    hey FL crew
    happy new year y'all !
    it's been quite a while
    okay, i'm trying to grab me a second hand Indy Jones, preferentially from a lounge member who'd be located in Europe
    why second hand ? two reasons :
    -i don't want any other rabbit/hare/beaver slain to make a new hat (yup, i'm turning vegetarian. Can't stand the killing of animals anymore. Don't want to hurt anyone's feelings, but I really can't stand it anymore. Which comes as a serious problem when you love fedora hats and leather jackets. Hence the second hand).
    - i'm on a budget
    so here we go
    take care, the whole lot of yous !

    You may wish to consider one of the wool ones (no killed animals). There are actually some real nice wool examples (though they tend to be quite stiff). I have one that I wore a lot and still do occasionally. It is quite thin and nice...hard to tell it is wool.....I cannot remember the brand but it was a licensed product and had the "Indiana Jones" pin in the ribbon. Quite a nice hat that got a lot of compliments.......though now I tend to wear a softer fur felt.......
    EDIT: Be careful though....many of the wool ones are cheap garbage.....the one I bought cost almost as much as a fur felt and was worth it....

    hey there. thanks, that might be an option i could consider, although the wool felt i ve seen so far were quite cheap and nowhere near as nice as a furfelt. plus i'm not really comfortable with shearing (yup, i'm turning pretty radical). thanks anyway !

    I have a Bill Kelso one that I'm considering selling but it's a UK size small.

    I'll send you some photos and measurements later.

    hey again King B
    sorry, there must be a misunderstanding : i'm primarily looking for a hat

    but then again, a nice bill kelso could be nice also...
    and oh, while we're at it : i could use a satchel too (should you have one spare Jones bag)

    thanks a lot !

    Hey, Indyhan, I'm curious what hat you ended up with. I'm in the same boat for the same reasons... no killing so only used leather, etc. I'm looking for a hat as well. Thanks!
