: : : I've worn the fedora LONG before I ever purchased my Wested jacket, or for that fact my first A2 wannabe flight jacket. As a matter of fact, the only "fedora" you could find in '81 was whatever was available in second hand stores on back streets in small towns. Unwanted overstock from a bygone era still sitting on dusty shelves of old inventory. If I'd known then what I know now, I'd have purchased everything I could have laid my hands on then. They were practically giving away original Dobbs fedoras at that time. I've worn a fedora everywhere from the back roads of Kentucky/Tennessee to the main streets of Miami, Houston, San Antonio, etc. in all weather and situations. Since the weather negates the wearing of a leather jacket much of the time, especially in hot weather, the fedora goes anywhere in any weather. I guest your question to this crowd should be, who HASN'T worn the hat, and then where. The fedora sort of goes with the territory. Regards. Michaelson
: : I never bought a brown fedora, but while in Australia bought a nice brown stockman's hat. That,
: : along wiht my leather jacket and whip, make a good outfit, IMHO. If you wish to see the effect,
: : there is a photo (a bit dark) of me wearing it in Tikal, Guatemala.

I only wear my hat when travelling.
I wore my fedora in Egypt last year and the year before that in Turkey.
In Turkey a street vendor recognized the hat and yelled "Indiana Jones" after me and tried
to sell me a pair of pants which he thought looked like Indyīs, they didnīt but I was so
flattered by him calling me Indy and dr. Jones that I bought a pair anyway.
So donīt be afraid to wear the hat in public, one thing is certain you will never be lost in crowd.
