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.

Funny how it does that.. we are entering the word into the Lexicon LOL. You both look great todayDay three of my pre-Stingymas (Stingymas now shows up on my predictive text) sees me in my stingiest of stingies. This Christys’ Exclusive Kent Fur Felt Trilby was my first fur felt. The felt colour is mink. I really like the little strip of matching ribbon under the main mustard coloured ribbon. The brim is 4cm.

Not much to see inside, especially as I had the fabric sweatband replaced by an unmarked leather one. View attachment 469715
Etsuko’s not joining in on the pre-Stingymas fun. Akubra Leisure Time for her.
