@HenryJunior--I posted a pic in the "New Acquisitions" thread (reposted the pic below), but you're right, it wasn't as hard as it seems! I was apprehensive about messing it up, but the hats can take a shape and reshape if needed. I will keep shaping it to get it to the "Raider" look that I want, but let me know what you think so far!


Also, I'll follow your advice about just letting it naturally conform to my head. Thanks!

Welcome to our forum. I think you can upload some photos at photobucket and then put the links here.

*smacks my hand to face*

A slight followup to my fedora post. I went to the St. Louis ComicCon last week, and donned my Akubra...


Taking it to a hattery today to have it resized...still feels a little loose after wearing it for over a week. 7 1/8 (57) is more my size than the 7 1/4 (58) that I got it at.

Sadly i only have this fedora. I bought it at Party City when I needed a quick cosplay for Indy, and I managed to take out the 'Indiana Jones' Pin on it, but still it feels like its only a very superficial Indiana hat.




I have posted a few pics of me wearing it.

As you can probably tell, my Indy outfit still needs a lot of work. But its what I wear to conventions when I w ant to dress up but nothing too cumbersome so i won't have to fight my way through a crowd.

Yes, I am patiently awaiting one of his myself. After seeing Mr. Fusion's SOC when he first got it, I had to give him a try. I am getting a TOD version(to go with my Todd's), instead of a Raiders but will probably get myself an SOC sometime in the future.

That Garrison fedora looks great! Soooo many choices of fedoras to choose from these days that now I want to get another fedora like a "streets of Cairo" version like the Garrison or Penman, or a TOD version, to go with my Akubra. Incidentally, I "retired" my Dorfman-Pacific to my son.

@TheFedora--as you can see, there's various hatters that make some great quality Indy-style fedoras out there. When you find one that you like, go for it!

Adventurebilt Deluxe

I ordered an Adventurebilt Deluxe a couple of months ago.
Stephan said up front that I could expect to wait up to a year to take delivery of the hat. Much to my amazement and delight he just said I can expect my hat to be ready in one month or so.

It's because my giant head is so big that the block they use for my hat is more readily available.

Now I have to come up with the money to pay the balance.

I think you'll be quite happy when it arrives, it's all about fitment. As long as the hat fits you correctly and you gave proper measurements I think you will be very happy !! You need to post pics once you get the fedora. Good luck, enjoy.

Currently an AB rabbit Raiders from Steve Delk, a grey Fed IV and a wonderful HJ replica from Steele and Jones.

Previously an AB Henry, a Schubert SoC, a Todd's Uptowner and a Magnoli HJ.

@Eric Solo--definitely envy you on your purchase. You mentioned you have to pay the balance...they didn't ask for the full amount up front?

@Djd1--that's some collection! If you still have them all, can you post up a pic of them together? Would love to see that!

Djd1, to back up jsarino, here here !! Let's see some pics, preferably on you. We'd all like to see your collection but also it informs other members so they can make a visually informed hat selection.

Sadly there's a clue in the 'previously' word in my statement. Apart from the AB, Fed IV and Steele and Jones the others have been sold on for a variety of reasons.

@jsarino Stephan asks for 50% up front and 50 % some months later.

Nice fedora !! Did you work the brim (turn) or did come like that ?? Steele and Jones usually gets the crown right with the right pinch but you usually have to shape the brim (work the turn). Nice !!

I've not consciously worked on it...
It's one of their HJ replicas rather than a standard one.

Just use the old 'this? I've had this for ages!' tactic. Women do it all the time with shoes and handbags...
