The Indiana Jones Hat, called the "Poet Hat", is still made and sold by the company for about 215 GBP. Mr. Harrison Ford and Mr. Steven Spielberg are said to have walked into the Swaine Adeney Brigg shop which was located at 13 Old Burlington Street in London in the 1980. The two gentlemen revealed the movie plot of the Raiders of the Lost Ark and requested that a special hat be made for the movie. According to the company:
"Since the huge success of the Indiana Jones films, we have continued to make exactly the same hat still calling it 'The Poet' for fans of both the Indiana Jones movies and the starring actor Harrison Ford. The adventurer 'Indy' hat is enormously popular and as soon as the hat is put on, creates a handsome rugged look. The Poet hat like the Indiana Jones movies remains a classic and unforgettable masterpiece."
