Default need help texturing a top hat

Does anyone know of a good shader/texture I can use on my top hat so it looks similar to the one next to it.


Any suggestions will help, I'm a complete noob when it comes to texturing.

If you have photoshop or other drawing program(more advanced then MS paint):
I'd use this texture - http://www.cgtextures.com/texview.ph...13503da74dac2d

Desaturated with some red and yellow to your liking, and add a bump map and a specular map based on it too(play around with brightness and contrast). Get higher, solid specular value and no bumps for the tips and ribbon.
That should mimic it pretty well...

Hope it helps,
Benny
