    This is another hat I hate to part with but it is a true 7 1/8 and I'm just not willing to try to stretch it to fit me, I would regret it forever if I tore the sweat. Super light weight unlined Mallory Commander in a dark to med brown. Pictures are pretty true on my screen. I have never seen another one of these. There is one ad from 1945 in the Mallory Mile that mentions it. Because of the ad, the unreeded sweatband and the general shape of the hat I think it is from the war years. The Commander moniker fits with that.
    Size 7 1/8a
    Brim 2 3/4
    Crown is 5 1/2 open and 4 1/4 to the pinch as it's creased now. You can crease this hat anyway you want without steam. Super soft and pliable.
    Unreeded Sweatband
    One of the pictures seems to show the brim binding as being dirty but that's a shadow.
    Opening measurements 7 7/8" x 6 1/4
    $300 shipped to anywhere in conUS. IMG_8320.JPG IMG_8320.JPG IMG_8321.JPG IMG_8323.JPG IMG_8326.JPG IMG_8328.JPG IMG_8329.JPG IMG_8330.JPG IMG_8331.JPG IMG_8332.JPG

    An outstanding hat! However, my hat budget does not extend to these heights. Another small-headed freak will have to enjoy this Mallory!
