Greg, what you say may be true. After all, look at Fedora's 1912
outfit: very Indy-looking. It fooled all of us first-time viewers
into thinking that he was Indiana Jones (until he turned around).
The outfit made a big impression on the young Indiana Jones, who
tried to duplicate it as closely as possible later on in his life.
What he succeeded in copying is what we all know as Indiana Jones'
outfit. Now, considering that this new adventure will take place
sometime in the 1940's, the outfit might change a bit. But I doubt
seriously that Lucas and Spielberg would drastically change the
look of Indiana Jones- the world-famous look of adventure. True,
the shirt and pants may change a little, but the whip, jacket,
boots, and satchel would remain the same- as well as the ever-
popular fedora- whose style remained at the height of fashion
even into the 1950's. Fear not Indy fans, have a little backbone,
