Here's my Christy's...



I just photoshopped out the background and put in a more "adventure-ish" one. I don't have an Indy jacket... just this brown denim jacket which I find suits me just fine.

being an indy purist isnt so bad , my first hat was the dp, i liked the way the color looked and to me it had the most look to a temple of doom style , minus the teardrop bash, a good hat to start in tho now save up 100 bucks for the todds downtowner and then you'll be on your way to a nicer looking hat

I have a 1984 Stetson which is a branded Indiana Jones hat.

I'll try to take some good pix of it and upload it. I've never found one I like better. I wore it to my wedding in 1993. Badly scanned picture...

Unfortunately, my budget doesn't allow for an adventurbilt or dorfman pacific. I bought one of the Disney fedoras from the Adventure Outfitters in Disney's Hollywood Studios. It was right after seeing the Epic Stunt Spectacular. Then after that, I went back and bought the Shorty baseball cap, the Jock Baseball cap, the white Belloq hat and the Panama Jack hat

Dorfman Pacific makes the Disney/Licensed Indy hats. So you got one!

hi i have a downtowner and i have pics , but my downtowner was one of the first ones made by todd.so my height of the crown was a bit taller than what it is now. todd also told me that they have fixed the height of the downtowner to match that of their uptowner which i also have ( i will post pics of both hats) so if you decide on the downtowner you will be quite pleased with it i'm sure.
the downtowner----- is stiff like the dorfman hat but has the brim that looks like the style from the film and the hat is very streets of cairo looking.
in this pic the downtowner is set next to my dorfman --so you can see the difference of the height of the hat


in these two next pics , they showcase the uptowner(on the left) and the downtowner (on the right) as you can see the the uptowner is shorter in the crown of the downtowner , but mind you they have corrected the size of the crown of the downtowner to match with the uptowner now.
the downtowner being much stiffer holds it shape when placed on a hard surface.



so i hope this helps in your decision on buying a downtowner i wear mine just bout every other day ( i switch off between my up and downtowners)they are both great hats and great affordable prices !

Same here, been to 3 countries with me so far. Good and durable, I even threw some dirt on it when I first got it.

The Akubra is an excellent hat. Does anyone think that it may be a bit taller than Indy's, no matter how you shape it, or is it just me?

Ok, another question, just for clarification: you stated your downtowner was an older version. So in terms of what I would theoretically get, is the picture you have more accurate (with the height being the exception), or is the picture on todd's website? The reason being is that the pic of yours has slightly greenish tones to it; I'm trying to see if the color on Todd's is closer, or your camera's depiction is closer.

The picture there has a lighter brown to it.

Own a Crystal Skull Fedora

http://www.charitybuzz.com/catalog_items/11362

Includes: a signature "Indiana Jones hat" from the personal collection of George Lucas. This is also signed by Harrison Ford. In condition as donated, may not be returned or exchanged.

He's a Professor of Archeology, expert on the occult and obtainer of rare antiquities. He's fought Nazis, outrun boulders and glimpsed beyond the veil of the known world. He's gone in search of the Ark of the Covenant, the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull and even the Holy Grail - but Indy's greatest treasure belongs to the man in the hat himself!

Now, you have the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own one of the famous fedoras actually worn by Harrison Ford during production of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Of the custom fedoras used during the filming of Indy's fourth big screen adventure, this is one of the "slightly aged" versions of the iconic headgear, showcased when the rugged and rumpled adventurer has gotten himself into a tight spot.

Indiana Jones' hat is arguably one of the most famous hats in cinema history. This hat is particularly special as it is from the personal collection of the director--the one and only George Lucas!

Add this very special piece of movie memorabilia to your collection!

Terms: Includes: a signature "Indiana Jones hat" from the personal collection of George Lucas. This is also signed by Harrison Ford. In condition as donated, may not be returned or exchanged.
Donated by: George Lucas, Harrison Ford

If I had the money to splash around I just might.... but I don't. Anyway, my Penman Raiders is arriving soon. That will do for now.

Mine's a Dorfman Pacific, made of 100% wool. Pretty rigid. Picks up dust and hair very easily. Has a neat plastic inside, with the Indy logo.

I've been offered a large Dorfman for 35. Which is a shame because I am a medium. But hey, it'll replace my current almost 3 year old Disney Dorfman
