I would say get a Keppler...the wait is worth it. The Akruba will get to you quicker, but I find the crown is easy to shape but the brim is much more difficult to shape. The Keppler comes shaped and Lee Keppler is a master at shaping an Indy fedora. I'd also recommend a Peters Bros. fedora for later down the line, but that one is a custom jobber at $185, which means you've gotta wait a bit longer.
