Yes, I own a HJ fedora-it is very nice. However, they do not come shipped with petersham ribbon any longer, but a polyester grosgrain. I am currently tracking down some petersham, but found a sawtooth grosgrain (very similar to petersham) at Hyman Hendler in NYC. Also of note is the fact that the lining is not stiched in but glued-it is not a custom-made hat, however, so it is not surprising. Despite this, a hatter I know in Virginia has seen my hat and finds it to be one of the finest quality hats she has ever seen. Hope this helps!
