The Bushman is a classic Australian stockman's hat, worn in the outback since before 1900. Known for its rugged durability and generous proportions, the iconic Bushman from Akubra is a favorite here at JJ Hat Center.
Note: This style may run slightly on the smaller side, being a rigid felt. The crown is less ovular than round. If in doubt, order the next size up!

**This style will ship with an open crown unless requested otherwise. If you would like the crown to be shaped by one of our specialists using steam, please use the additional information field before checkout, or email firstname.lastname@example.org with your order number and desired shape (center crease, teardrop or telescope). Please note that if the hat is shaped, then the order is deemed final sale, and cannot be returned or exchanged.
Using a tape measure, measure the widest part of your head (just above the ears and eyebrows) to the nearest 1/8th of an inch.
If you have not purchased a new hat recently, please remeasure your head, as sizes may change depending on hair style, weight loss/gain, and age.
Please also keep in mind that hat sizes vary depending on the manufacturer, so if you are unsure of which size to order, please contact us on email@example.com and we’ll be happy to advise.
If you are in between hat sizes, try this cotton sizing to make adjustments at home.
