Just call me pgoat, the mangy cur!
I am in the process of ordering a CD from everything australian and they are inquiring about Akubra doing the wide ribbon for me from the factory. I'm looking to do a Taupe Fawn, bashed like RBH's but with a 2" Black grosgrain.
No word back yet if they can do it but I was already told they'll do up a Long oval for me, which is great. If they won't do the wide ribbon I plan to try it with the stock thin ribbon for a while (It does look awfully good in a lot of pics posted by wearers here) and if it just doesn't make it on me, I'll have it done over by someone eventually.
