  • Indiana Jones Adventure Hat

    $355.00$770.00

    Our take on the Indiana Jones adventure hat (fedora) from the Indiana Jones movie.

    A classic fedora crown with a rakish curve to the brim brought this old hat back into public favor with the enormously popular Indiana Jones movies. Harrison Ford established himself as one of the top leading men in Hollywood with his portrayal of Archaeologist turned Treasure Hunter, Indiana Jones in 1981. We have modified the look of our Indiana Jones Adventure Hat by doing a 3 1/2" inch brim for better weather protection.
