    That's correct. Picked up the two Campdrafts plus the large Akubra Woomera as well as a couple of other hats from Panos IMG_20210317_172104.jpg

    Thanks Panos. I'm loving the Campdrafts.
    We've been lucky with blue skies all week. Spring is in the air.

    Ja, it's a 57, but I didn't buy it new. Bought it used, or rather, only very slightly used.

    No, they don’t and they haven’t for well over 4 months. You can’t order a taupe CampDraft from Everything Australian and they are not available at Hats by the Hundred either. David Morgan is supposed to start stocking them to replace the Bushman, but they will only have it in black and silverbelly.

    Well, then I stand corrected and that is bad news. As I said, that color is one of my favorites. Something about that shade that is classy, elegant and casual all at the same time.

    Well I just had a look at Hatsdirect and the only Taupe Fawn Campdraft that I could add to the box was a size 58.
    If there is someone looking for size 58 and wants that color this may be your last chance.

    My black CD came today. I ordered it on the 16th, and it was delivered today. Can't ask for better service than that! I am very happy with it! 20210324_113841.jpg 20210324_171901.jpg 20210324_172921.jpg 20210324_172908.jpg

    Thanks Jack, the felt is as good, if not better than my previous CDs. When I took it out of the box I noticed it had a soft hand for a CD. No black on my hands after a spritz of water, steam, and creasing.
     

  14. Looks great, Ed. Did you notice any decline in quality or workmanship compared to earlier hats? The comments of some here recently had me wondering.

    How about a group photo with all your Campdrafts?

    I received my Black Camp Draft yesterday, and I am in agreement with DD. This hat looks and feels every bit as good as my other CDs.

    Full points for Trudi and Naomi. This was my 10th hat from them, so they left out the "Shaping and Care Instructions" and tossed-in a hat sponge.

    Wow you sure have the knack of putting a cattleman’s crease into a Campdraft.

    I think I need to order one in and try that.

    Compared to a Stetson Open Road how is the room in the crown once you bash it like this?
