SUSANA GIMENEZ: unboxing video

November 18, 2019

The lovely Susana Giménez is the biggest celebrity in Argentine television, the Oprah Winfrey or Raffaella Carrà of South America. She interviewed Javier Parisi on her show, falling in love with his John Lennon leather cap (designed by me) and the whole story of how we met. Susana said she would love to have a cap in her size so I sent one over to Buenos Aires and here she is unboxing it, live on television!

She wrote me the sweetest note: "Dear Helen, at last I have the incredible gorra of your unforgettable brother John! Javier Parisi told us you are a beautiful person and he was right. Helen, if I go to England, I will visit you, to have a cup of tea together. Thank you, thank you , thank you. All my love, Susana."

How to measure your head for my leather cap

sketch of John Lennon by Helen Anderson 

 

 
A message from Helen about sizing: 
Hats are a bit like jackets and dresses: sizes are supposed to be universal but may vary from one manufacturer to another. I can’t guarantee you a perfect fit, but I can do my best to help.

My cap is available in 4 sizes: Small (S), Medium (M), Large (L) and Extra Large (XL). It’s an investment piece, so I encourage you also to invest three minutes to find the perfect fit.

Don’t just guess your size!
John Lennon’s head measured 23.5 inches. He was a size XL (big brain!). Here's how I measured it, back in 1964 - and how you can measure yours now.
  1. Don’t panic if you don’t have a tailor’s tape measure handy. You can also use a length of string or ribbon, and then measure it against a ruler.
  2. Place the string or tape around your head about 3mm above your ear, across the mid-forehead, completely circling your head. Hold the tape firmly, but not super-tightly.
  3. I’d like you to measure your head exactly where the cap will sit. If your measurement falls between sizes, choose the next size up.
Remember: If you have big hair, you’ll probably need the next size up!

SIZES

SIZE GUIDE

You will need to tell me your size at the time you order.

CHOOSE SMALL CHOOSE MEDIUM CHOOSE LARGE CHOOSE EXTRA-LARGE 

If you are in such a hurry to get hold of a cap that you don’t have time to measure your head, you could also check the size of another hat that fits: hat sizes are universal… in theory. Don’t see your size? Have a special request?
