Re: Auction for Darin McGavin's suit worn in the TV show (SOLD).

Reviving this old thread after watching the new Kino Blu-Rays for The Night Stalker and The Night Strangler

Does anyone have any leads on a good source for his hat? Baron's is beyond out of their minds for $500-$600.

A quick eBay search turned up this. Wrong color, but maybe you could use the name to search for better.

Check and see if Jvasilitos is still doing the hats

Other than that the hat is gonna be tough to find.

Nice to see the Blu-rays released on this and “Strangler” I can finally retire my DVDs.

Hopefully they will do the series as well

I wonder if that could be lightened some how.

You would still need to correct what he calls "blocking". You can see the mold in the background, where he has put the starting hat into the mold and probably steamed the hat until it was soft and could be shaped into the mold.

After posting this and saying you could dye the hat yellow, I went to Google images and brought up a picture of Kolchak.
And low and behold, his hat isn't YELLOW. And the ventilation holes are more the size of the hat I found, than the larger holes of the yellow hat.
The brim on the Amazon hat is also closer than the previous hat I found.
This hat (third in picture) is on Amazon.
You still need to fix the blocking on the top.
Here's the link.

At $30, you can afford to experiment.

***************
The more common hat ribbon is Black-Red-Black. Here's one on Etsy that looks good.
