I have a soft spot for olive green felt, too. Black Sheep Hat Works, with the handy dandy hat-holding hanger.

Esther's Strat-a-like or: The bespoke grey by the ladies at Gamble & Gunn.
Sorry Esther, but Tina chose the latter, so G & G it is.

Has anyone seen The "Pure Stratoliner?" It is gorgeous but I
reckon Esther nailed it. And she didn't charge me anything
like the Stetson asking price of $410. All the same I do rather
like the alabaster Strat. $410 though. Perhaps if I said it in
Stirling at £340, it sounds less.

Stetson with the new band. I know how hard it is to capture the color of felt but this band surprised me with how impossible it is to photograph. In real life it is a deep burgundy color—like the dregs of a glass of wine—but it comes out much brighter and redder and nowhere near as nice. Oh well—enjoy the day!

It's still a great choice of ribbon, David. Really makes that wonderfully shaped Fedora shine.

Looking quite sharp as usual. The Strato-like looks great

Mallory Coast to Coast - Dark Grey Brown
4 3/4 - 3 7/8 rakish crown
1 5/8 pewter grosgrain ribbon
2 3/8 brim with 3/8 bound edge

Thanks go out to @DaveProc for the tip on this Mallory Coast to Coast and a fairly dark grey brown felt. Having seen Jim’s @Frunobulax C2C I knew I wouldn’t go wrong with this buy. This I believe would be later 50s considering the card stock size tag and slightly shorter brim at 2 3/8. The dark taupe felt is offset ever so slightly with a pewter grosgrain ribbon and brim binding. The crown still sports what appears to be its factory tear drop and rakish crease. Mallory are among my favorites and I do have a few with similar (Whippet-ish) styling but none with the C2C designation or this coloring so this will fit in nicely.
