Questions About Orders

How do I order?
When you come across a Hartford York product you wish to order, choose a size and color (if applicable), and click on the ORDER NOW button.

You may then proceed by choosing the “Continue Shopping” or “Check Out Now” button.

At any time you can click on the “View Cart” button (upper right) to see what’s in your cart. This will show you each product you have chosen to order, and the quantity of each item. You can remove a product by clicking on “Remove” box. If you want to change the quantity of a product, simply type over the existing number and then click “Update Cart”.

Once you’re ready to check out, complete all required fields in the “Shipping Address” form, then click “Continue Checkout”.

Review the “Order Totals” page and click “Continue Checkout”.

Complete the required fields in the “Billing Address” form - making sure that the billing address you enter is identical to the billing address associated with the credit card you’re using.

Then click on “Continue Checkout.”

Review all the information on the “Confirm Order Information” screen, then click on “Submit Order”.

You will see an online receipt. Please print this out for your records. You will also receive an email confirmation within 24 hours.

Why won't my order go through?

Some of the most common reasons why orders do not go through successfully are:

- There are no items in your shopping cart.
- Shipping and/or billing information is incorrect.
- Credit card number and/or expiration date is incorrect.

I get the message "URL Missing." What does that mean?

A “URL Missing” message means that the web page you tried to access is not where the link says it is. This can happen for several reasons.

If you receive a “URL Missing” error, please send an email to Customer Service, describing which page you tried to access and also the previous page that referred to this broken page. Our technician will fix the problem as soon as possible.

I'm getting the error message "Missing Required Fields" when entering my shipping and billing info.

If a field has red text above it, it means you must type in valid information for your order to be successfully processed.

Why won't it accept my credit card info?

You may not be entering the number correctly. Make sure not to type any spaces, dashes or any other extra characters in the credit card number. Check that you have chosen the correct expiration date. The credit cards we accept are Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover.

Why does it say I have an invalid email address?

When entering your Shipping information, you must include a valid email address in this format: username@domain.com. You must repeat the email address in the next part of the form to confirm it. If the second entry is different from the first one, you will get an error message.

Your Hat Size

What is my hat size?

All you need to determine your hat size is a cloth tape measure. Please see our Hat Sizing Chart (which goes from Small to 3X) for details.

Remember that hats, as a rule, don’t stretch and may even shrink over time. It is always preferable to go up to the next size if you need to round off. If the hat is slightly loose, you can insert pieces of material or felt hat pads under the inner leather band to adjust the fit perfectly.

Hat Styles

What hat style is best for me?

The best rule of thumb here is – if you like the hat, it’s probably your style. Obviously, you’ll want a color that enhances your skin tone and outfit.

Your body size and shape can help determine the style best suited to you. For instance, a generous brim adds a sense of balance to a larger person’s silhouette, while a higher crown adds height.

Face Shapes

If you have a round face - try to draw the eye up and away from the face with generous brims, interesting trims and higher crowns. For height, remember that self bands tend to make crowns appear taller.

If your face is oval - go slightly asymmetrical (self-shaped brims are great), with a tapered, moderate crown and use trim to move the eye up.

If you have a square face - you can soften your jaw line with a more rounded hat while wearing a wide brim counters face width.

If your face is generally large - you can draw attention to the hat with wide brims, but ensure that trimmings are understated.

If you have a small face - avoid overlarge crowns and brims.

Hat Care and Storage

Hats are made from a variety of materials, including straw, natural fibers like palm leaves, natural and faux furs, wool, cotton and cashmere.

Generally, the best way to keep your hat from getting dirty is to brush it regularly and also to store it properly when it’s not being worn (either upside down in a hat box or loosely wrapped in plastic). Another preventive measure is to occasionally turn down the sweatband to air dry.
