Also, the J.Crew one is $58 (plus student discount) while the one at TPHC is $67, so it's a bit cheaper to get it from J.Crew. The 2nd hat I posted is $33 at TPHC. I could just get jeans at Wal-mart for $15-$20 since the all essentially look and work the same by your logic. Any other hat options? I'd rather get a fedora than a trillby, but am open to looking at various things.
I stand corrected. Actually, the reason I thought of this is that I bought an Indiana Jones-style hat at a drugstore once in an emergency situation, and then a short while later I saw the same hat in a clothing store for double the price. Same exact hat, same exact brand. For the record, I like the look of #2 better, although you'd have to be careful about how much sun it lets through if that matters for you.
