I have tried to find an appropriate hat with a gosgrain ribbon edged brim (from what I've read) but can't find one. The pencil curl I created by steaming the edge and bending it around a AAA battery of all things and also by hand forming. Very easy to do if you have the proper steamer and a good felt/beaver hat. I had an old Norleco steamer just like this one pictured I found around the house. If you're trying to modify a hat  something like this steamer is highly recommended. I haven't used the steamer on my Akubra hat I posted earlier above so I'm sure the edge will look much better.  I still have some steaming tweaks to do, the edge, raising up the center of the hat a bit in the middle on top and making the top rim a bit more deeper and crisper/sharper. The hat band came with this Stetson, I didn't cut is yet, just folded it downwards to make it thinner. I might go for a more exacting one as replica are being offered. I wish this was a bit darker/more brown but I have the other Stetson to work on yet but this one fits me better.  I have the gun but I don't have the guts to shoot some bullet holes in it yet!


Getting there, found an old small clothes steamer and slowly but surely.......

You are so correct in that the hat must fit/match the person whos wearing it, so that is why I am trying several to balance "the look" with what looks good on me. Eastwood did wear different hats in the films, one with a higher crown, one lower. I'm looking for the GBU look. My stetson can be rolled down a bit from the top to make the top of the crown deeper and the height shorter.

The darker stetson flattened  brim is 3.5" north/south/east/west
the lighter is 3" north/east/west and 3.25 south
my akubra is 3" all around

thanks for the input and tips/links

Probably only matters to us here who detail this character but the hat is very important. Anyone else will think any hat looks correct  but not me as I have been looking for a better hat. The straightline one doesn't look correct to me.

Here is the Akubra I have..... says made "MADE ESPRESSLY FOR OUTBACK TRADING CO PA"
I really need a hatters pencil roll tool for the rim. I will try a clothes steamer, any suggestions to get the edge up correct?

I think the first Stetson above has the look if I can get the rim flat and the edge correct

Yes, both mine. I also have an Akubra hat that is close.

Two vintage Stetsons...with a little modifications.......???
