    Some of us (me) have oddly shaped heads. If I put on a hat, and I mean any hat, and leave it alone, it eventually tilts left. Sometimes I leave it, and sometimes I readjust it, depending on who knows what.

    Lexol and Pecards are both excellent leather care products.

    Can't really see your build, just your head and shoulders, but it looks good on you.

    Just an observation, not a criticism: you wear your hat rather high up on your head. This can make the hat look taller simply because it is higher up in the air. But if it is comfy, then that's the way to go. Me, I like tall hats, too. I just wear 'em lower.

    There is a sticker underneath the sweatband that says "7 1/4 F38 SEE 04685 3W".







    Anyone?

    1980s most likely.

    By "those" do you mean the Stetson American Buffalo collection?
    I have a boss of the plains from that collection, but I think they call it by another name-- yes- the "Austral." I believe TRick also owns one.
    I'm really happy with it. Very sturdy, rugged felt, and the sweatband is one of the softest and most comfortable I've ever experienced. The Australs come in basically a pecan colored felt they call "bark" but some other models are available in black I think.

    I haven't tested mine in rain yet, and it doesn't get s much noggin time as some of my other, more urban hats, but I look forward to wearing it more and I actually happen to love the way it looks on the wall, too!

    Anyone know when Stephen L. Stetson hats stopped using the liner with the black lines blanking out some wording?
    If they stopped at all before stopping producing hats.

    The crown sticker/label came out of my Akubra. Does anyone know what I should use to reattach it? The hat is unlined, just had the Akubra label in the crown. Thanks in advance for the help.
