    Akubra Overload

    Almost a dozen years later my BGG CD was getting pretty tired. Faded and sweat stained. So a new one has arrived from Sam at EA. It has been many years since I have worked on an open crown hat. I hope I am as pleased with the new one as the old one. The old one is so soft and comfortable. Sort...

    Stetson Open Road Straw

    I did give the outlet shop a call today. No Open Roads in felt or straw in my size. Same for Stratoliners. I have ordered the base model 6X straw from a Canadian retailer. Hopefully it will be here next week. The photos they texted to me of the specific hat I purchased looked OK. I have...

    Akubra Campdraft

    Wow you sure have the knack of putting a cattleman’s crease into a Campdraft. I think I need to order one in and try that. Compared to a Stetson Open Road how is the room in the crown once you bash it like this? ,,,Mike in Canada

    Stetson Open Road Straw

    Much appreciated everyone! I do own the natural hemp Stratoliner. The OR hemp might seem and look a bit to similar so I was thinking of trying the shantung straw as I do not own any shantung in my small straw hat collection. I did not find the sage version online for the good size and a price I...

    Stetson Open Road Straw

    I have been considering a Stetson Open Road Straw (shantang non-vented). I have seen it offered in two colours, silverbelly and taupe. I am leaning towards silverbelly. This model goes for around $130 retail. I think it would be more breathable than the basic lesser expensive shantang straw that...

    Hi all, long time no see. I still love my brimmed hats and wear one every day. 30 + fedoras hanging in my office. I sort of maxed out a few years ago so I pulled back on any new purchases. 6 Campdraft in 4 different colours as an example. Well after all these years it is time to “refresh” a few...

    Quality, leather briefcases & luggage

    I am ordering the Tilley Intrepid IV bag today. Being Canadian I am sort of partial to being able to purchase a Canadian made product even if I have to pay a premium for it. About a month ago I picked up an American made canvas and leather satchel from a company called NutSac. Yes NutSac. They...

    Akubra Campdraft

    Nice to see someone sporting the Fedora Lounge version again. I have not been on in awhile. I still remember Sam from Everythingaustralian calling me up here in Canada in the middle of the night to talk about putting this special factory order together. I was very confused for a couple of...

    Tilley Hat - Cancer Warning

    Tilley said if the hat was unworn and new and you purchased it from them, not another retailer they would accept it for an exchange on another model. You did not need the original packaging to do the return. You could stuff it in a large envelope and you would have to pay the postage to them...

    Tilley Hat - Cancer Warning

    BaldingBonce, On your behalf, I would be willing to place a call to Tilley's head office (no pun intended) and see if they would be willing to make some sort of amends. Perhaps a gentle nudge from a fellow Caanuck to encourage them to be good corporate citizens and the like. It is the least I...

    Tilley Hat - Cancer Warning

    I have had a Tilley LTM5 for 15 or more years and I think it has served me well. I am also a bald guy with very fair skin. I do see your point about the venting allowing light through. I still prefer the nylon hats to the cotton duck for feel. I think their organic cotton hats feel nice to the...

    The Fedora that fits your face.

    CD was my preferred. For some reason I found the crown on the Indy Style Fed just a bit too tall, so I would give that one last place if it was a straight ranking response. All the others are good. ,,,Mike in Canada

    I don't drop by as often these days but this is the one thread that really draws me in. I love my Akubras. You can find me in one most everyday. I am glad to see we are all still keeping them in business. Looking good gentleman! ,,,Mike in Canada
