Hat sizes are simply a conversion of head diameter in inches to head circumference in centimeters (centimetres). Shoe size information is approximate and can vary slightly even within one country.

Note that in most countries clothes sizes are rarely very accurate and frequently vary considerably, especially overcoats.

Did you know that... Shoe sizes were originally measured in units based on the barleycorn.
