    I was wondering if anybody knows what fedora Stacy Keach wore in the Mike Hammer tv series?

    It's hard to tell. A lot of the hats on TV and in the movies are custom made. I remember that series though. Can't tell if it was custom made for the series or if it was an actual hat brand. It could easily be replicated by a hatter, and there's plenty here on the Lounge.

    It could be one of many makes, but it looks a lot like my Akubra Stylemaster.

    There was one episode where his hat caught fire so he needed a new hat, but he just couldn't get it to work. So he throws it on the ground and a car runs over it. Then it's ok and he wears it.

    Thanks guys. I agree it does look like an Akubra Stylemaster.
    I remember that episode with the new hat!
    I loved this show, and the books even more. It's a shame you can't find the 80's version of the show anywhere. I liked the version from the 90's too, but the one from the 80's was the best.

    I always thought it was a Stetson Downs, but now I notice the brim edge does look like a Stylemaster. Nice to know.
