Not as far as I can tell. Btw, nice jacket kid. I'm rather envious. I always wanted one of those since I first visited Disney/ MGM studious as a kid.
While I understand that the styling isn't exactly screen accurate,I don't get why everybody seems to hate on the fedoras sold at Disney parks. I bought one about four years ago. I've worn it from Florida to California and back again and I can attest for for a $30 to $40 hat it's fairly durable. It's been on my head while exploring ancient indian ruins from the deserts of New Mexico to the Florida Everglades & Ten thousand islands. I even wear it in the river when I go fossil hunting. It's been stepped on, sat on, rained on, and dunked in the river and it still looks good. The lack of courtesy around here really is a shame though. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy a good debate as much as anybody but it seems as though some people are just hanging around waiting for somebody to post just so they can piss all over it.
I bought my hat out at Disneyland too, and it's not even a fedora. It's a leather hat with a braid instead of a ribbon, and as much as I'd like to own an honest-to-goodness Fedora someday, I bought that hat because I wanted something a little different. The same goes for my jacket as well; not even close to screen accurate, but it's nice enough and comfortable. I just couldn't afford to go all out and get a Wested or anything, but that doesn't bother me.

I guess I'm just trying to say that I agree with Attila (a few pages back), if you want screen accurate and that's your thing: go for it. Otherwise, as long as you're happy with it, what does it really matter?

As for courtesy, I think it can happen. I'd say there are more courtesy conscience folks on this forum than not, and certainly more than there are on some other forums.
