New Hat For A Swelled Head

So I need a wide-brimmed hat for backpacking. Looking around, I think that maybe I'll even go for the gold and get a snappy number like this. But before I can buy any hat, I need to know my hat size (beyond "really big"), so I have Shelby take my measurements.

Hmm. I measure out at 65 cm (25.59 in), which is not only 5 cm more than the largest available size of that snazzy Austrian hiking hat, it's over a half-inch past where most US hat-sizing charts end — at size 8, which is 25".

Maybe I'm stuck with having to go to bigheadcaps.com.
