Has anyone removed and/or reversed the ribbon tails on a helmet?
I'm going hunting this winter and this particular hunt is as formal and traditional as they come. I love that about this hunt and therefore want to play by the rules, be respectful and have no fashion faux pas! By tradition, only hunt staff can wear a helmet with the ribbon tails pointed down....and I have a CO Hampton (which has the ribbon tails pointed down and dangling). I don't want to get a entirely new helmet for hunting, so I want to turn the tails upright. Are these just glued on?? Can I take a hair dryer or something to heat up the glue and just re-apply them the other direction?
I'm scared to experiment with out knowing whether or not these are glued or sewn on! Thanks!
