    If we are 30 Members, what is the next step? The shop will just order 30 hats and we all order by ourselves? And which sizes for how many hats? Sorry, if I ask, but you guys had done it before, I've read, so, please explain it to me.
     
  2. A hat shop has to make an order for the special run of hats from Akubra. The hat shop puts the hats in their inventory & we order them just like we do the other colors offered. I think the shop has to order at least 50 but are gauging our interest to cover at least 30 units to see if it is worth it to do.

    Ok, then it should be important for all to write down their hatsizes, right? Me, I'm a 59(cm). Don't know at the moment what it is in inches. 7 3/8? Or was this UK?!

    Just to confirm what gtdean said. As per Sam at the hat store Everythingaustralian, if we show enough interest in the hat he will confirm a go ahead with Akubra and then update his website so each individual purchaser will input their size requirement, shipping address and complete their payment. Sam will summarize the order and dispatch it to Akubra once we hit the target.

    We are at 19 interested members now. For members looking for larger sizes this hat will be offered up to size 64 like the other Camp Drafts on EA's site. A nice thin ribbon, bound brim is on the horizon, but the sooner we can get the orders in, the closer that horizon can be.

    It's Australian, so it is in cm.

    Hi Edward, if the price is the same range as the current offering on the EA site, can I count you in? Numbers are all important in this polling exercise.

    Congrats on the new hat DougC. Feel free to re-up anytime. In 3 months you may be hankering for another new lid so consider this some necessary lead time.

    thanks--I got a deal! And I REALLY wanted this particular hat--it's my first non-4x Stetson and the first 20x Open Road sold in San Antonio this year. See you in a few months...

    Duper,

    You already included me in your first post but I just wanted to confirm that you can count me in for a size 59. Thanks.

    You are in Landman.

    If we can get the numbers this will be a very interesting hat. Moonstone is a very eye catching and versatile shade of grey. It comes on very few Akubra models. 2 5/8th brim. Akubra does not have a single model at 2 5/8ths.

    For those folks who would like a special thin ribbon hat that looks good in the city or more rural surroundings with a midsize bound edge at a very affordable price this is the place to stop and drop their request.

    Duper.. you make it sound so good I may have to buy two hats!
    ... Anyway the Campdrafts are great hats and when you can get a special color and a 2 5\8s brim!
    A 2 5\8s bound brim.
    MAN... to good to be true!

    P.S. by the way Dupe...congrats on your 500th post!!!

    I would buy one of these shorter-brimmed campdrafts in a size 59. Count me in.
