"Akubra" Long Brim Felt Hats

Christian Dior
Lanvin
Long brim hats are an amazing look. Originating from from the early 1870's designed by an Australian hat maker Benjamin Dunkerley. Receiving the name "Akruba" in 1912 by Dunkerley daughter after his death. That hat can be amazingly worn with a button up shirt; I'd button completely to the neck. Or a bit more casual with a plain T-Shirt and a slack. The hats are versatile and made for men and women. Similar to the Korean "Gat," the Jewish "Fedora," and the Western "Cow Boy Hat."
