Hi anyone out there please answer.

Does anyone the name of the color of the ribbon that was put on the Swaine Adeney Brigg Poet Fedora, or any website that sells a ribbon with the color that looks like the poet Brigg Fedora?

Thanks in advance!

I don't know the name of the ribbon colour, but I think I may still have some that I bought from their factory when I was buying the bodies. Let me have a look and see if I have any left.

I'm really sorry but I've checked and I don't have any left! You could try Hornet Hats in the UK.

Ok thanks but let me know that if you order more materials from Brigg :) . If you have the ribbon back in stock i would want around 28 meters, i can wait for at least a year or so & thanks for the info about Hornet Hats & are you sure i can order ribbons there?, but remember to let me know if you have ordered more materials ;)

Hi mate, I don't and won't, but you can just do a search on Etsy for vintage grosgrain and then scan to look for it in 38mm or 1.5". You can dye it easily enough too, but will just need to experiment with that.

Hi friend, yeah i tried dying a dark brown ribbon by soaking it in water with 3% hydrogen peroxide in a small paper cup and another piece of ribbon in the same liquid but mixed with ammonia, i know that the liquid only works on hair but im just testing how it would work on clothing, after a week there's barely any results, but anyways i decided to order 5 metres of the ribbon that is supposed to look similar to those pictures from top secret hats(formerly hornet hats). I showed them the pictures through email and they said that they have a ribbon with that color called dark chocolate, im waiting for it to be delivered at my home. Btw i tried etsy and no ribbon of that color showed but anyways thanks for the advice ;) , i really appreciated it.
