In Reply to: Herbert Johnson Fedora help posted by Sean on September 23, 1998 at 23:21:50:
: I need some help deciding wether or not to order a hat from Herbert Johnson hatters...my tired Indy hat is getting too old and quite frankly was a poor copy to begin with.
: Now what I need to know is, if everyone who has purchased the Indy model fairly satisfied that this hat is 1)authentic and 2)worth the price? Is it exactly like the hat seen in Raiders, or close enough? I'm very apprehensive about ordering one based on the pictures I've seen, and would appreciate some help/input.
: Thanks in advance,
If you are looking for the real thing (Indy's Hat) Then Herbert
JOhnson is the way to go. I recently Ordered one and I was impressed
with quality. Everything is the same as the orignal Fedora. The only
thing different is the fact that distressed hats were used for the film.
The only time that hat appears to be in new condition which looks
exactly like the one you will get from Herbert JOhnson is when Indy is
in Donavan's apartment In the Last Crusade. Compare them if you like
when you get the hat it is the same.
Is it worth it? Yes if you want the real thing!
Yes the hat from herbert johnson is the orignal so it is indeed authentic.
I have spoken proof of this ask for Mr. Richard Swales when you order
he will tell all about how he made the hats for the films.
I hope this helps!
