Ordering a Cap in YOUR size

Ordering a cap in your size is super easy here.

All the caps are available in sizes XS-4XL & custom sizes are also totally available to request too.

As all the caps are drafted and patterned from scratch, pattern grading caps to your size is just one of the basic parts of the craft & head size is one of the things that I actively encourage everyone to be geeky about!

Now this isn't fancy or complicated. It literally means one measurement! You can manage that right?

The only measurement you need is around your head. 

Headsizes tend to range from about 21" to 25". A lot of people are around 22"-23" sure, just like there's lots of people with size 5/38 feet.. But after measuring loads of heads over the years whilst working in theatre, I've learnt that there isn't always a set rule. I've seen really weedy friends with 24" inch heads, opera singers & actors with all kinds of sizes and lots of different builds, hairstyles etc.

After all humans aren't made in an uniform shapes, so it's not really that surprising that there are LOTS more head-sizes than small, medium & large, so it makes total sense to me to offer as many as possible to order.

The main reason that you can't always order that many sizes, especially with ready to wear, are the costs and making stock in advance and the probability of one size selling more than others. But that's an advantage to slow fashion, if clothing is made in small batches, then it's just as simple as using a different sized template to cut and make your cap.

So while it's cool to get something new straight away, if waiting a few more days means it's even more special, then surely that's worth the wait right?

At The Capalog I really want to find a balance between sustainable and getting caps out to you as soon as possible. 

When ordering a cap just check the sizing page before hand and select your preferred size from the drop down menu.
