This stockman's hat is a true old favourite. This design was seen in the movie "The Man From Snowy River". Features a plaited bonded leather band. Akubra Hats are sized and measured in centimeter circumferences of the wearer's head. The head is measured using a dressmaker's tape, wrapped across the bare forehead and just above the ears. The measurement is rounded up to the next largest full centimeter: i.e. from a 57.5cm head measurement, a 58cm or 59cm hat is selected for fitting.
