    For comparison, here's an Akubra "Fedora" in Burnt Oak. The colors are very close.

    Are they a different color? Slightly. The felt is equally stiff and responds poorly to reshaping on both. Don't recommend either. Bluegrass green and taupe fawn were the best felt quality. Could just be batch differences, the guy applying the stiffener had a bad day or something and I got lucky on the others.

    Tommy , the RM doesn't have a taller crown does it ? Looks like its just the crease to me . Just the same Crown and dimensions as a reg. CD . Guessing the RM is on the left , and CB on the right . The Right looks darker .

    Sorry for not being clear. RM on the left and CD or right, both a dark brown. The RM does have a taller and slightly tapered crown. Real fight to get that factory crease out of it.

    The felt is not so great on either as I said.

    Off topic, but the burnt oak Fedora is a nice looking hat @Frunobulax

    Liking the Moonstone best Jack. You...?

  18. I do really like the Moonstone. I love the color & I love the way my diamond crease came out. I love CD's & it doesn't bother me if they're not soft as "buttah". The comfort comes from the overall fit & the quality of the sweat. The Heritage Moonstone has the better grade of leather & it is also wider. I haven't measured it but it is definitely wider than the sweat in the older Mid Brown.

    The Mid Brown was an early attempt with an open crown for me, & it got a teardrop. At some point I will probably redo the crease but haven't yet.

    The Bluegrass Green got a C-crown. It's among my favorites because of the versatility of the color. I'm real happy with it as well.

    I wish they offered a CD in Navy blue.

    CD in blue is a great idea. Loungers have previously banded together to place a bulk order for a non-standard Akubra. Perhaps we should try that for a navy blue CD?
