My first one was a DP wool crushable one from Todds. My most recent one is a Akubra Fed iv.

I am looking for another one in wool again, but a very, very good one.

I have a Peters Brothers custom I purchased in 2001.

Ten years later, I purchased a Todd's Downtowner.

I just need a grey one now. Maybe the Fed IV in moonstone.

Since this post in 2009, I recently bought a Steele and Jones LC fedora. It is great high quality hat, well worth the 200.00 I spent for it.

I have a Steve Delk Adventurbilt Raiders style which I received in 2008 and love it, absolutely the best fedora !! I bought a Peter Bros. in 2004 which was quite nice and looked good but was too small and then I ordered another in 2005 (which I beleive was made by the son) which was not even close to the previous.

I own a Adventurebilt in beaver from Steve that I've had for five years, and I have a Federation IV from Akubra. The Fed IV is my back up hat in case something happens to my AB.
Here's my AB:

You should post some pics with the hat on you !! When I travel I bring and wear my fedora, it's my travel hat. Let's get some pics of everyone in their hats Adveturebilt or any other. Not only is it great seeing everyone enjoying their fedoras it also helps others in selecting a hat for themselves.

My hat was purchased at a store called the Mens Hat Shop. It's a fur felt , I paid $133.00 for it. Its a hat that was made for the store so I am not sure by who but I think Stetson. It looks a lot like the one from Todds with the shorter crown.

Akubra FED IV Standard:





Fantastic Hat! Much better than that cheap Licensed DP one I had first.

I agree that the Fed IV is a great hat for the money, particularly if you're looking for something that will stand up to abuse. The only down side is that it's very stiff. The DP is a piece of junk along with any other wool felt hat. They're ok for kids.

I re-did my DP a day or so after I got it.





Darkened the ribbon, reshaped the bash, which is tough since it's punched into the wool at the factory

Looked better, but the crown is so short the hat just keep sliding off. Much happier with the Akubra!

That's a sharp-looking Akubra!

Thanks! The shape and quality of an Akubra is fantastic. The felt quality of a deluxe must be really nice, because this is just a standard. I've beaten it up a little more since I took those pics, and has it really taken on some nice character.

Absolute best hats you can own and most screen accurate if that's what you want are (if you can aford them) Adventurebilt (Steve Delk, providing his health) and Penman Hat Company (great guy, passionate about what he does). These are expensive hats but better than the original hat company that made them for the movies and they will work with you. I have a Adventurebilt made by Steve Delk and it is a piece of art, I've talked with John Penman (great guy by the way) and I've seen his work and my next fedora order goes to him. Best advise I can give, hope this helps.

I'd say Steele and Jones make great value hats that are also very accurate. They're fans which really helps....

I love the quality of an Akubra, but I do intend on investing in something that looks more accurate down the road.

I have to correct myself from my previous statement, Steve Delk at Adventurebilt hats not only makes great Raiders, TOD, and Crusade style fedoras he made the hats for Harrison Ford for Crystal Skull, so he made the hats for the movie. Djd1 I agree with you Steele and Jones makes a great Indy fedora as well. They also make jackets and other accessories, check their website out www.steele-jones.com.ar

I'm not sure whether steve is still in business given his health and financial issues reported elsewhere.
As for Steele and Jones, I'm wearing one of their very fine jackets as I write this. Excellent customer service and attention to detail in my experience

Steve is doing much better and is back to work making fedoras. If you're interested in having Steve Delk make your hat (he's excellent, obviously good enough to make the hats for Crystal Skull) I would recommend contacting Steve at the Adventurebilt website first and see what the real wait time is because I know he's backed up because of his health. Anybody needs any info pm me here and I'll help out as best I can.
