Big Head Hat Yet Again

The other day I lost my black acrylic/wool Nautica knit beanie-style hat. I lost it in a train station, so I don't expect to ever find it again (the station staff had not seen it). Help me find one like it!

I found the original hat in a Filene's a couple of years ago, and I know Nautica is no longer producing it. The knit was an unusually thick rib (no cuff) and it was sized larger than most beanies, watch caps, or ski hats. I have an unusually large head (though the rest of me is small) and most instances of this type of hat are much too small and tight, mashing my hair.
I know large-head hat issues have been discussed here before here
, and here.
The original hat was long enough to cover my ears. The top fit smoothly across the top of my head. I don't like it when the top of such a hat sticks up, making the wearer look like Zippy the Pinhead. I am also not looking for a baggy cap that looks like a shower cap or a newsboy cap.
I would appreciate tips on physical stores or online stores that cater to people with big heads, as I am afraid of buying online only to find that the hat will be too small.
Otherwise I will have to steal my father's cashmere watch cap! A big head is definitely a hereditary trait.
