wearing. Once washed and even thrown in the dryer, Yes thrown in the dryer, they will shrink back to that perfect fit.
BlueCollar Beanies hats are all 6 panel hats with a rim (accurately measured and cut) and a beak that were designed by me based on all the complaints from welders over the years.
BlueCollar Beanies originally started with only double sided hats with reinforced stitching to make the hats more durable and hold up over time. A single sided hat has just recently been introduced and is being tested for its durability. The single sided hats also have reinforced stitching for longer durability.
There is no seam of the front of the hat. The only seam on the hat is at the rear of the rim which is on the back over the beak. The rim is so comfortable you will not even realize you are wearing the hat.
If you have a company and would like a custom swag fabric, you can email your logo for me to make you a swag fabric design. You are welcome to let me know what you would like to see or you can let me be creative for you.
Yes I can make you a custom fabric of your own artwork, I will not use someone else’s art unless you have been given permission to use the design. You must have a copyright permission.
