After writing and starring in "Rocky" (1976), Stallone went on to direct Rocky 2 through 6, and continued with a plethora of other great franchises. After Rocky 5, Stallone was saying that he would not make any more "Rocky's". However, a few years later he felt he needed to make a real end to the series, and tie everything up (something #5 didn't really do). So, he decided to make one more film, this one simply called "Rocky Balboa". Baron was approached to replicate the iconic stingy brim fedora and was lucky enough to see the original hat in person. From the original hat, we were able to produce and replicate an exact replica. Stallone and his team returned to our shop shortly after "Creed" (2015) went into production to make another fedora for Stallone to wear in the film.
Our "The Contender" is inspired by that famous piece of Rocky lore that Stallone wore throughout five incredible sagas. It is made in the same very dark blue with the matching fabric hatband.
