Since 1962 when David and Dorothy Morgan started the company, David Morgan has been a family owned and operated mail order business presenting traditional, quality items discovered in the pursuit of their own personal interests. In addition to jewelry from the Pacific Northwest and their own line of Celtic jewelry, David Morgan offers Akubra® hats from Australia, a range of quality leathergoods, Tilley hats, clothing and luggage, and much more. Many David Morgan suppliers are also family run, putting their personal integrity behind their goods.
We are pleased to offer two additional hats from Akubra: The Mansfield High Country and the Kentucky Rancher.
The Mansfield High Country takes its name from the Victorian Alps region of Australia. It is the only area of Australia where deep snow falls annually. The raw edge curled brim is 4 inches wide, making it, along with the Territory, our widest brimmed hat. Comes with a braided hat band with horsehair tassels.
The Kentucky Rancher adds a Southern flair to the Akubra line. The pre-creased crown has a center crease with two side dents, known in the American West as a cattleman’s crease. The raw edge, rolled brim is 3-1/2 inches in the front and back and 3-1/4 inches on the sides. The braided cloth hat band has horsehair tassels.
After a prolonged absence, Tilley is reinstating their iconic Ivy Cap. Made with stylish Harris Tweed, the cap has an elasticized sweatband to ensure a comfortable fit. It has discreet tuckaway ear warmers and a Hydrofil® polyester lining to wick away moisture.
Harris Tweed cloth is produced in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland from 100% virgin wool using traditional methods. For centuries, the cloth was only known locally. In 1846, Lady Dunmore, widow of the landowner of Harris, the Earl of Dunmore, chose to have their clan tartan replicated by Harris weavers in tweed. Since then, Harris Tweed has become famous throughout the world, protected by its own Act of Parliament.
The wool, primarily from sheep on the Scottish mainland, is dyed before spinning. The cloth is woven on treadle looms at each weaver’s home, then returned to the factory for finishing. The resulting Harris Tweed is a beautiful, durable cloth with the natural warmth and water resistance of a pure wool.
