It has been a while in the making, but here is a thread dedicated to hats from the low countries: Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg. Benelux in short and hence Beneluxury. Of the three Belgium was the most important player internationally where hats are concerned, but we'll see more of that as the postings roll in. I'll start off with this one: Zephyr homburg made by Staalmeester (made by Nehoefa, A Dutch manufacturer). Size 56 with the brim at 6cm and the crown at 10 at the center dent. I'm thinking this one is pre-war, but it would be only just because the manufacturer was founded in 1937 in Laren, province of North Holland, but they moved to Bussum that same year. More on them later. Edit: if the Zephyr branding was supposed to mean it was lightweight, it has to be said that the hat is certainly not that at 136 grams. Zephyr as a brand, model or quality name is used so many times by various manufacturers that it can fill its own thread.
