Great choice, Héctor. Love the shape and colours.
Very good looking hat, Greg. Too bad it's not your size.
Thank you. Coming from you I take as a great compliment
Where are you ordering your new hat boxes? I'd start a new thread but I'm hitting a stone wall on doing so.
My first Mallory. Retriever model. I never heard of Mallory before I joined the Fedora Lounge and last week I read some old post, went to Ebay to look at vintage Mallory and found a very clean fur felt with stingy brim for $14.95 and $6.00 shipping. I thought I'll never get it with a $15 bid. I did, came today and its very clean except for needing a good brushing. Mallory made a nice hat. The wife said nice hat right away.
Received this Mallory this afternoon. It is an Aristocrat model with a thin ribbon like the one I wore today. The only difference is the color and the brim is shorter, which is why I bought it.
It came with all the original stickers and selling ads, pretty cool.
I buy mine locally at Levine, but I have also bought them at Hobby Lobby. They have some nice sturdy rounds one perfect for hats. I was steered in that direction by a few members in here.
Nice Mallorys all around.
Very nice.. enjoy.
Thanks Stefan. It is a neat little hat. Thanks to Bill for passing it along.
Very nice aristocrat Hector. Well done.
Thanks my friend.
Man, you’ll be ready for Oktoberfest with that one. Nice.
Pretty cool indeed, Héctor. Nice find and it looks good on you.
Should cover Oktober and St Paddy's.
Picked this up from France. Some of my very best Borsalinos seem to come from there (they are just quite good at hiding them).
Borsalino Cocisca in Dattero colour and nutria felt. Size 57 with the raw edge brim at 5,5cm and the crown at 10cm at the center dent. The quality of the felt and the hand of it is Borsalino at its best. Lightweight too at just under 100 grams. It's a keeper (if that wasn't obvious).
A recent addition and not the first time hats seem to travel in packs. This one could be the twin to the Wegener Cornett I posted here recently; it's just a different brand, but very close in colour.
Hückel Exclusiv. Size 56 with the bound brim at 6cm and the crown 10,5cm at the center dent. The colour of the auction pics was quite a bit different (that happens a lot), but I was not disappointed. No labels underneath the sweat, which is quite common for Hückel Welheim hats. The side dents sort of accidentally happened.
Another cool find, but unfortunately not in my size.
Vanzina Extra in Amarena colour. Size 58, but it has shrunk over time, because it doesn't feel like it now. Overwelt brim at 5,5cm with decorative stitching and the crown at 10cm at the center dent. Something between a chamois and a velour finish. Wonderful felt. I don't find Vanzina all that often and this is the best one I've found yet.
Fantastic new additions today Stefan
Oooo-ahhhhh on all three counts, Stefan!
