So, has anyone here seen a black Leisure Time in person?
No but the Graphite Grey Banjo looks great. Unless you're in bright light it can appear black... And it's better felt.
Yes, I've seen a black Leisure Time in a shop in Melbourne. If fedoras look good on you and you like black ones, it's a really nice hat.
Personally I cannot wear a fedora. Tried one on once... first thought in my head was "I'm Clyde Barrow, I rob banks." It literally made me look like I'd walk into the bank, withdraw everyone else's money at gunpoint, shoot two bystanders, relieve the teller of her jewelry, and kiss her on the way out the door. Also fedoras tend to suit people smaller than me. Wide shoulders with a fedora on top looks like a toy hat. The only toy hat I'll wear is a cap with a propeller on top. I've got two of those.
No idea what the export versions are like because I've bought every Akubra I've ever had in person in shops in Australia but for comfort I'd pick the softer felt rather than the stiffer ones.
But that's one of the best reasons to wear one!
1.You obviously need to try on some bigger and wider fedoras.
2.I love my Interstellar Propeller cap. I'm amazed that there isn't a thread dedicated to them on this forum. Truly classic headgear.
^^^^^^What he said. All men look good in a fedora. You just need to try on a few more. I wouldn't want to look like Clyde Barrow, but Warren Beatty would be OK.
Thanks for the tip on Interstellar, Jackie. Those are great!
I've got the French version. (The one with the frog.)
Try one with a wider brim. I cannot stand stingey brims, but like mine in the 2 3/4 to 3 1/4 inch range.
ALL TOGETHER NOW!
We can see how many others will admit to owning a propeller cap. There is now a propeller cap thread at http://www.thefedoralounge.com/threads/propeller-caps-as-seen-in-cartoons.84863/
Oh good grief. Now I want one.
Never any worry about losing your cap in the wind because of the massive downforce that this aerodynamically brilliant design generates.
Is the Interstellar Propeller company about to be overwhelmed by a deluge of online orders?
Just bought my wife one of these. A very nice fedora, and the current exchange rate is great!
A new model from Akubra - The Kentucky
I tried to put in a link but it was unsuccessful. You can find it at Hats by the Hundred. I saw an Instagram posting from Strand Hatters as well.
Wide curled/pencil rolled brim.
It would be nice to see some more moderate brim size models as well.

Received my Territory recently in Khaki. I've been wearing it out for yard work the past couple of weekends.
I like it!
Instagram revealed another new Akubra this morning. Our western style wide brimmed friends will be pleased.
The Mansfield High Country Hat.
Sorry, the only picture I could find was on Instagram.
Sam at EA said he would be updating his web shop with the new offerings shortly.

That Kentucky Rancher reminds me of the Outlaw Josey Wales and the Mansfield is a low crowned Golden spur without side holes? and they both have the Arena horsehair hatband? Damn them, like I need more hats. OK, can anybody who has seen Sorrel tan irl tell me about it? Is it dark brown or light?
Akubra Lawson, a big brim version of the Banjo Patterson., in heritage fawn.
