The Iconic Crocodile Dundee Hat

Although three decades have gone by, Crocodile Dundee is still a well-loved movie. When mentioning the name, most people will immediately say, “That’s a knife!” Crocodile Dundee was a tremendous hit and spawned two sequels.

It may be years later, but we still get customers who call and ask if they can get “The Crocodile Dundee hat.” Paul Hogan, who portrayed Crocodile Dundee wore the black Down Under, made by Akubra. It was a popular hat for many years, but Akubra discontinued it a few years ago.

The band he wore was a crocodile hat band, and we offer a farm-raised crocodile hat band with or without teeth. It can be added to almost any hat.

If you want to have a Crocodile Dundee hat, you can make your own using a black Snowy River. Although the Snowy River has a pinched telescope crown, and the Down Under had a round telescope crown, the look is similar. In fact, one of our customers developed his own system for transforming a Snowy River into a Down Under.

Akubra does offer their own version of the Snowy River with a Crocodile band called, The Croc. But US Fish & Wildlife regulations covering crocodile are stringent and we cannot effectively import it.



Possum Wool to Take Off the Chill

January 4, 2019

While parts of the country are downright frigid, there are other parts where there’s just enough chill in the air to need a pair of gloves. Our possum/merino wool gloves can do the trick in both places. The lightness and warmth of possum wool, combined with the softness of merino wool proved a warmth and comfort for your hands. They are also thin enough to be used as a liner in a pair of mittens or thicker gloves.

For those who still need the dexterity of the fingertips, we also provide fingerless gloves.
