Well, while I'm waiting for the hat stock to arrive so Mr. Swales can send me my HJ I figured I take a crack at finding a close approximation of the Raiders style ribbon for my hat (which he's going to pinch like the Raiders hat) With a little luck I'll find a workable ribbbon that I can send him to put on the hat for me.
I've got some places sending me some Petersham ribbon samples at the 39mm width but I'm curious about something :
On Luger's page he mentioned that the Raiders hatband was not only darker but a little bit wider. I think he's right in that respect but I'm not sure how much wider. I can't imagine it's much wider but does anyone have any ideas on how wide I should try?
Anyone have a Herbert Johnson hat with the current LC style ribbon who thinks that maybe it's a little narrow for the raider's look?
Or is the current LC style ribbon larger than 39mm?
