    My first three Akubras (and only ones, currently) are two Snowy Rivers and one Territory. All in Santone Fawn.

    Federation III, Mid-Brown (circa 2003)

    Followed by:

    Stockman, Glen Grey
    Cattleman, Sand
    Stylemaster, Carbon/Steel/Mid-Grey
    Campdraft, Taupe Fawn
    Leisure Time, Regency Fawn

    All are still in the rotation apart from the Fed III, which I sold here and replaced with the Campdraft. It always felt like too much hat, the felt never softened up - nor did the sweatband ever shrink to size - and the greenish cast of the Mid-Brown was a poor match for all my clothes.

    BlueGrass Green CampDraft. It is still my favorite - was actually on my head as I read this thread.

    The other Akubras I have are:
    Stylemaster in Acorn Fawn
    Stylemaster in Bluegrass Green
    FedIV in Brown
    Hampton in Cedar Brown
    and a Capricorn.
    I like Akubras ;)
     
  18. Add me to the list & same timeframe. Wondering how many Mid-browns are still out there?

    My first was the Slouch, in British Khaki, followed by a Cattleman, in Santone Fawn, followed by a second Slouch, in British Khaki. Yes, I like the Slouch... :)

    My RM Williams is a mid-brown, but it was my second Akubra.
    My first was a David Morgan Adventurer in moonstone.
    Currently waiting on a Campdraft in taupe fawn (unlike some others here I haven't got the shipment email yet - frown).
