Sometimes I think that I'm the only one on these boards who don't own a fedora.
*sigh*

I have bought 3 DP's over the past few years or so. No, they don't look exactly like Indy's, but they're cheap and decent quality.

I have a few DP's that didn't cost very much, but I like the look and feel of them.

The one from the lottery pack sucked.

I have a leather one that I bought from the Indy shop in Disneyland in 2005. It is a little too small now. Has my head gotten bigger?

I have two Scala wool felt oubacks, one black, one olive. Stellar hat, wears well, water proof, warm but not too hot in warmer climes. I never go into the mountains without it.



Got my first fedora when I was about nine or ten - a brown Tote. Tote used to make nice hats, but, like North Face, they've gone the way of fashion and started making their products to suit trends.

I got a DP that I gave to my oldest son. My fedora is a Akubra Adventurer that my aunt got me last summer. I like it. It's not as bad as people make it out to be. I plan on getting another akubra, the fed in grey soon.

I started with a "Dorphman Pacific Crushable Fur Felt" and jumped for the "Herbert Johnson" A bit to big but I think I might grow into it.

Hybrid

My fedora is a hybrid!
I got a "Herbert Johnson" finalized by http://www.adventurebiltdeluxe.com/ Marc.
HJ, because it's the original from the first 3 movies -and the adventurebilt finalization because they made the hats for Indy IV.
So for me it's the ultimate Indiana Jones-Fedora.
(.. and the hat fits like a glove! )

I only voted hats I currently own; Adventurebilt and "other" (Being Penman and JPD).

I've gone through Akubras, PBs, DPs, and HJs as well. But they're all gone now.

Just ordered a Penman Raiders and very much looking forward to donning it. I asked that it only be as SA as possible.

He makes a damn nice hat, but I don't have an actual Indy hat from him yet. So, quality-wise, you're set, Mickiana. I hope to say, soon, that his bashing skills are a match.

Fedora

Last one I bought was at a county fair hat tent. It is the Stetson that was released after TOD.

We should have a poll that differentiates the hats that are in the "Other" section, since it has gained the most votes. Akubra and Penman seem to be two biggies that would be enumerated. It would be interesting to see their precise numbers, as precise as these polls get.

I have a water proof, crush-able, Dorfman Pacific. I got it basically brand new on eBay for $20. It looked pretty bad. The brim was flat, and the indents were on the side and not more toward the front. However It looks good now that I've reshaped it. The quality is nice, it fits me well doesn't fall of my head or wobble around.
The two things I don't like are:
1. the edges of the brim are folded in and sewed shut
2. When I wear it the two indents on the front of the hat don't stay indented

Maybe the latter is the fact that it isn't tall enough.

Still its a nice hat for $20

There's no way to change my vote, right?

I voted, "others"... but now I own a Christy's and I really love it! I wear it everytime I go out (I sometimes wear it at home too... hahaha!).



HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL!!!
