Stetson Royal Custom-V in 7 1/8. The crown is 5 1/2” open and the brim is 2 1/2 and finished with an overwelt with three rows of stitching. The felt is a wonderful heather and is easily shaped dry. Nothing hiding behind the sweatband and the liner is obviously not original.

With that wafer edge.. similar to flagship. But a more heathered felt. Very nice.

Beautiful. Is the rear brim a 1/4” shorter? It has a very jaunty, weekend-in-the-country look.

1930s Mallory - Black/Charcoal Heather Melusine
4 1/2 crown as shape (approx 5 1/2 open)
2 inch black grosgrain ribbon
2 1/4 brim underwelt brim
2 inch black sweatband

So here is a hat that several of you kindly pointed me in the direction of probably over a year ago… including Jonathan @TheOldFashioned, Jim @Frunobulax and @Randall Renshaw and probably a few others. It remained on my watch list for more than a year as the seller slowly lowered his price and for one reason or another I never made the purchase. My wife finally pulled the trigger on it as a birthday present. For $23.99 with shipping included… it arrived in a plastic envelope! FLAT as a pancake! I was able to get it into a reasonable shape by hand yesterday and spent some time steaming it up today. Not bad! I must say! The hat arrived smelling of cigarettes, which dissipated after setting in the sun.. but while steaming it released a very sweet smell of something like cherry tobacco.

So I’m told this Mallory Established 1823 tombstone logo tends to point to mid 20s to 30s. The United Hatters, Cap And Millinery Union Workers tag indicates 1934 or later…. So I’m gonna guess mid 1930s. Unusual for the era black sweatband at about two inches. The super soft long hair felt is a black/charcoal heather. It is extremely soft and malleable.. but steam really helped to keep a shape. The brim comes in at 2 1/4 with a tight almost blind stitched underwelt. Can’t decide if I like it better brim up or down.. luckily I don’t have to choose. Thanks the everyone who tried to steer me toward this beauty.

Very cool hat, Joe and looks great on you—like a time machine set to 100 years ago.

A real beauty, Joe. Can’t believe they shipped THAT hat in an envelope, but it sure bounced back.
