Kickin’ It Up!

March 29, 2013

Kickin’ up the back brim of your hat can add an additional flare to your Akubra. Your hat will have more of a fedora style than the traditional Aussie style.

It’s easy to kick up the back brim. All you need is a little steam from a tea kettle. Run the steam over the top of the brim for just a few seconds to get it soft. Then, push up the back from underneath with your thumbs. Push up at the base of the brim, right where it meets the crown.

You can watch this video to see how to steam your hat.

How to Adjust Your Welch Suspenders

March 15, 2013

Welch suspenders are world-renowned for their quality. They are made in the USA, in Hillsboro, Oregon. David Morgan sells a variety of suspenders ranging from formal to casual wear. They can be worn for light or for heavy, outdoor work. We also sell suspenders to hold up heavy utility belts worn by police officers.

Some customers have difficulty in adjusting the length of the suspenders. The trick into getting the clasps back into position is to use your thumbs on the front and your index fingers on the back. Once the teeth are in place, you must push up with your thumbs and push down with your index finger. You will feel the top of the clasp fall into place.

We’ve created a video that shows this. If you still have any questions, please contact us.

Ready for Adventure!

March 1, 2013


No search for treasure is possible without the essentials. Protect your head from blistering sun, spiders and snakes (or just rain) with a real, rabbit-fur felt hat. The Adventurer is an open-crown hat that can be shaped just like the legendary archaeologist’s own fedora. It was designed by Akubra with specs from the prop master of Indy IV.

Our leather gloves are made from deerskin or kangaroo. Don’t be fooled by how soft and thin the kangaroo leather is, it’s incredibly tough. Gloves are available in brown, black or gold.

 And for those rare cases where you just might need a bullwhip
