A Hat Stand for Your Akubra

May 29, 2009

Many people ask how to store their hat when it isn’t in use.  The most common ways are to use a hook or set the hat on its crown. Both will work fine. But for long term storage, we recommend keeping a hat stretcher in the hat. This prevents the hat from shrinking over time from disuse. You can easily set the hat on its crown and put the stretcher inside. David uses a second method.

Put door stops on the hat stretcher. This way the hat can remain sitting upright. The brim will remain above the surface so it won’t bend over time.This also works when the hat gets wet. The entire hat can rest on the stretcher and the top of the hat will dry along with the rest.

The Burke and Wills

May 15, 2009

David Morgan is proud to present the Burke and Wills by Akubra.  This hat is part of Akubra’s Heritage Collection of premium hats.  It is a western-style hat with a crown that reaches to 5 inches at the front and 5 1/2 inches at the sides.

Like the Territory, the brim is a wide 4 inches.  There are 3 eyelets on each side. 

Unique for our line of Akubras is the center crease with side dents.  This shape is often found in the American West where it is known as the Cattleman’s Crease.  A horsehair band finishes off the hat with style.
