G'day Friends, This is an Aussie review for ya. When I moved downunder one of the first pressies my hubby got for my son was this hat. It is an Akubra with a croc band. He was over the moon. He wears it all the time. You see the sun it really strong here and we are advised to wear a hat most of the time. So the next time you watch "The Man From Snowy River", just know the hat was not just to make him look sexy.It is the US version of a Stetson.It is made of fur and felt, and the inside has a strip on leather for sweat absorption. His hat also came with a spacer band to make it fit properly, and allowing for growth.It is a kahki color and goes well with jeans.He really loves his 'kubra. We have a slang here-fair dinkum-which means, are you telling the truth, and Akubras are Fair Dinkum Aussie. Cheers :)
Update On Nov 19, 2008: When you go to see the new epic film Australia, take a look at Hugh Jackman's hat......Yes if is an Acubra. Good enough for Baz and Hugh is good enough for me.
