Well, today was Christmas, because not only did my custom Todd's Well of the Souls jacket show up, 2 minutes after that, my AWESOME Shubert Streets of Cairo Hat did as well.

I will write more and post more photos at a later date, but I have to say this for now, it looks, and FEELS like the one in the movie. I mean "feels" in that it behaves the same as the one you see on screen, bouncy, soft. How Kurt gets it in the exact screen accurate mode is beyond me. He is an amazing craftsman, that is for sure.

Thanks again Kurt!

A+++

He does fabulous work! It looks awesome. I'd hate to imagine how much work Kurt puts into getting these soooo close.

I want to get one of these hats bad! It was the one thing the GF (we live together) said not to buy was another Indy hat. Jackets ok, hats no dice. I want a Rabbit Raiders hat bad so I can get the proper Raiders look (too hard to achieve with Beaver hats like I have) and this is probably the most accurate Raiders hat available (in a way, since Kurt has closed shop). So I guess I'm SOL unless he will take an order, and I can figure out to sneak it in... ;)

That is a Beauty. What jacket is it sitting on top of?

Nevermind about the jacket....That's the one Todd made from the hides you sent him. Which is Amazing.

Tell her you just sent one of your old hats away to have it distressed! Then you just have to hide / sell one if the old ones....

I love the fact that the only reason I will be making more hats is if I give into temptation and buy a Surrogates from Riley. I'm in the same boat - I can't justify to my wife (who in this case is unfortunately real, djd! ;) ) that I would be buying yet another jacket even though we live in the sub-tropics. I'd have to sell a few more hats to cover the cost so that way I can run with a "But the hobby pays for itself!" rationalisation. :D

You have a real wife?? Do you know George lucas?? :)

Gunslinger
11-22-2010, 09:05 PM
Yes I do. And the way I can prove she's real is she has ZERO interest in posting on an INDIANA JONES GEAR INTERNET FORUM! And if she did, she wouldn't type exactly like me. I'm just still shaking my head over that whole Jessica Rabbit thing - I wonder who the poor woman who's had her Facebook page raided is? That's what it looks like, anyway.

But, sorry, I am now getting in the way of unbridled praise of... ME! Please carry on... :D

Well Kurt has sent me a few work in progress photos and it's looking mighty fine!

Hey faststreets! Any chance of seeing how your hat looks on your head? Would love to see some more photos! :)

djd,

No disrespect intended, but I do not look like Harrison Ford, nor will I ever.

My hats pretty much stay in cases to be admired. Once in a while, someone will say: "What a great hat, why not try it on?" ... so I do, then the smile vanishes form their face, and then they say: "Why not put it back in the case?"

Ok, in my Zoolander-like enthusiasm to pose, I'll volunteer my shots of Gerald's SoC from a little while ago.

And a very crappy artists rendition of what you may look like wearing your hat, Djd!

Always good to see :D

I did post some pictures of my in development Schubert SoC hat over on another forum but have just been informed that it's against the rules to mention a banned member or his products. Who knew? Land of the free and all that...

O/T I know, but that's interesting I've been made aware that since I, a banned member at the place you refer, have been mentioned in posts numerous times since the ban both by screen name and name by a certain individual and it remained.....

Gunslinger
11-25-2010, 08:56 PM
Yes, as have I. It doesn't bother me.

In any even, as I may have mentioned in our PM's, I think the shape of the Raiders will really suit your face.

djd
11-25-2010, 09:02 PM
It bothers me I have to say... I have pointed out that since you are not making hats anymore it is hardly advertising for you. All I wanted to do was show off my cool new hat!

Gunslinger
11-25-2010, 09:14 PM
Don't get me wrong, I'm sorry they're screwing you on that score. All in all they are definitely worthy of a set of "golden cock" trophies.

I'm jealous. And I have one........er..... two. I agree with Kurt. I think the Raiders shape suits you.

Faststreets, many congratulations to you on your recent purchase. ;D

All of your hats look awesome, and Gunslinger, I think that you win this months award for the most screen accurate stubble. :D

After some scary delays with the postal system, my SoC arrived today! AWESOME!!!!

I'm sat here in my dressing gown watching Thunderbirds on tv. I'm wearing my SoC , my dog is snoring on his bed and all is good with the world (apart from the fact that we have no mains water again...)

LOVE this hat. The felt is super soft vand very floppy. The ONLY down side with the hat is that if you put if on a hat stand the mere weight of the hat is enough to push the top dent out! It's also the best fitting hat Ive had. All the others (60cm) have either been a bit big or a bit small. This one is spot on. If you are going to get a Raiders hat I urge you to badger Kurt into making one of these for you!
