My "Poet" actually didn't look a whole lot like the movie fedoras in the crown until I had the petersham ribbon put on to replace the polyester satin one put on at HJ, and the crown steamed and re-creased. And actually, the color of my hat is damn near identical to the movie hat. Remember also, the hats in the movies were getting mighty dirty (which will inevitably cause the felt to look like a lighter shade of brown). I'd love to see the Trilby, though-I plan on buying another hat (to have one to keep nice and the other to not worry about). Has Mr. Swales been able to find any more of the Petersham ribbon to put on the hats? I still have some if your hats don't have it.
