  3. Sandmann Wien XV, Wool, measures 58cm, Crown 6 inches, Brim Curled 2 inches maybe 1930s. The Wool Felts finish is coarse and reminds of some of the Austrian and German Wool Stiff Felts I have that are from the same time period and earlier. The felt has a stiffness to it but still easily dry creases. Also uniquer long bow length is interesting. I really like finding olde Wool Soft Felt hats like this one and the other Sandmann Wien XV.

  6. Echter Mayser "Spezial", 59cm, Crown 5 1/2 inches, Brim 2 1/2 inches probably later 1950s. This is a really great looking later Homburg. Also in near mint condition.

  7. "NEUHEIT / Novelty" "SPITZENKLASSE / Top Class", measures 58cm, late 1930s. This German Velour arrived recently. I am trying to figure out what company made it but that could prove futile. I really like the color and the Velour has a great finish and hand. Also the hat has a very unique liner design with reed piping.

    The piping reed is visible the following photo (top of liner).

    Very interesting find, Steve. That longer bow design is really striking.

  12. Stefan, Thank you again. Also you are correct about your "Leica" Velour being made by the same company. Can you make out the wording around "Neuheit" on the liner logo?

    Can't make out the word on the left. The word on the right reads like "FEIN" (fine) to me.

  14. Stefan, Thanks, that makes sense. I will have to check again and see it there is a paper label. I didn't see one the first time I checked. Most likely a hat made for one of the distributors like F.W. Schneider Köln.

    This one is great! I love the color of the velour.
    Maybe the wording around "Neuheit" is like "EXTRA FEIN"?
    Often written in German clothing...

  19. Matt, Thanks! I think you are correct about it being "EXTRA FEIN". Good detective work!
