I believe Australian rabbits used to be the primary source for Akubra's fur felt for hats. You need anywhere from 10 to 14 pelts for a hat, with the most suitable fur limited to certain parts of the animal. There are so many bloody rabbits here, and they breed so quickly, every man in the country would need to start wearing hats again to make any inroads into the feral population!Here is a bit more info from Akubra: [[SPOILER]] Edit: actually, doing a bit more research...
Just shut up and write a review! *I'm joking with you of course
I always got the impression that story was apocryphal. But it's pretty likely double breasted jackets were invented for the practical reason that, if the front of your coat was stained by, say, gunpowder or the guts of your enemy in battle, you could reverse the buttoning and 'make a clean breast of it' when on parade.Uniqlo have some field jackets for $70 or so in a range of colours. Looked decent quality, especially for the price. Failing that you could get one of fxh's...
Soon there will also be pictures of phlanges.
You might want to leave the room when I'm venting.
I thought it was your cryptic way of saying it was a private blog - like an exclusive nightclub, non-members are denied access to the real content, forced to listen to the party through a vent in the alleyway.
Single vent:
Some people (mostly Yanks) seem to get hung up* about single vent vs double vent vs ventless jackets. Personally, I could care less as long as it fits well and looks good. The oft-cited Cary Grant wore a ventless jacket in N x NW IIRC.*Small pun there for the fellas.
We've had a Tabacco Vanille split in the thread - Jimmy maybe you can start a straight tobacco split? Me, I'll take an eighth spliff split of the good stuff.
I know, that's not official and just for inspiration. Probably won't make the deadline as Monday am SYD time is Sunday pm NYC time. Will be voting though!
