Greetings, and seasonal salutations, my antipodean friends!
Yes, the season of good cheer and many beers is upon us, once again! And in accordance with the traditions of the time of year, I intended to gift my
son with something that he has wanted for as long as he and I have been in contact with one another. He wants a hat like mine! Now, when a child with
Aspergers and ADHD says "Dad, I want a hat like yours" what they are really saying is "Dad, I want you to find me a hat which is precisely the same
as yours, in every conceivable regard, from the type of leather used, to the brand printed on the inside, and everything in between".
Now, I do not often appease my sons particular symptomology, but given that this is a gift we are talking about, I thought that it would be quite a
thing to actually nail it exactly.
However, I have been stymied. My hat was made by The Australian Bush Hat Co. Do you think I can find a single active website for that company? I
tried their email address, and that appears to be defunct. I am out of ideas here. I have looked over other brands, but none appear to offer a hat
enough like mine to bother with, and I was hoping to start my search for a hat with the originators of my head adornment.
So... you Australian members, friends... please, if you know how to get hold of the company in question, I would very much like to have a functional
e-mail address, or website for them, assuming they are still in business. I know that they were in a spot of bother for claiming that some of their
hats were made in Australia when they were actually part manufactured in India, but I cannot see how that alone would have destroyed the company
entirely! Please, if you know anything, let me know!
