Yes, I see your point. My workflow is with a blinking eye of course. But it actually works and shows, that treating your hat like a baby, sometime won't give it the..... flair.
I read a story, I think it was here in the forum, of someone who reblocked his hat on a jar (glass) which has his hat...
If anyone is interested: I own a Federation IV in:
So, you see, I am a huge fan of these hats. Some of them are 10-12 years old now and needed a Reblock. They were reblocked and modified by Advintage Fedora in Germany.
I wanted to find a way to get rid of the little taper of the hat. So I developed a complex workflow for the Fed IV.
Slapping on the hat. Somehow, if you crease it after that, the taper is even more less. The hat fits better (stiffer is gone). And it looks even better.
I am not sure about the ribbon-color. Campdraft Silverbelly has its own color, too. But it could be a little bit more easier for akubra, to take the ribbon of the normal grey federationIV and place it on a silverbelly felt.
Anyway, how could I handle this job here? I see the idea, and I think...
OH, what a good idea. I would definitely join with 2 hats.
But who organizes it? Maybe a user, who is better know as me by the people in this forum?
And english is not my native language.... I can't find the right words so easy.
I personally love the color 'silverbelly' from akubra. For example, this color comes with the campdraft.
I love the Federation IV, too.
Wouldn't it be nice to have this model with the color silverbelly?
So, I made a little grafic of a photoshopped Fed IV in Silverbelly - more...
