Here's a follow up to my Akubra Arena purchase. It only stayed in its untouched form for about 10 minutes! I took a quick photo on the veranda for a historical record. Unfortunately the one feature I don't yet understand on my camera is "auto" and the photo turned out very small! It was a nice big stiff western hat with gorgeous red liner. Here it is after reblocking, brim trimming and ribbon change. I love this hat now. It was pretty cool as a cowboy hat, but it wasn't me, and was a bit much for metropolitan Tokyo.
