ManofKent- Sam confirmed that there was a mistake and the hat was not produced. Nothing he can do about it at this point so I chose a Woomera instead. Not what I wanted but who knows, I might like it. A new hat is more exciting than a refund.

Looks a good hat. Too western for my part of the world, but with that nice tall open crown, it's on my watch list as a hat that would be great for a brim trim and fedora conversion :)

Hope you enjoy it.

Brian, Akubra seems to have discontinued the Silver Spur. So it may no longer be available. Sam should be able to tell you that. I'd be surprised if he doesn't get right back to you with an update.

The hat is discontinued now but it wasn't four months ago when I ordered it. I paid for the hat and recieved an order confirmation email. I then waited over four months and decided to ask about my order. Sam apologized and said that there was some mistake and he wasn't going to be able to fulfill my order. He asked me what I'd like to do. I didn't really want a refund so I chose a different hat.

The other day my Akubra Campdraft in Bluegrass Green in 61 cm. (size 7-5/8) arrived from Everything Australian. I had ordered it in mid-November. A few days later Sam had dropped me an email advising that there would be a short delay, that was no problem for me. Anyways it took about 3 weeks for my latest acquisition to arrive from down under, inclusive of Canadian customs clearance. I'm quite pleased with the service, nice hat too!

Has anybody used the faster shipping from E A?? My campdraft shipped nov.28 and it's still in LA..I wonder if it is just as safe as the 10 day shipping by registered mail.

For what it's worth, I ordered a Kiandra from Everything Australia.au. approximately three months before I received it. It was my first Akubra, and also first time ordering a hat from outside of this country. Everything went as planned. The price was excellent and that hat was excellent. I received an email confirmation after I ordered the hat, then another email stating that it was shipped, with 10 days shipping. It came as expected. I guess, if you are not in a rush, it is a good place to order from.

I would/will order from EA again, they have proven themselves to me.

Reviving this old thread. After several days of sitting on a decision, I went ahead and placed an order for a Bluegrass Green Campdraft from Everything Australian. The price was much lower than any other retailer, US or Australian, and lower than many second-hand hats I have seen on the ‘bay. We will see how long it takes now…

I ordered an Akubra Stockman from them two years ago and it arrived at my home in Oregon 8 days after I ordered it, I was super happy with the whole transaction.

It’s been 30 days since ordering, and so far, nothing. The site said “leaves warehouse in one business day“ when I ordered, and my invoice says the same. Now the site says there is a 6 month wait. I may be caught in between the last stock item and a made to order hat.

Update: In response to my email inquiry, Tim apologised and said there had been an error in their stock count at the time of my order. He offered to let me switch to a silverbelly campdraft which was in stock, or if I couldn’t wait 6 months, to cancel. Since bluegrass green is hard to get at the moment, and the price was right, I suppose I will wait. I already have three hats on the way this month, and by May a new hat will be a nice surprise.
