Winter Hat Options for Big-Headed Trolls.

I have a roughly Kevin-Mench (e.g., size 7 3/4-8) sized noggin and, as a result, have never consistently worn a hat of any sort. I'm looking to keep warm this winter though, and so far the only knit cap I've found was an XL cashmere Hermes number for 300-some dollars.

I'm not looking for anything extravagant necessarily, just something that will keep my head warm without looking like an XS Trojan on Milton Berle. With knit hats, the rule seems to be one size fits all, and if there is ever a deviation, it's to have smaller sizes for peanutheads. I don't quite understand this. They make sweatshirts in XXXL for behemoths, but if you have a hat size greater than 7 1/2 you seem to be SOL apart from fedoras and the like.

Any suggestions/links, etc.? Thanks.

Try Noggintops.com. They have winter hats and a section on big sizes. It's where I've gotten my big hats, including the Tilley winter hat that I wear most of the winter.

You can probably get a Tilley that fits you. A few off the rack hats come in size and more in 7 3/4 but generally only the larger hat stores stock them.

7 3/4 is not a really uncommon size at all and there are economical options for this size in fedora's as well.
