    The Wrong Side of the Road

    I didn't know whether to put this in the Akubra Overload or the Conversion Corral thread; so, Ill just post it in a new thread, and if the mods want to move it, I'm cool with that. This hat started life as an Akubra Stockman. I'm a long oval, and the hat guy at a local western wear store tried...

    Recommendation for Outdoors Hat

    I'm a long oval as well and have trouble finding hats that will fit other than custom. I bought one of the Akubra Travellers and like it. It stays in the truck in a hat saver, and if it gets messed up, I'm not out nearly the amount of money I would be if one of my custom hats was ruined. The...

    The International Wool Felt Consortium

    I had this hat made by the Colorado Mountain Hat Company. Smitty referred to it as outback/fedora on the order sheet. I had a duplicate made in black.

    Hat Wearing pre-1960 vs. 2017

    In a lot of the "Old West" pictures, the cowboys have their hats pushed further back on their heads than you'll see most folks wearing a cowboy hat in present times. This apple fell right next to the tree as did my father respectively. My grandfather was 5'7" tall; my father is 5'9" tall, and...

    The International Wool Felt Consortium

    I have two custom made outback fedoras, but they are reserved for knocking about. There is too much chance of their getting damaged in my day to day activities. While they aren't as nice, I like my wool fedoras because I won't be out of a lot of money if they get damaged. The drawback is that...

    Akubra Overload

    I have a gray Stockman. I did the brim similar to yours, but I can't get the side dents like I want them. I like how you have done the bash.

    It's the first rain we have had in months. I may just go sit outside in it and get soaked.

    What Hat Are You Wearing Today 1?

    I could put this one in the "new hats" or the "Akubra Overload" or the "fresh from the elements" threads, but I will put it here for today. Akubra Traveller in Regency Fawn Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Akubra Overload

    I have a custom made outback/fedora. It looks nothing like the "Indy" or Raylan Givens hat, but I have gotten "Indy" and "Raylan" responses to it. I've even gotten them with a cheap Stetson Cromwell wool hat that is black.

    THE SUNBODY ASSOCIATION

    For now, it wants to be my first attempt at a Gus. It was very tight, but after soaking it and letting it dry on my head, it fits nicely. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Show us your chocolate, your camel, your browns

    They do need an updated web presence. I emailed them earlier this week but haven't gotten a response yet. I'll give it until later next week before making a follow up call as I suspect they may be at the big rodeo.

    Show us your chocolate, your camel, your browns

    I was in Fairplay this summer and was just meandering around town when I saw the shop. They were unpacking from a cowboy action shoot. Smitty was kind enough to answer my questions, and then he offered to take a sizing and give me the template. I went ahead and ordered the hat. I have a...

    Of course, there is also evidence of me cowboying in a ball cap... o_O

    The Gun Club

    In the "Westerns Anyone" thread, a member posed the question as to whether or not the Gun Club hats were "westerns". I posited that they were more outdoor/safari. I think you are much more likely to see Gun Club hat on someone shooting clays or hunting than on a cowpoke. While I have no idea...
