I have always had an affinity for hats, and this particular hat is a Mallory by Stetson felted wool fedora purchased from the Strathcona Antique Mall. Unfortunately I haven't been able to narrow down the exact year it came from. I do know that Stetson acquired the Mallory Hat Company in 1946 and ceased making hats under that name by 1965. That is a twenty year discrepancy, but regardless, my hat is a piece of history that I am honoured to have in my possession.
Here I styled it with a suede envelope bag by Malorie Urbanovitch, an oversized quilted jacket from Étoile by Isabel Marant, a Gant Rugger oxford shirt, Acne Studios denim and New Balance 996 sneakers (photos by my dear friend Kassy).
I also need to give a shout out to Jasper Ave's newest coffee shop, Lockstock. This quaint, narrow café is tucked between Red Star and The Bower. What this place lacks in size is more than made up by the insanely good Danesi espresso (which is simply the best bean, let's be honest). I can't wait until my next weekday off so I can post up with a magazine, an Americano, and one of the delicious pastries I have heard so much about.
