What did you order?
Federation IV in Brown Imperial and in Brown Deluxe, Heritage in Tawny Fawn, Deluxe in Heritage Fawn, Fedora in Burnt Oak, then......because I’m obsessive about having extras of things I like, I bought an extra Federation IV in Brown Deluxe to store away (it’s a mental defect with me). That’s 5 - I mis-counted. Did order an Akubra/RM Williams from Hat by the Hundred on 12-26, and Ordered a Stetson New York 100% Beaver Open Crown last week.

I’m jealous! I’m also very interested to see side by side comparison pictures.

Still waiting on delivery for 4 of the hats. Stetson is supposed to be delivered tomorrow - three Akubras waiting in customs in NY. I have always got them delivered before the tracking information ever said anything other than “waiting for clearance.” One has been waiting since Jan 4th.......

I wouldn’t be jealous, you undoubtedly have a richer and fuller life and have no need to excessively buy consumer goods as some form of consolation for a life lived badly. “Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal.”

The Stetson New York LE is a special hat. My tobacco colored hat isn’t quite as nice as my Phantom Grey, but they both have extraordinary felt.

That’s what I bought - tobacco colored, last one on sale at One 2 mini Ranch. It will be my first, and likely last, beaver hat - I am looking forward to seeing it.

It’s not only beaver, it’s almost vintage quality beaver. I have custom beaver fedoras whose felt doesn’t come close to the New York LE. I think you’re going to love yours. Keep us posted.

Where did you buy the Stetson New York?

Even in biblical times Mothing was a concern.....somethings never change!

Well, I’m excited for you and would like to see some pictures if possible.

You guys are awesome thanks. I like the wonkyness of the Indy turn, after looking at the photo I fixed the brim better to balance it out. Im so happy with Akubra. I have the CD and looking into getting the Squatter next. After seeing everyone's photos on the brotherhood I was sold.
Yeah, the guys here essentially sold me on an Akubra and I couldn’t be more happy. For two years after I received my Fed IV it’s been rained on at least ten times, pulling traffic duty at my job. My Fed IV gets better with every rain.

I’m so pleased with my two current Akubras, Sydney and Stylemaster that I’m contemplating purchasing a Federation IV. I really like the Tawny Fawn and the Moonstone. I have a Carbon Grey Stylemaster and a Regency Fawn Sydney. Either one or both of the Fed IV colors I mentioned would be perfect compliments to my wardrobe colors. What shipping method is most preferred coming from Hatsdirect? They show standard and EMS courier. I’m located in South Carolina.
Does anyone have side view pictures of how their Fed IV looks. I’ve searched a lot of posts but the picture links are unavailable/broken.

These photos are a couple of years old, but the hats haven't changed.

Thanks so much for the pictures. The side profile of the Fed IV looks great. I was a little concerned with the dimensional brim. I feel 2 1/2 works best for me from a straight forward view.
I know the pictures are a couple of years old but you made my choice between the two colors harder. I might just order both because I really like each. Did you use standard shipping?

I don't even notice the dimensional brim most of the time; with the difference being only 7 mm it's subtle and really doesn't call attention to itself.

...Did you use standard shipping?
Yes. I've ordered from both Hats Direct/The Hattery and Everything Australian and each of my hats arrived within four to ten days. But I live in the Los Angeles area so my hats didn't have to travel across the continent. Also, if you order later in the week your hat(s) will sit in Australia immobile for two days because Australia Post doesn't work on Saturday and/or Sunday.
