The Holy Grail of Indy shirts are the MBA Costumes Indy shirts made by none other than Noel Howard (whom passed several years ago) whom made the original shirts for all three movies but I've even seen these as being incorrect coloring as being to dark... I think beauty is in the eye of the beholder to a degree as lighting in the movies vary and make the shirts look different. You also have Azuma (you'd have to check him out over at Club Obi Wan) he makes batches but not always available, Todd's Costumes in California ( their shirts vary from batch to batch with the latest being toted by a lot of die hard enthusiasts but I found mine very heavy almost a flannel shirt feel), and AdventureBilt ( Steve and Mark whom made the fedoras for the last movie) from what I understand they make a great shirt but are expensive and not always available and I've not seen one first hand ( I will probably purchase one one of these days). As far as trousers I have a pair of Wested's heavy, incorrect, and wrong buttons and I have a Todd's (which is out of production at the moment) which all die hard attire wearers by me say are " THE " best Raiders trousers .. so far they're not bad but had to be altered length wise but I knew that before ordering. You can find Todd's trousers on Ebay but make sure you order your actual waist size, my waist size here in the US is 32 but I take a tape measurer and measure out 35" exactly so I ordered a 35 waist and they fit quite well. Now I've heard mixed reviews on Magnoli Clothiers out of New Zealand, the trousers look really nice (as they should they are very expensive plus shipping out of NZ is not cheap either) but I've heard they are more of a dress/formal type fabric and maybe too dressy and delicate. Hope this helps please let me know if there's anything else I can help with.
Thanks for the tips I intend to pick up a pair of trousers from Todds, quite expensive to have them shipped to the UK though. Must get round to having my Wested shirt altered one of these days...

My new Webley MK VI

Stumbled upon this little gem quite by accident in what I suppose would be considered a junk-shop in Liverpool called "Aladin`s Cave". Sells second hand tools, bikes, random machine parts, and a selection of militaria and weapons. Wandered in whilst on my way to visit my brother and there, in the window, amongst old binoculars, fishing equipment and used lawn mower parts, was this; the Webley MK VI. SO much better than the shoddy MK IV replica from Denix which I had been using as a holster-filler with my Indy gear. This is a thing of beauty. Check it out...

ComicCon

Went to MCM ComicCon at the weekend with Wife. Interestingly, of all the displays, props and merchandise that was there, absolutely nothing related to Indiana Jones. Indeed, there were hundreds of people there in costume, but I only bumped into one other Indy. He was, like me, a man in his late forties, we had a brief chat about eachother`s gear, our love of Indy and how it was a bit sad that Indy is clearly slipped from the public`s mind, (there were about 20 Deadpools and even more Captain Americas!).
I wonder if things would have been a bit differnt if the event had been after this week`s Indy 5 announcement...
Still, it was worth a visit, and we went to a costume party afterwards which was nice. Me in full Raiders gear( wish I`d got some Fullers Earth, hadn`t realised just how new my stuff looks!) and Wife in her Star Fleet uniform

You must let us know how ComicCon goes in June, I'd be very interested to see if there's a stronger Indy presence by then with regards to the Indy 5 announcement. Be great to see some pics if your Streets of Cairo gear too

New Hat

Decided recently that I wanted a new fedora with the Raiders turn but wanted to shape it myself, so to that end I bought an open crowned Junior from Advintage, ( as Ive said before, great quality for less than 50,) and by following John Penman`s excellent tutorial on youtube this is the result. I`m quite happy with the pinch and bash, wish I`d given it a more obvious turn though.



The direct sunlight is giving it a greenish look. Its the hat I wore for comic con and its actually a deep brown colour as can be seen in the pic above with Wife.

Bought a Christys Adventurer. Learned an important lesson. When ordering from Christys go one size up. Gorgeous fedora. Too small though. I'll post a few pics anyway.

Christy`s Adventurer

Really disappointed that this doesnt fit. I`d heard mixed opinion of the Christy`s Adventurer, and was pleasantly surprised by the overall quality of it. Christy`s sizing is rubbish though.

I have a Christys Adventurer and Advintage recommended to order a size up. Funny thing is it is slightly big but fit fine after a couple hat strips behind the band. I have noticed size variations in most production hats to include the Henry, Harrison, Adventurer, and Akubra.
