    Strand Hatters - Sydney - Worst New Hat Order Ever

    I recently ordered two Akubra Homburgs from Strand Hatters in Sydney. I've ordered Akubras multiple times from other Australian sellers: Hats by the Hundred, The Hattery, and Everything Australian (i.e., easily more than 4 orders from each, mostly multiple hats) - never an issue, but Strand...

    Fedoras afield

    I think this thread needs to be renamed. Apparently, a lot of people just want to vainly post pictures of hats, fedora title notwithstanding.

    Akubra Coober Pedy colors

    The Coober Pedy is a favorite of mine: have it in santone, oatmeal, bluegrass green, brown, and khaki. Khaki is my favorite.

    That hat will be haute couture in Lancaster, Pa.

    Akubra Campdraft

    No, they don’t and they haven’t for well over 4 months. You can’t order a taupe CampDraft from Everything Australian and they are not available at Hats by the Hundred either. David Morgan is supposed to start stocking them to replace the Bushman, but they will only have it in black and...

    Akubra Campdraft

    I can’t believe Akubra killed off the taupe color Campdraft - a great color. If I had known, I would have ordered 3 of them and stored them away. Other than going to a funeral or wearing black tie, can’t imagine ever wearing a black hat.

    Ask a question, get an answer

    What type of clear vinyl material does Akubra use to line the top of their lined hats? I’m looking for a relatively technical description/ trademarked name. I’m thinking of buying it in sheets and would like to use it to line the underside of my leather sweat bands to prevent perspiration from...

    Velour Felt - crushed or matted down marks

    No, it’s new. I just tried a suede brush (with the soft metallic bristles) instead of just a hat brush and it helped considerably.

    Velour Felt - crushed or matted down marks

    I have a Selentino velour finish hat where the finish seems to have been crushed or matted down in a certain area. I’ve tried brushing to lift the nap, but it hasn’t helped much - can one apply steam to a velour finish hat, or will it mat down the finish? Any other suggestions for raising the...

    Akubra questions

    Wow, way to bury this sincere question in a generic thread.......the moderation helps create a moribund site, methinks.

    Akubra questions

    Excuse my presumptuousness as a newbie, but I have read through many threads on this site regarding getting special order Akubras and I’m wondering why that seems to have stopped years ago. Has Akubra absolutely killed the idea? I would love to get a Federation IV in Fern Green (yes, I know...

    Show us their hats!

    Uh, there’s more chemistry there than genetics, me thinks.

    Gallery - Akubra Campdraft

    The mid brown pictured is an Akubra/RM Williams - it comes pre bashed - got it about 2 weeks ago. With effort and steam, you could probably get into a dome and bash as you like. I’m not sure, other than being pre bashed that there is a material (any?) difference between it and a Campdraft. Reg...

    Gallery - Akubra Campdraft

    For anyone interested, picture shows from left to right, mid brown RM Williams hat, cedar brown Campdraft, and burnt oak Fedora. Probably only useful to show the relative shades of brown, not the actual color.

    I love the Fed IV!!

    That’s what I bought - tobacco colored, last one on sale at One 2 mini Ranch. It will be my first, and likely last, beaver hat - I am looking forward to seeing it.

    I love the Fed IV!!

    Still waiting on delivery for 4 of the hats. Stetson is supposed to be delivered tomorrow - three Akubras waiting in customs in NY. I have always got them delivered before the tracking information ever said anything other than “waiting for clearance.” One has been waiting since Jan 4th...

    I love the Fed IV!!

    Federation IV in Brown Imperial and in Brown Deluxe, Heritage in Tawny Fawn, Deluxe in Heritage Fawn, Fedora in Burnt Oak, then......because I’m obsessive about having extras of things I like, I bought an extra Federation IV in Brown Deluxe to store away (it’s a mental defect with me). That’s 5...
