    Update from Steve himself!

    “Hey James. Heads up I will be shipping your LC hat out tomorrow, friday. I am working it up today. Sorry for the delay, I had to wait on my factory to get my last order of bodies to em, which they failed to do before xmas before they shut down for yearly cleaning and vacations. Anyways, I will email you the ship number tomorrow. Steve”

    Steve has still not sent tracking. His sister informs us they’ve had bad weather there and to “not worry” that we will get the hat. I’m beginning to doubt.

    Lovely!

    Would you be willing to pass along the info for Steve's sister? I threw some money into the AB black hole around 2009 but never got a hat.

    As expected, out of the box the bash was a little loose, so with the help of some friends on the Facebook Indy cosplay groups, I got it looking great. This is my first Rabbit fed, so it’s hard to compare it to the beaver but overall I love it, easily becoming my new favorite. The only problem I have is two little glue stains on the ribbon, other than that it’s perfect. It’s weird but I love the way beaver is soft and moldable but I also love that Rabbit is nice and firm and holds its shape.

    Would be kind of you to supply a contact for Steves sister since the one on his websites appears to be incorrect. Much appreciated.

    I’m not taking his business over. When he retires AB is no more. The brand and his Indy 4 hats, Raiders hat will continue though the the AB legacy collection.

    Hey Indyfan89. I’m impressed with the frequency of your comms with SD. Me not so lucky. I’m pretty much being ignored after numerous attempts by me and promises from him. Year long wait and payment was sent promptly. I am surprised he claims that he is retiring with your hat being one - if not the last one. Wonder what happens to the other whom placed and paid for their orders. No product, no refund - what’s that being defined as......... I get the feeling there are others in the same situation as me. I have also tried to contact Marc Kitter as per his website. No reply, does this guy even exist???? I would appreciate if you can supply a contact for SD sister as all the other contact info for SD himself has failed.

    Bendingoak, seems like you have some inside knowledge of AB. With talks of SD’s retirement, what do you expect is going to happen with paid outstanding orders? Who is the Marc Kitter character on his website? Is his website going to announce his retirement? Are you the owner of Pennmanhats and also the administrator of the AB website?

    I will not supply anyone's personal info on this forum. If you're determined to get the product you paid for as I was then, do some digging on Facebook and other social media outlets and you will find it easy. If I can find it so can you.

    You are probably aware that Bendingoak is John Penman.He pretty well explains things above.Steve Delk and John are friends.John has taken over a single segment of AB hat business,the Legacy hat model.John obviously owns his own business.
    Marc Kitter and I believe a partner are in Europe and operate as Adventurebilt Deluxe.
