Sources for unblocked felt
I've tracked down a few online sources courtesy of Google, but none of them appear (at first glance) to carry that great of a product. Is there a place that makes higher quality hoods or capelines available to 'Joe Schmoe'? I'd like to get as close to Akubra as...

I purchased this hat as an alternative to my 15 year old Panama which was starting to show some wear and tear. I considered both...
