: : : : I have heard from some people that Stetson made the hats for the Indy films. I have also heard from others that Herbert Johnson Hatters made the hat. So, I just have one question, WHO REALLY MADE THE HAT?!?!?!?!? Any info would be greatly appreciated
: : : : Matt Walker
: : : Officially, Herbert Johnson made the actual hat worn by Harrison Ford. Stetson did indeed make hats for the stuntmen and the extras. I own one from Temple of Doom myself, and I recently read of one owned by an individual obtained from a stuntman from the same movie, so the answer is, yes, both are correct. Regards. Michaelson
: : Are the Herbert Johnson mhats still available and are they still made
: : the same exact way as they were for the movies?
: : Matt Walker
The hat from Herbert Johnson (the "Poet" it is called, but they will know which one you mean when you say
"the Indy Hat" is exact with one exception-the ribbon they use on it is a lighter brown polyester satin
ribbon-not the original Dark brown Petersham ribbon used in the films.
