: Two questions-
: Why does the Herbert Johnson repro hat ribbon look so much darker than the original- is it the lighting?
I have collected photos from two different HJ repro, but both of
the HJ repros were inaccurate in color.
It may be the lighting, but since I have never seen the real thing
with my own eyes, I can't tell.
The version I have on my site right now seems to be too light and
reddish, hat band looks darker because the felt is so light.
The other version has greyish brown color felt with also dark hatband.
but owners of either hat claims that they look like the real thing,
so I guess it is just the photo that came out bad.
: As far as the Henry Jones Sr. hat- do you know if Stetson makes a similar hat with more of a thatch pattern instead of herringbone?
that is the closed match I could find.
You can follow the $35 link and search it for yourself.
Westmall Horsemall and Miller hat seems to be only ones carring that
sort of hat.
