I was enjoying the beautiful,Easter weekend weather on the Washington Mall when I remembered one of the forum postings cited Indy's hat and jacket was on display in one of the museums. I found them in the Ripley Center (International Gallery) next to the Smithsonian Castle. The jacket looked great and if you haven't ordered one from Wested, just seeing the display would be enough to go find a phone and call them up.
The hat didn't look so hot. It had the center dent and pinched front but some bozo had pinched the back of the hat too. Tsk, tsk.
I think it says a lot, though, that Indy's gear was in the same case with a Star Trek prop. IJones, like Star Trek, has become a true icon in American pop culture and will remain in our collective consciousness for quite some time.
