I decided to change the crease and the ribbon treatment on this Stetson 7X. It originally came with a cattleman's crease and a thin western ribbon. I wanted to change the look of the hat, by changing the ribbon and the crease. I couldn't have done it without the help of Deanglen and MajorMoore.
First the original with the thin ribbon.

Finally the ribbon from MajorMoore which I decided to keep on the hat.

Razzman -- I think that the color and width of that ribbon are a perfect complement to the 7X. Way to go!!! :eusa_clap :eusa_clap :eusa_clap

To my amateur eye, the thin black ribbon looks very formal. This would be a really good look with a black suit.

But I think you hit it out of the park with the final ribbon. Color and width are really striking.


Well done sir. :eusa_clap

I LOVE the wide ribbon. I hope RBH and the other Brothers of the Thin Ribbon don't get angry with me, but seeing this makes me want to replace the thin ribbon on the Wildcatter (http://thefedoralounge.com/showthread.php?t=14232&highlight=wildcatter) he sold me with a thicker one like you have on yours.

Well done, I wish my 8X looked that good! Really liked the thin ribbon/OR bow, but the wider one definitely suits it.

Bravo! :eusa_clap

Thanks for all the kind words, I'm very pleased with the way the hat turned out. The felt is fantastic, very soft and pliable. It will hold any shape. I must again thank Deanglenn for his thin ribbon. I also want to thank majormoore of Buckaroo Hatters for the final product, it was his ribbon and his effort that made it work.
