Where does one find a quality Fedora similar to the one Indy wore, but in light gray, medium gray, dark gray or navy?  I want a brown one like I want mumps, and black is no better.  I need a size 7-7/8 or 8.

Thanks.

Hi

Akubra has an excellent reputation on the Fedora Lounge.  The Federation IV is the fourth generation of Indiana Jones styled hats.  Check your size at a hat store before you order, these are from Australia, and shipping ain't cheap.  These are 100% rabbit fur, no wool, and are styled very close to the movie hat.  They sell two colors of gray, Charcoal and Moonstone. 

You might also try this place:

I know a number of people who swear by Penman (though I don't own one myself...more of a derby fan, I've found).  By all accounts me makes a fine hat, and he'll build you anything you want.  I'm not sure about his pricing.

There's a thread about them here (http://thefedorachronicles.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=113&t=7071).

Hi

Adventurebuilt and / or Penman hats has a 7-8 month wait according to a Fedora Lounge thread, but they would be worth a call.  I don't own and haven't seen one, but to all accounts, they're a great hat.  I wouldn't council someone to buy a custom hat as their first fedora.  Don't blow the big $ until you KNOW what you want.

Just my $0.02

 D bar J hats donated a gift certificate for a custom fedora to last years AZSA World Championships. www.dbarjhat.com.  Please say thank you for his support of AZSA when you call.

I own several of their hats.  All of my derbys and most of my cowboy hats are D bar J's.  I bought my first fedora from David at the SASS Convention last December and it's every bit as good as all his other hats.
