Thanks to the bad influence of this forum, I ordered a Gannon hat months ago. It came yesterday:

It's a dress weight Whiskey with a rust ribbon and binding.
I got it to put a crease in it similar to the Medford Man from Double Indemnity. Wish me luck.

That is a great crease! I've tried similar with my camp drafts with no luck. Jimmy Stewart wears a very nice hat in the movie "Bell, Book and Candle" where there's a center dent with a slight rise in the middle seemingly to accommodate the top of one's head.

There’s 2 things I wanted to try to match the hat better than my Campdraft:
1. No taper
2. Thinner dress weight felt
Doing those deep creases on something with too much of a taper or on too thick of felt just doesn’t work in my experience.

Looks like you have plenty of crown to work with, and I can just imagine the fun you'll have with it!

So, I was messing around with shaping my new hat and settled on this crease. Large center dent but instead of moving the diamond shape towards the back like I normally would I opted for a more symmetrical one. So the profile is even and from the front it's a little more of a square look with very shallow front dents. I love this hat. IMG_8984.jpg IMG_8985.jpg IMG_8988.jpg

I realized I haven't posted my new Gannon to this thread yet. It is a highwayman in Granite with charcoal ribbon, 5 1/2" open crown and 2 3/4 brim. I had it sent open crown and have been trying to decide what bash I like best I have tried a center dent with a pinch and now a diamond.

Congrats on the NHD (new hat day)!

Granite is a fav felt. I like that it can pair with warm and cool clothing. Easy wearing. I love the style.

I look forward to seeing more of your special hat. Cheers, Eric -

Great hat. I love how granite can shift from gray to brown: wonderful hat all around.
