Inspired by the hat worn by JOHNNY DEPP as John Dillinger in "Public Enemies"
"Now nobody get nervous, you ain't got nothing to fear. You're being robbed by the John Dillinger Gang. That's the best there is! These few dollars you lose here today are going to buy you stories to tell your children and great-grandchildren. This could be one of the big moments in your life; don't make it your last!"
Like so many of Depp's characters, and the hats he wears, this fedora has already amassed an almost mythical notoriety. The image of Depp as Dillinger holding his sub-machine gun and wearing this hat, has taken its place in our Cinema lexicon. And its special qualities were not lost on anyone, from the very moment he put it on during the production. In fact, while filming on location in Oshkosh , WI, a local boy, aged 11, told Depp he loved his fedora hat and would love more than anything to have one just like it. Depp told the boy he would see what he could do about that. After filming finished, Depp sent the boy the hat in the mail!
As John Dillinger himself said: "All my life I wanted to be a bank robber. Carry a gun and wear a mask. Now that it's happened... I sure am happy!" Yes, these larger-than-life icons knew how to live, and what made them happy. Order a custom made "Dillinger" today, and put a crocked smile on your face as well!
PRAISE FOR "THE DILLINGER":
"Wow, wow, wow! Just received my "Dillinger". What an absolutely stunning hat. From the hatband to the black & gold silk/satin lining... Everything about the hat is spot on! It looks like it just stepped out of the 1930s. Crown height, brim width, classic bash, it's just perfect. I am more than impressed & incredibly pleased: I'm yet to take it off! Once again, many thanks for creating a most wonderful article of head wear. Like I always say..... A Baron hat isn't just a hat, it's THE HAT!
