Hugh Jackman’s Hand Signed Custom Akubra Hat from “Australia” (2008).
Presenting Hugh Jackman’s Hand Signed Custom Akubra Hat. Worn by Jackman in the role of “Drover” in the Baz Luhrmann epic “Australia” (2008).
Hugh Jackman starred alongside Nicole Kidman in the 2008 romantic drama. The film received an Academy Award nomination for best costume design (Catherine Martin) ultimately losing out to “The Duchess” (Michael O’Connor). Catherine Martin went on to win two Oscars for “The Great Gatsby” (2013). Martin had previously picked up two Academy Awards (Art Direction & Costume Design) for “Moulin Rouge” (2001).
This was a one-off design by famous Aussie hat maker “Akubra”. Exclusively made for Jackman with no other styles in the Akubra range exactly matching this particular style of hat!
It was hand signed by Hugh Jackman (see pic) before being offered for sale in a charity auction. Personally, I’m not a big fan of having my props and wardrobe pieces signed, but I’m happy to have this iconic piece in my collection.
Some light wear from production use is evident, likewise, some minor traces of make-up residue. Overall, it remains in very good production used condition.
In addition, the hat is production tagged on inside band “HJ DROVER“.
