: While in London, Mr. Swales told me that the felt now used in the making of the Poet is from a different source than those used for the films. I also remember, before ever buying my HJ, that someone said that the felt came from Brazil (I'm not sure if that was the originals or the new ones, though). Regardless of where the felt originated, HJ was the only makers of the true Indy fedora.
: Hope this helps,
As far as I know the current felt supplier is somewhere in Spain as
well as the source for the Petersham ribbon. The felt for the original
Indy hat used in the movies was bought from Christie's of London which
got them from Brazil.
And no, they don't offer a certificate of authencity as Wested does but
maybe if a lot of people request it and if they see there is a demand
for them maybe HJ will then ship with one.
