  1. Re: Original Raiders Era Herbert Johnson Hero Hat

    Yeah, yeah! ��

    I've been smashed by work this year. I have planed the block into a cylinder, and have made some cross section templates. I'm hoping that I can finish it over the Christmas holidays.
  2. Re: The long way to my ultimate Raiders hat - selfmade!

    Awesome work, man!

    More people should build their own hats. Sure it takes work, but it shows you can make something truly fantastic.
  3. Re: Original Raiders Era Herbert Johnson Hero Hat

    Thanks mate - I will let you know.
  4. Re: Original Raiders Era Herbert Johnson Hero Hat

    Reporting that the original Raiders block height was 140mm high. The felt was 2.5mm thick.

    I've been checking and triple-checking the hat and transposing all details from this original Raiders...
  5. Re: Original Raiders Era Herbert Johnson Hero Hat

    Thanks mate. happy to answer any questions.
  6. Re: Original Raiders Era Herbert Johnson

    1) no sticker that i can see - it has a number 7 in a circle printed onto the inner felt in white paint where the sticker normally is. If i recall, the ToD hat I had a few years ago had a similar...
  7. Re: Original Raiders Era Herbert Johnson

    Thanks mate - yes it's in excellent condition. I'm not going to do anything at all to it, believe me!

    The ribbon is 43/44mm.

    Crown height is approx 5 3/8".
  8. Re: Is it possible for Raiders Fedora's to lose shape?

    Yes that sort of thing can happen. Peoples heads can be different to the degree of round /ovalness of a given block, so the brim warps. Just belt those spots hard with some steam from a kettle. It...
  9. Re: Original Raiders Era Herbert Johnson

    Ok, now for some fun comparisons and observations vs. other felts.

    This is against one of my hats with a Steele & Jones body. First, let me note that the shape is MUCH closer than it looks...

    Re: Surrogate jacket options

    Hey Crisman, it's possible Johnson have jacked the price of their customs up, but it's worth hitting them up. I think mine cost $690 or so, and that included a cloth mockup. Alan said he was basing...

    Re: Episode VII Spoilers Discussion

    Wow. I hadn't checked if it was him or not, but that's kind of amazing to me. It sounded equally "meh" at each cinema I saw it at. From the opening blare of horns as the title comes up onwards, it...

    Re: Episode VII Spoilers Discussion

    Yeah it's funny isn't it - so many of the totally avoidable plot issues seems like nitpicks. But man for a multi billion dollar franchise, couldn't they have just passed the script / edit around a...

    Re: Episode VII Spoilers Discussion

    Yeah, I'm also getting a bit sick of Star Wars forgiving mass murderers. You can understand Luke trying to save Vader in RotJ - he's a young guy who had finally connected with his Dad. But here?...

    Re: Episode VII Spoilers Discussion

    Gonna sound like a total nutcase now, but I just got back from a second viewing and left far more satisfied. I think a big part of the lack of impact comes down to the music being WAY too low in the...

    Surely feeling invested is a major point of watching any movie? Or ~good~ storytelling?

    Re: Episode VII Spoilers Discussion

    I think the best part of the movie is the new characters. Some truly great moments to be had. Unfortunately it lacked any real emotional depth, even by Star Wars standards. There were no real stakes....

    I thought it was "good". I was hoping for / expecting "awesome".

    Maybe we need to start a spoilers-included thread so we can discuss?

    Re: Latest star wars episode 7 news thread

    (No spoilers or plot info - just my opinion having seen it) - lower your expectations if you are expecting the best ever Star Wars movie. I just saw it. It was ok and serves its purpose, but I was...
  24. Re: Penman Hat 23" Reblocked and Dusty by Fedoraiders SOC Unique

    Wow! Excellent work mate as usual! Your pics of the hat and its block shape ring so true it really smashes you in the face how wrong the original shape was for Raiders.

    But that's beside the point...

    Re: Indiana Jones figures for sale

    All cool man. I was thinking for Christmas, but the little guys do already have a kick arse Milennium Falcon lined up that they don't know about yet. Hard to feel too sorry for them. :)
