Spotted in Today's Mail

I saw a large postcard ad in today's mail with a big picture of Harrison Ford, circa 1981, wearing the trademark brown fedora of Indiana Jones. The company that sent it out, U.S. Wings, sells authentic military-style bomber jackets and other similar gear, and is also selling brown leather Indiana Jones jackets (men's, women's and children's sizes) and fedoras as well. Full disclosure: Back in the mid-1980s, I had a brown leather jacket and a brown fedora. I got them for a Halloween costume party, and yes, I went as Indiana Jones. Hats have long since gone out of fashion for everyday wear, but that brown fedora looked damn sharp.

We won't even go into that unfortunate Miami Vice period in 1986.
