    Post New Hats Here!

    Thank you @Bill Hughes for passing on this Mallory Aristocrat Quality! The second photo has typical camera distortion making it look taller than it really is.

    I’m sure this must have been posted before but it is new to me. Looks like an impromptu hat check at a hotel event of some kind in the 1950s. Wonderful to see so many distinctive creases—each owner creating his own style. David
