And also - (@ Edward) - I thought the front brim would snap down naturally i.e. with no need for steaming?
My Campdraft was noticebly stiffer all over than any of my other Akubras (as I'd tend to ecpect with a more 'Western' style). The brim as new was raised all round and din't seem to have any snap to it (very different than the Federations). I had to steam it to get it to curve downwards at all. No idea how representative this is of the model more broadly as I've only ever shaped that one, but I was under the impression that, it being a Western hat, it didn't have a snap brim as part of the design.
