: : 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.
