The Bushman is a classic Australian stockman's hat, worn in the outback since before 1900. It is related to the old snap brim Fedora, and was the first hat imported by Akubra from England. It was also the first hat made by Akubra when they started manufacturing in the early 1900s. It continues to be appreciated both in Australia and America for its simple, straightforward style, and its practical comfort.
The Bushman is made in Akubra's Imperial Quality pure fur felt, fully lined. The brim is 3-1/4 inches wide, bound edge. The brim snaps down in front to better shade the eyes. It is supplied with a half inch ribbon band. The color is Nullarbor Tan (a dark beige), named after the great Nullarbor Plain of Western Australia. 5-1/2 inch open crown. Shipped open-crown (first picture) or choose a shape from the menu.
