    Ha, profit margins are hard when your collection is overwhelming, but the locals get to see inspect fit try on & they get engaged to take more than 1 in person.
    in the past i moved a lot of boots here & boots are not easy to store
    I just sold a nice pair of boots to a long time member here yesterday 1 down tons left.
    I have fedoras 7-1/8 to 7-14 & boots sizes 10 to 11 leathers size 40 to 42 & i ship message me if anyone would like info.

  9. With highs flirting with 80 degrees, I chose straw today: Stetson Derringer:

    Re-shaped the un-branded velvet Fedora to a Pork Pie. The ribbon and bow treatment just gave me that vibe.

    Took it for a spin today. IMG_20210321_225752.jpg IMG_20210323_135727.jpg IMG_20210323_142753 (2).jpg IMG_20210323_135721_1.jpg

    Mallory Premier
    Rich chocolate brown felt
    4 1/2 crown as shaped
    1 5/8 brown grosgrain ribbon
    2 1/2 front 2 3/8 sides dimensional brim with 3/8 bound edge


    A real heavy brushing removed several decades of dirt, dust and cigarette smoke to reveal the absolutely beautiful rich chocolate brown felt on this Mallory Premier with whippet styling. The liner has the 1817 date which I believe indicates a post 1946 Stetson take over hat. My guess would be a 1950s hat. This hat very very much so looks and feels a whole heck of a lot like my whippet in it’s blocking, proportions and styling as well as felt quality. Really really happy with this hat. Definitely not bad for a “Boys Size 7 Youth Dress Hat”. Thank you to @BobHufford for the enabling on this one!
