With David’s passing, it has given us pause to look back at our company throughout the years. David Morgan began as Austral Enterprises in 1962. Many items that found their way into the catalog began as unique items that David and Dorothy found in Wales. (David spent much time there over the years and could speak Welsh. He was a staunch advocate for Welsh independence.)
The photos below were taken from a catalog in 1980. The models are usually family and friends. Enjoy this blast from the past.
Welsh Fisherman’s Smock
Hickory Shirt (not the same maker of our current Hickory Shirt.)
The Slouch (we still carry the Slouch, and nothing has changed on this Classic.)
And nothing has changed on caring for your Akubra!
We are fortunate here at David Morgan to be located near a small river called, “North Creek.” For many years the Army Corps of Engineers and the local municipal governments and businesses have worked to improve the quality of the watershed. Not only has the salmon population returned, but many other species have taken up residence along the creek and the adjoining ponds. Below are just a few species.
If you ever drop by our store, take a few minutes to take a walk on the paths along the North Creek!
In this first video, Mike shows you how to create the Open Telescope and Pinched Telescope bash.
In this second video, Mike shows you how to create the classic fedora look and the cattleman’s crease.
