    Josh and Alan, thank you very much for the kind words. I really appreciate them.
    Yes, the flange looks really good. I love this form. I wish I had such a flange for other hats to do the same look.

    Mayser Homburg

    A Mayser Homburg that I own, very similar (I think) to one recently posted by Steve.

    Colour in real life is a far richer, darker chestnut brown. Condition is pretty much perfect. Picked it up a while ago in a bunch of German hats that appeared in my local vintage shop. Any idea on age of this one?







    Then let us think..... then let us smile..... then let us go.

    Rob, Wow that is a real beauty! It is very similar to mine but I think yours is a couple years older. My guess is early to mid 50s. Thank you for posting the photos!

    Yeah, sorry to be so long in getting around to posting it - and thanks for the inspiration to buy it and wear it!
    Always liked the look of Homburgs on others, but was not quite sure about them on me. But the more I wear this one, the more I like it. I suspect that I need at least a 2 1/2" brim to work for me, and a lot of Homburgs seem narrower than that.

    Manfred, Great find with Wegener Homburg! Wegener really did super bow work.

    David, I really wanted it but I didn't bid high enough. It has some condition issues but its the first pre 1940 soft felt Wegener I have encountered.
