How could we conceive Indiana Jones without it? There is no doubt that the Fedora is already part of the history of this classic film franchise.

But this hat can’t go unnoticed just like that. Whether you are a fan of this character embodied by Harrison Ford or not, you should know that the hat in the last film of the Indiana Jones saga was made in Seville, in Fernández y ROCHE no less. 

The story begins because we manufacture classic hats for the English market, among which is Herbert Johnson, which is the hat shop where the famous adventurer acquired his hats in the first three films, until from the fourth installment of the Indiana Jones saga, The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, the designer of the new hat, the German Marc Kitter, commissioned Fernandez y ROCHE to produce it, and its distribution was done through the company Adventurebilt Hat Co.

Without a doubt, the hats complement the image of the characters, giving us a clear and significant vision of them with which we come to associate a story, an era, a phrase and even the personality of the character himself.
