Depends on what you are looking for. folks her seem to think you cna get a good hat for 100 bux but its truly ot possible. A good hat will cost around $450.00 - $2500.00 ,, That is in a custom hand made hat. Our baseline hats are 450.00 or 225.00 for first time buyers we give 50% off.

Akubra's are not a real fedora, but instead more of an out back hat that is full of stiffner.

A fedora will have .4- .7 degrees of stiffner and its all that is needed to shape the hat as it is a GOOD fedora. An Akubra has 4.7 -5 degrees of stiffner and does not qualify as a fedora accordingly.

Not to say its not a good enough hat for the money but it is not a fedora it just has a semi fedora shape to it.

The akubra is a rabbit fur hat and your better fedora's are fur blends or belly beaver. We offer hats up to 12,000.00 . I would not consider 100 dollars for a good hat a lot of money. That is 3 tanks of gasoline . A hat is an investment that should last at least a life time and if its sterling beaver it will last generations or around 200 years.

VP is correct . Fedora, is offering a pure beaver hat for around 250.00 in the IJ style and I understand all are delighted with his offerings.

I'm sending it back for proper sizing. I'll miss it sooo.

Pinch? Me? I like mine a lil more Last Crusade, obviously. Though most prefer that tight, all-the-way-down Raiders one with the turn. I can't wear a turn. I like symmetry.

Thanks, VP... wow- I've never seen a welcome like the Raven welcome before...
I like quite a tight front pinch with a turn as well. The guys over at COW gave some good advice on it. My Adventurebilt arrived in the mail last Monday- I'm not going to get it for three weeks as I'm away. Torture!

Steve Delk (aka Fedora) has started carrying a pure rabbit fedora that is in the price range of an Akubra, and he is the master at creating screen accurate lids, right down to the specific scene - I got a 100% Beaver shaped per the "Well of Souls" scene...

Lookin' good, Panama Tom!

I think I'm eventually going to get another Adventurebilt; perhaps in another colour this time, or a different blend of felt. I'd hate to wear the one I have out in a few years and not have a back-up in case Steve retires or something.

What do you mean by "original" one? It's not the same hat and it's not the same felt. It's just made by the same company and it looks like the Indy one. I know a couple of folks who have ordered from Indyfedora.com and a copule that have ordered from Todd's Costumes. http://www.toddscostumes.com/indy/he...son_fedora.htm
Todd sells the same HJ as Indyfedora.com.
