    AS with most things, it's what you're comfortable with. I have an Akubra Campdraft (basically the same design) which I bashed as a Fedora (including steaming the brim down in front); I wear it with anything I'd wear a fedora with (mostly earthtones, as it's silverbelly). I tend not to wear it with denim as I'm not really much into the Western wear look, but I can see that working if it's a style you favour.

    Im squarely in the "wear what you want" category these days. I was pretty uptight about what I was supposed to wear with a hat right up until I started wearing them. Once I got comfortable wearing a hat, I realized I didn't really care what I had on when I grabbed my hat, I just liked wearing my hat.

    Here's the photo I was looking for. This Lounger (not seen much lately), accessorized his Stetson No. 1 Quality with a bathrobe, chicken wing, and glass of Cabernet.

    Sometimes you just need to throw caution to the wind.

I know some here will demand I be flogged for mixing khaki with my Open Road but I only get compliments in public. I wear it with t-shirts, Jeans or even a nice dinner jacket and slacks. Probably the most versatile hat you can wear. However you are comfortable wearing it then just do it! Best wishes to you.
