    What is this hat?

    A lid that has a crown just like a fedora, complete with ribbon...but it had a bill on it like a ballcap. It didn't look cheap, it looked like a well-made fur felt hat. Have you ever seen anything like this? What is it called? Who sells such a thing? Thanks

    Hello friends, I'm considering buying a MODERN Stratoliner. I have a few vintage lids, but my only modern made ones are Akubras. My question is, how does the felt compare to Akubras? Is it similar quality and softness or is it perhaps a bit better? Other than materials, how would the quality...

    I'm planning a thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail in 2018. Give me your opinion of the right hat! I'd especially love to hear from experienced backpackers. I'm looking at the Tilley Airflow LTM6, advantage to be good ventilation, reasonable water resistance and of course that chin strap and...

    Flight Jackets for dummies...please skool me...

    Thank you, Regius...in fact I have been looking at Cooper on eBay and in my budget they seem to be what I'm looking for. I may move up to better stuff later, but they look decent for starters. I've been seeing nice looking Coopers going for $100-150 in my size (which I'm happy to say is...

    FS: Akubra Federation IV (Tawny Fawn, 59)

    Nice looking lid! Does it fit exactly like a true 59 or is it a bit tight or loose?

    1950's German (probably Teichert) brown leather trench coat

    I'll meet you at 0200 near the entrance of Kaiser Wilhelm Gedächtniskirche. Wear the coat. Come alone and tell no one. You will know it is me because I will ask for a light, and I will have Chesterfields. I will have the microfilm. :)

    Akubra Advice

    The Fed works great for you. As others have said, a Campdraft would mix it up a bit, either bluegrass green or moonstone. Or save up for something different if like!
