If adventure has a hat, it must be Indiana Jones's.
"For the heroes, even the fedora, jacket, and khakis were common attire".
Put a fedora on an Action Hero
, and it suddenly becomes not just another hat, but a symbol of how Badass

In some of the adventure Film Serials
, the fedora would be worn by the hero. When Indiana Jones came along, it solidified the hat as a sign of the adventurer (at least to modern audiences). It can also become an Iconic Item
of Nice Hat
A Sister Trope
to Adventurer Outfit
, Scarf of Asskicking
