    Nah, sad to say the last time I was in such an edifice I was taking my dad to Easter mass, and at the time I was letting my freak flag fly. I remember, though, that I was surprised to see people in shorts and t-shirts.

    I remember getting my first Fed IV a few years ago. I put my own bash in and was happy at first and like you not wanting to mess with it. Several weeks passed and I kept noticing slight imperfections that started bothering me. I then rebashed it. Since that time I have rebashed it several more times until I got it just right. These are great hats and you can play around with the bash all you want. Have fun with it.

    Neither can I, now.

    I actually couldn't resist adjusting it a bit last night. :)

    There you go. It can be an addiction and you have stumbled into a room full of enablers ;)

    I went out yesterday and bought a new tea kettle in expectation of my Fed IV's imminent (I hope) arrival. I see it's now sitting in NY Customs. A diamond bash awaits!

    Sure. Until you get it in your hands and it wants a Teardrop. :D

    Ha! Once it gets a look at me I'm sure it'll have one.

    Here you go. Sorry it took so long but it's been a rough few weeks for me.. The hat didn't do so well in shipping so I still need to steam and shape the brim a little to fix things but...

    Also, here's the bluegrass green Coober Pedy. Quite happy with the color.

    Thanks for that Motorcyclist! I am thinking of this hat for next Spring/Summer so now is the time for me to place an order with the 3 month wait. It will be my first really "white" felt hat. I think it will be a step up from my Akubra Traveller.

    Just thought I'd throw this out for comparison. All depends on what size brim you like but here's the Coober Pedy sand.

    FYI. Everything Australian is doing a 24% off sale for a few more hours. Not a bad time to place an order.

    Really?! That would be great, but it doesn't seem to work for me. :(
    Have a special link you can share?

    I goofed. It's Australian Gear that is doing the sale. Sorry about that.

    Aha! Thanks!
    The discount makes the price at Australian Gear cheaper than Everything Australian...

    A long-desired Banjo Paterson is en route for $157CAD delivered! Too bad the C$ is in the crapper so bad right now or this would have been a spectacular deal...
    Cheers, Motorcyclist! :D

    Found something that I failed to resist, as well.
    Woomera with a 6.69 inch (!) tall open crown,
    and a CEO for good measure (only an additional $2 to ship a second hat).
    Thank you for the heads up, Motorcyclist.

    I had a Balmoral in the Cart for just that reason, but decided (at the last moment) that it would have to wait! Now I have Non-Buyer's Regret!
