The 'Digger' (Australian slouch hat) hat is nearly as old as the Australian fighting man. It was originally made
from rabbit-fur felt or wool felt, is turned up on the side, possibly to keep it out of the way of a lance held in a stirrup cup or a rifle
& bayonet carried over the shoulder).
Contrary to popular belief the word 'slouch' does not refer to the turn-up (leaf). The word slouch refers to any hat with a brim that droops down.
The brow can be secured either side by press studs to keep the brow from flopping around. It has an adjustable chin strap and a mini zip up pocket in the lining.
Available in 3 colours:
