    Does anyone know how cap sizes work these days? I want to buy a cap on ebay, but I don't know what size I am. I have a pretty average head size. The two caps I'm looking at are 7 1/2 and 7 1/8, what do these numbers mean? Is it like the diameter of ones head in inches?

    When I was in middle school, we had to get my football helmet from a local college. There were none in my size at my school.

    Yeah, I found one! My head is 23inches so my hat size is 7 3/8
    should I just get the 7 1/2 one?

    Hat sizes vary by style and company (even within the company). Mine have been within the 7.25-7.75" range.

    I'm 7" but I tell people I'm 8". Usually they believe me; I'm a pretty big guy and very few people want to whip out the tape measure and measure me themselves. I bet most of the guys in this thread are also lying about their size.

    I don't think I had ever seen that style in 1981, but if I had, I may have done that!
