This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
My friend Kathleen really wanted to make a proper Australian Digger for Anzac Day this year, and so I made this hat for her.

This is an accessory (find with glasses) for teens and adults, male and female.
Put the recolor and the mesh files into your downloads or saved sims folder.

I designed it to be an accessory so that there is more flexibility with the hairstyles; this does not mean the hat will work with all hairstyles, it works with a handful of them from each group – but a choice of 4 or 6 hairstyles is still better than just one! Both designs are available for all groups mentioned.

This should be compatible with all EPs.

Note: This currently does NOT work with the PETS EP. The 'fix' we know of doesn't work on this mesh Hopefully Maxis will give us a working patch

Made with Wes' Unimesh Plugin, thank you Wes! And thank you to Dr Pixel, HystericalParoxysm, and Delphy who saw me through the project.

Tech stuff: There are two new meshes included (one for male, one for female), and two recolor files for the different designs (that work for both male and female). The mesh had 4 rows of vertices added to the one side of the Maxis cowboy hat in order for it to be shaped nicely, so it is well within Maxis limits. Recolor info in the readme.

I may be American (who will look up ANZAC as soon as I post, I promise) but I've loved these hats for years. I have one of the plain canvas tourist-y kinds with the snap sides, and my sim will be delighted to have a much more authentic one. Thanks very much!

Wow, this is fantastic. The berets in the game were just not enough. Also, I love the hat with the girl's braids. Very sweet. Thank you.

The hat is an accessory, there's no braids attached. It can be worn with the braids, at least for the teen, and the low bun, and short hair. You need to try the hat with various hairstyles, I made sure at least a few fit it... I didn't want to make the hat way oversized.

Great work ! Thanks for sharing this hat. It looks very nice and realistic.

Thanks Tiggerypum! Allthough a Damn Yank myself, my dads family came from Australia. While I was in the navy I happened to buy myself a slouch hat and loved it and was quite upset at loosing it. Now I have one for my simmies!
