    Had a Northern California Western hat customer of mine who needed an Indiana Jones Hat for a costume event he was attending email me with his request. He spent a fair amount of time acquiring all the various parts of the costume, from jacket all the way down to the boots. I was honored that he trusted me to create the "correct" hat for him (I think they used four different makers/versions for the movies!)

    I used various shots from all the movies and we came up with the finished version you see here. I don't create a lot of fedoras, but this one was a really fun project to work on. He reported back that he won the contest, hands down.

    Great looking hat there Mike. It looks like your customer did some good research on his Indy gear, right down to the leather strap on the gas mask bag.
