the downtowner----- is stiff like the dorfman hat but has the brim that looks like the style from the film and the hat is very streets of cairo looking.
in this pic the downtowner is set next to my dorfman --so you can see the difference of the height of the hat
in these two next pics , they showcase the uptowner(on the left) and the downtowner (on the right) as you can see the the uptowner is shorter in the crown of the downtowner , but mind you they have corrected the size of the crown of the downtowner to match with the uptowner now.
the downtowner being much stiffer holds it shape when placed on a hard surface.
so i hope this helps in your decision on buying a downtowner
i wear mine just bout every other day ( i switch off between my up and downtowners)they are both great hats and great affordable prices !
Ok, another question, just for clarification: you stated your downtowner was an older version. So in terms of what I would theoretically get, is the picture you have more accurate (with the height being the exception), or is the picture on todd's website? The reason being is that the pic of yours has slightly greenish tones to it; I'm trying to see if the color on Todd's is closer, or your camera's depiction is closer.
The picture there has a lighter brown to it.
