There’s few things I love more than my Akubra. My wife, the kiddies, and my dear old Mum of course, but I reckon my first Akubra would be a close second to all of them.
Here at Everything Australian, I like to divide our Akubras into four main styles: Country, Western, Fedora, and Summer Hats.
There are few things more Aussie than RM Williams Craftsman Boots.
Born of the harsh Aussie outback, for searing droughts and flooding rains, and they retain an inbuilt toughness that means your investment will pay off for years and years. In a world of throwaway fashion, it’s that sort of indefatigable quality that RM William’s devotees seek out.
Choosing a boot is not easy. Not if you’re like me and you choose a pair and wear them till they start walking themselves. When I’m looking to buy a new pair of boots, I don’t mind paying a bit extra if I know they’re going to last the distance. So buying new boots is a big purchase, and one I’ve given a lot of consideration over the years. Here’s my pros and cons for the three major Aussie boot brands.
Well bugger me, hasn't the year disappeared? It's almost that time again to gather the family around for some Christmas tucker and to give them something special in the stocking.

It's a funny old thing, to see someone take a brand new hat out of its box, one that's cost them a fair hand of dosh, a piece of craftsmanship that takes 19 stages and 60 sets of hands to create, to see a bloke take that beautiful hat from its exquisite boxing, and throw it on the ground and stomp on it.
One of the main questions we're always asked here at Everything Australian is lace-up or slip-on… what is best? Well, it depends on what your foot is like, what you're using them for, and how lazy you are. Me, I like a slip-on best because when I'm coming in and out from the workshop, the misses makes me take me boots off, and an elastic-sided number is easily the best for that.
