A great time to support local stores and Australian made manufacturing. Smart Alec Hatters (in Fitzroy, VIC) are having 25% off Akubras, felt hats, scarves, gloves and beanies.
Free shipping too - I think. I got free shipping in Melbourne.
Makes the Akubra very competitive against the usual online retailers (Gooleys, Everything Australian, Alingtons etc). Doesn't match Nungar, but Nungar takes forever to ship if they dont have stock.
Cattleman ($150, from $200)
Traveller ($157.50 from $210)
Stylemaster ($146.25, from $195)
Cooper Pedy ($176.25 from $235)
Just picked up a Traveller hat in Bran and Stylemaster. They are nice 'lifestyle' & urban alternatives to the #1 selling Cattleman or trying to avoid the Barnaby Joyce vibe :)
