adVintage MasterPiece Fedora Hat - 100% beaver felt / 100x
Shape of Hat: Temple
Due to a high volume of orders and the resulting backlog, this item will not be available for order until the 3rd quarter, thank you for your understanding. The naming of this fedora hat is my promise as a hatmaker: when you are looking for one of the best handcrafted fur felt fedora hats, you don’t have to look no further. Maybe you already know from my handcrafted hats, that I stabilize the felt structute with the help of water, heat and pressure to secure that the hat keeps its shape for a long time. The MasterPiece Fedora is blocked in a special method, that lets the felt hairs re-arrange and merge, which significantly increases the persistence of the hat. This method is also known as „Pre-Aging“. What else can you expect from a adVintage Masterpiece Fedora? Finest, silky surface, dual „waterproofing“, „bullet proof“ lock stitching of the sweatband, the ribbon and bow made from one piece and very fine sewing. All in all roughly twice the labour time is neccessary for a MasterPiece hat, which is the main driver for the price difference. Every single MasterPiece fedora hat is a one of a kind, crafted in many hours of handwork, from only the best materials and comes with an certificate of authenticity.I'll send you a questionnaire by email after receipt of your order, so that we can determine your exact hat size and each details of your fedora. You can choose your favorite sweatband and hat lining color, and the stiffness of the felt. A free laser engraving of the sweatband, such as your name, initials or a logo is also possible. Furthermore, if you have special requests, you can also choose from different felt colors (all 100% beaver felt), brim widths, crown heights, ribbons in different widths and colors, brim finishes and so on. I am happy to send you felt and ribbon samples by letter upon request.This fedora will be handcrafted for you on order. The delivery time consists of  a lead time (other orders ahead), production (about 10-14 days) and shipping (Germany about 3 days, Europe about 4-7 days, other countries about 20-30 Days).

Clipper Fedora Hat - 100% beaver felt (100x)
Due to a high volume of orders and the resulting backlog, this item will not be available for order until the 3rd quarter, thank you for your understanding. The Clipper Fedora is a slightly different version of the Raider Fedora. It has a wider ribbon and no Raiders Turn. The most important thing about the Clipper is the right color. In one film scene the hat looks more "grey-beige", in another more "steel-grey". With my "smoke-grey" color I have found a felt that shows exactly this colour spectrum under different light conditions. I know that there are different opinions regarding this special hat, so I also offer the Clipper in other greys and / or with standard wide ribbon upon request.  Everything I do to create your Fedora hat, from blocking over sewing and shaping, is completely done by hand.

CS Hero Fedora - 100% beaver felt / 100x
Due to a high volume of orders and the resulting backlog, this item will not be available for order until the 3rd quarter, thank you for your understanding. The CS Hero Fedora Hat is indeed something very special, because it is an exact copy of the hat used in the fourth movie. How is that possible? Thanks to Marc Kitter, the creator of the original Fedora hat worn by Harrison Ford in the 4th movie adventure. Back then Marc and his business partner Steve Delk (known as Adventurebilt / Deluxe) had made the hats for the movie absolutely by hand. Since Marc changed his career and left hat making behind, he not only left me, to my greatest gratitude, the original hat blocks on which the film hat was blocked, I also received insight into Marc's special techniques of hat making and know-how about the materials used.So it is possible that the adVintage CS Hero Fedora can be recreated on the original hat blocks, using the exact beaver felt (texture, special features and color) and using Marc's special hat making techniques. Even the hat lining and sweatband bow are absolutely screen accurate. However, please note that this hat is still made under the "adVintage" brand and with an adVintage sweatband made of the best cowhide leather in the correct color.About twice as many working hours go into a CS Hero Fedora as into a "normal" handmade adVintage hat made of 100% beaver felt. In addition, I have some materials specially made for this, hence the price difference.We will discuss the exact hat size and any special requests via eMail as soon as I have received your order.Pictures of the hat will follow as soon as possible.
