Some folks order their custom/semi custom hats and they receive ill fitting ones. Not sure if it is the maker or the wrong measurements but I have scored about 4 Indy ones overs the last few years on the cheap.

Ended up changing the bash on the rabbit Penman into a teardrop one. Lowered the height a little. Also changed the tight pinch into a looser pinch. Have never been a big fan of the Raiders pinch.........

Looks good. I did something similar with my Christy`s Adventurer; the crown was just a touch too high I felt. The teardrop lowers it a bit.

This is my current collection;

Top left, Akubra Fed IV in carbon grey(a nice representation of the Raiders clipper fedora)
Top right, Advintage Junior. My favourite, and the one Ive had longest. Great colour.
Bottom, Christy`s Adventurer with a touch of Fullers.

My vintage Borsalino "Castoro". it's a late 40's beaver hat, with the all right dimensions of the Raiders hat. The felt on the crown is amazing, easy to hand crease so I store the hat open crown and put the crease on it each time I wear the hat. The ribbon is not the "Indy color" but I do not intend to modify the hat because I love it exactly as it was made.

And the finished article. Nice looking fedora, probably closest to the Raiders hat in terms of proportion. Very stiff felt, almost cardboard-like, even after the steam treatment. Much prefer my Advintage fedoras for an everyday hat, probably use this for fancy dress/cosplay etc...

The new ribbon and the bow I made turned out well .
Nice work.
I had a Coyle's Downtowner for 6 years and the felt color faded a lot. It was brown, now it's khaki.
