Math Hat

A local newspaper included this ad in its Want Ads section:

"Local hat mfg seeks exp'd cutter, Must know math. Call 1-3 pm. 671-#####"

My question: what math is needed?

Geometry maybe...spatial aspects?

Arithmetic maybe...fractions?

Measurement maybe...units conversion?

Calculus maybe...area of unusual regions?

I regret not calling to find out...What math must a hat cutter need to know?
