: Hi Everyone!
: I just recieved my hat back from HJ and they put the wrong ribbon on it again! It is the same width of the petersham but it is clearly not the right ribbon. First of all those of you that own a HJ hat with the petersham ribbon what is the material made out of? It looks to me to be almost leather in some of the photos I have seen. It appears to be rather smooth looking and shiny. The ribbon I recieved has lines that go up and down and is not the right color. Or is this the real thing? After receiving the wrong ribbon twice I'm a bit frustrated from what I have been told over the phone. However I'm very persistent so I guess I'll give them a call again.....
It's hard to tell without seeing it but the ribbon I have on my hat
also has this tiny vertical ribbing. It's pretty shiny as well so I
guess it's the same and yes, the color seems to be more black than a
very drak brown. The ribbon in the movies appears to be smooth but
after looking at several pictures and consulting some other hat
specialists I came to the conclusion that the ribbing was smoothened
by wear and distressment. Also the color may appear lighter but I must
agree with you though that the color is more black.
Anyway, you can call Herbert Johnson though if you still feel bad
about it, maybe they have or can get a better Petersham or a closer
