That hits a little too close to home for some of us. *cough* @Bamaboots *cough*
Hay now that’s Stetson’s technique. Leave that to the professionals. Oh wait that’s not a powdered, never mind. Carry on.
I have ordered four hats from them over the past 3 years and I thought the packaging was quite good each time. The only problem I had was that I ordered a 60cm stylemaster from them, and it was too small. Although it was only $17 to have it shipped to the Colorado, it cost almost $30 to sent it back for a refund. So, you have to be sure you know the sizing of each type of hat. For example, in the campdraft, I am a perfect 60, but the stylemaster is a definite 61cm. Had to learn that the hard way since there are no Akubra dealers anywhere near me.
First post here. But have been reading this thread for a while. I know a lot of you guys are looking for one in black. I just picked up this black campdraft from the Hattery. They only just got them in stock and haven’t updated their website yet. I’m sure a call could secure you one if wanted.
Thank you very much for that information! My email is off to the ladies at The Hattery!
Well, timing between USA and Australia being what it is, Trudi was on duty at The Hattery and replied immediately. The invoice for my black Camp Draft is being generated as I type. Thanks again nickjames1986 for that information!
Thanks for the heads up! Another email sent to Trudi and Naomi!
The Hattery now has the Black Campdraft up on their website. No pictures yet, but you can select the color option. Mine has already shipped.
I'll look forward to your opinion on the black color fast, brim flange & the felt as compared to your other fine hats, DD.
Thank you Jack. I haven't had any of the problems that have been discussed here. Keeping my fingers crossed that the quality is equal to my other Campdrafts.
What is their website url? Found it.... Hats Direct dot com
I wasn't thinking about customer service, boxing or felt molting really. Can't wait to see it.
It shows my size as unavailable. Trudi said it’s on order and she’ll email me when it arrives. I’m on the fence since I can get a full custom rabbit fur felt for about the same price.
I'm on the fence about it, too.... I have 2 new hats and 3 refurbs coming from Mike Miller and I'm thinking if I feel the need for yet another hat I'll be getting one of his lightweight Tonak rabbit or beaver blend fedoras.
I can’t believe Akubra killed off the taupe color Campdraft - a great color. If I had known, I would have ordered 3 of them and stored them away. Other than going to a funeral or wearing black tie, can’t imagine ever wearing a black hat.
I'm pretty bummed too that Akubra is discontinuing a bunch of hats. I lucked out and grabbed the last 3 Heritage Campdrafts that hatsdirect had, only because I emailed trudy. I guess the d/cd hats are going the way of vintage, need to get used or new old stock if you can ever find any. Otherwise, like the others I am thinking of moving on to custom.
I don't think the Taupe Fawn Camp Draft is discontinued. The Hattery has plenty in stock. I think the only colors we're losing with the discontinuation of the Campdraft Deluxe are Moonstone and Cedar Brown. Those are great colors, and I got 2 of each before they vanished. But my Taupe Fawn Camp Draft in Imperial felt is still one of my favorites.
Sorry to see Moonstone go. It has happened before that some CD colors have been discontinued such as the Mid Brown & Glen Gray. They rarely come up in the market now.
Luckily for me, I picked up a Moonstone just the other day.
If I remember correctly, you recently acquired another Camp Draft, Bluegrass Green was it?
