: I posted this earlier, but everyone focused on the first part of the message, so here goes take 2:
: It has become commonly reasoned that Herbert Johnson made the fedora hats used in at least some of the Indy movies. Is there anyone out there who has OFFICIAL proof from say Lucasfilm or the head costumer for the films proclaiming HJ made all the hats? This doesn't seem to me to be very likely. All the hats worn by Harrison Ford have different blocking(or bashing if you prefer) styles in each movie. If HJ really did make all the hats, did they pick somebody different to style the hats in each movie or what? Does anyone have OFFICIALLY VERAFIABLE information on this subject?
: Finally a serious question Regards,
: I don't know if an auction is officially verifiable, but it is as close to authenticity as one can be without having taken the hat from the costume trailer or Ford's head. Butterfield and Butterfield ran an auction and listed the specifics of each item. Included were fedora and jacket from Raiders and a shoulder bag from Temple. The Fedora is listed as having a label inside of Herbert Johnson and address on Old Bond St. I think you may find this link/image on the Indiana Jones Archeological Dig website. belloq
