fedora

I would have to agree with Fisk on this one. I own an Akubra Federation myself and I must say it is the best fedora I've owned yet, in my short existence.

Akubra isn't hard to bash. You can find a good tutorial from http://www.whyaxis.net/indy/hatshaping/hatshaping.html

Rendering Fisk, at the hatsdirect site I saw there are two Federations. Is the different purely the quality of felt?

The Akubra Federation Deluxe has better felt and better contrast. The felt is lighter brown than on the regular.

It looks great, but it looks like a very daunting task... something that I could not handle, although the finished product looks simply fantastic.

The hat is bendable when you wet it. Many people do it with steam, but you can put it under running water and completely wet it before bashing. You can also use a spray bottle.

Dry-bashing works sometimes.

I know everyone here praises their akubras...so i need to know if the delux is worth it. 100 dollars seems a lot for a hat to me. But I guess to you people who have aldens it's nothing...because those are some expensive shoes.

You could also get an Optimo. They are $400 each.

If you want the Deluxe, but can wait, you could also consider Lee Keppler's fedora. http://www.adventure-supply.com/fedora.htm

But Lee Keppler's fedora is $140, and right now the current wait time is like... 9 months. I had been really considering getting a Keppler, but I've decided to get an Akubra Federation Regular.

In Christ,
Shane

Hey... Thanx for the link to the Lee Keppler hats! Does it come already bashed? $40 extra for a great looking hat is worth it to me.

Yes it comes already bashed, according to your requirements. The hat looks a little different in every scene. I believe you tell Mr. Keppler which scene you'd like the bash to match, and then you'll get it like that. But like I said, the wait time right now is over 9 months, so be patient, and I'm sure you'll be pleased.

In Christ,
Shane

Can the Federation Standard withstand rain and snow?

or can only the Federation Deluxe really withstand heavy rain?

Yes. The Akubras are the Terminators of fedoras... I don't want to sound mean at all, but were you even listening to Renderking? I feel bad for the guy, he comes here and talks about how great the Akubra is, and gets asked questions where the answers have already been said... I'm not mentioning any names, and again, don't want to sound mean, or offend, but please, re-read what's been said before you ask questions, or we'll have to start an FAQ section about Akubras!

God bless, and have a great, God-filled week,
Shane

well Fisk loves talking about the Akubra you know Just giving him some excuses to talk about it more!


Okay so they're both indestructable but the Deluxe is even a little stronger?

I appreciate your stories Fisk, thank you for letting us know about the Akubra

I think I'm going to get a wested first...then the Akubra. I think I'll feel more comfortable wearing the Akubra when wearing the jacket...dunno just fits the picture better I guess...

but first I need a new pc!
