    Does Bittner refer to Franz Bittner? They're cool! I like the Wegener and Mayser too ... But maybe not the olive or long-haired types..

    Are those fur or wool? I heard that wool hats from European producers are great.

    I have been on the lookout for an Indy Mayser for the longest.

    Some are wool and some fur. You should check out the Zapf I posted in the new hats thread.

    Yes Franz Bittner. I have a bunch of their hats. Very special company IMHO.

    Unfortunately Mayser has moved away from producing / supplying traditional German hats. Luckily Faustmann and Wegener are still producing / supplying them.

    The long haired ones are not for everyone but I love them. Same with the green variants.

    I will post more pictures when I get a chance. If you have any of your collection please post.

    These are folklore hats, of course, and it's hard to say how much they're even standardised rather than "authentic". Some seem just to make loans of folkloristic elements.

    Otherwise, German and Austrian hats are and were probably pretty much the same as French, British or American hats, no?

    Well, Shaul Ike, he did say "Traditional"...

    I guess it's the Tyrolean hat thing- there are many different styles but I think the names of them become mixed up and transposed, especially when we speak about them in English.

    Here are my contributions to German/Austrian-
    but only one(the last) in the Traditional, Tyrol/Alpen/Trachten/Jagt/Forst/Schützen/Bergstieger/etc. style.
    (did I miss one?) There should be a couple more- I seem to have mis-placed a box of hats, since moving...

    Vintage 1920s* "Gompertz" Fedora:


    Vintage, 1930s* "Phönix" Homburg:




    Vintage, 1930s* "India" Homburg-ish:




    Here's my Traditional, Vintage- probably '70s/'80s, a "Goumbeck, Bavarian Velour",
    in a Forest green, which is really closer to an Emerald- very luxurious,
    a quality hat, complete with "Berg Heil" pin.
    Excuse the dust, blur and natural lighting- getting very Autumnal here:
