View Full Version : What's the MOST ICONIC look for the LC hat to YOU?

The reason I ask is because I just received in the mail one of the holy grails of Indy hats - an authentic, late 80s/early 90s Herbert Johnson fedora. And my goal is to have it reblocked, touched up to be an LC fedora which "I" have always felt exemplified the Indiana Jones fedora. The second I saw the LC hat, I was enamered and it always was "the" Indy hat for me. So this not only holds value for me as the correct period hat for LC in general, but whenever I'll look at it, it'll be "the" Indy hat for me. So I want to get the hat looking right.

As all of you are aware, in every Indy film, there's numerous variations on the bash of the hat as the hat progresses throughout each film. I, personally, love the loose pinch in LC (note Ford and Connery picture of Ford with arm around Connery in father/son pose). However, I would be interested to hear what your opinion, preference, etc. is for what you consider "the" LC fedora.

If possible, please post the picture that you're thinking of when making your point on your choice so both I and others may better visualize it.

Let's talk LC! :)

You mean this one, right?


I like this shot of the hat too.

When I started, this is the hat I wanted. I wasn't a fan of the Raiders hat... at first. But for some reason, all my other hats became a mix of Raiders tight front pinch and LC brim.

That's the one! :) I just love the loose pinch of the LC fedora and subsequent CS fedora. I don't mind the look of the Raiders hat but I've never been fond of it enough to pursue wearing one as my go-to hat.

The hat on the left is my LC Steele and Jones fedora that was modeled after the Venice Pier scene

I think the LC hat looks best in the scene at the crossroads where Indy & Henry are having their discussion:


I just love the colour of the felt & the ribbon, and the look of the brim too, especially the front. In fact, I would almost prefer this one to the one showing in my avatar. :)
