Bob, I'm itching to steam and iron that back to a pristine open crown and give it a new bash!

Thank you for all the likes and positive comments on my Akubra Bushman yesterday - but you may be taking them back today. I have always liked the way the crown came out (from the front), but I started playing around with the hat last light and added dents to the back, making it a kind of “Gus/Diamond.” The only thing I never liked about the original crease was the plain, round, look of the back of the crown. I know I’ve seen this done somewhere (probably on TFL), but can’t remember. So - better or worse?

Changes the profile somewhat.


The Gus/Diamond?

I too did something very similar on one of my open crown Stratoliners (the silverbelly) to both make it interesting and provide more dimension to the pale color.....my wife really liked it on this hat....
I believe it is posted earlier in the thread......but will post again if I can find the image......
