    Thank you Jeff.

    It's nice and clean, not going to be in daily rotation, more of a occasion hat.

    Wow! That's a great hat -- manages to be both flashy yet understated at the same time. Coooool :)

    Thanks everyone for all the well wishes.
    Jeff, very cool pics. Wear that one anywhere.
    Joao, make sure you make plenty of occasions to wear it. If not, it's just a piece of a collection.

    Hello,

    I am buying a Coober Pedy, have to decide between Sand and Bluegrass Grenn.

    Any feedback on this will be greatly appreciated !!

    I live in Mexico, not a place for heavy dark hats !
     
  9. I'd go for Sand. BGG is going to be too dark for that climate IMHO....

    I personally like the bluegrass green. At the same time I don't own one. I have a light green fedora with a 3" brim from Art Fawcett. Very versatile. At the same time all the colours you have mentioned can go with just about anything. Here is a web page that shows the bluegrass green with other colours for comparison.

    Thanks for all your help.

    Sincerely.

    Rodolfo.

    Well Johnny,

    I finally made up my mind and ordered 3 hats from Sam.

    1.- Santone Fawn Snowy River, cant get more Australian than that, will ship right away.

    2.- Cattleman in Fawn, will be pampered and well taken care of, will ship right away.

    3.- Coober Pedy in Bluegrass Green, this one will ship in 3 months.

    Will send you pics of them as soon as they arrive here, all what Weinstein and you told me helped me a lot !

    Sincerely.

    Rodolfo.

    Hi, Rodolfo --

    I'm sure you'll love them all! I just finished turning my recently arrived Akubra Arena into this "gambler" style. Went from a very tall cattleman crown and 4" brim to a 4.25" telescope crown and 3 3/8" brim. This is also my first attempt at adding a pencil curl to the brim. I'll post more on how I did that soon.

    Howard
