I'm new to this forum and will post on more general topics
having to do with hat history, I imagine. For the moment,
I thought I'd bring to your attention a Mallory hat (pre-Stetson)
with an unusually large brim someone is selling on eBay.
I was going to buy it and went through what seem to be a
common song and dance trying to figure out the size. Finally
the seller brought it to a hat shop where she was shown a
tag stating 7 1/4, which is too small for my 7 1/2 - 7 5/8 head.
Anyway, have a look and tell me what you'd call it!
