    Wotan homburg in black. Size 57 with the brim at 6cm and the crown 10,5cm at the center dent. This one has me stumped about its age. As Norse and Germanic mythology was embraced by the nazis, it was at the very least frowned upon in the post-war years. So I think a manufacturer wouldn't choose this as a brand name like Wotan (the Germanic equivalent of Odin) until at least the mid to late sixties. It looks earlier than that though (liner is still stitched in for example). Looking at the liner logo I think Wegener may be the manufacturer. A hat called Wotan: had to have it.

    Thanks, Steve. Only problem with it is, that it's too large for me!

    More than two weeks since the last posting here in the nation? That will not do.
    A recent addition and not the first time hats seem to travel in packs. This one could be the twin to the Wegener Cornett I posted here recently; it's just a different brand, but very close in colour.
    Hückel Exclusiv. Size 56 with the bound brim at 6cm and the crown 10,5cm at the center dent. The colour of the auction pics was quite a bit different (that happens a lot), but I was not disappointed. No labels underneath the sweat, which is quite common for Hückel Welheim hats. The side dents sort of accidentally happened.

    I have to find a way to BLOCK this Homburg thread as every time I see one of these fabulous hats it evinces such strong feelings of want that upset my day! There is just something about a great looking Homburg.....and most of them are great looking.

    I have the same thing and usually I give in and buy myself another one. Maybe HAA (homburg addiction anonymous) would be an answer.

    I've found that wearing one affords temporary relief.

    In these days I have made the census of the homburgs (Lobbia in Italian and Diplomatique in French) contained in my collection. I followed various tracks to date them and the most fascinating was to follow the movements of the "A. Meer" shop in Strasbourg to date the numerous NOS hats that I bought a few years ago.
    Tirard Diplomatique 1.jpg These homburgs were made by Tirard, a well-known French brand that was the first (1956) to close its doors among the great hatters born and raised in France
    Tirard Diplomatique 3.jpg
    These hats are marked on the lining or on the sweatband with the last address of the shop that opened in that locations in 1953 and closed definitly in 2004.
    Starting from the far left here the interiors of the first two and then the last one Tirard Diplomatique interno 1.jpg Tirard Diplomatique interno 2.jpg
    Here the paper labels under the sweatband, always starting from the far left. As you can see the first two belong to the same lot
    Tirard Diplomatique etichetta 1.jpg
    Tirard Diplomatique etichetta 2.jpg Tirard Diplomatique etichetta 3.jpg
    Tirard "Ragondia" were the exact brand of these homburgs that have felts of the same weight with different shades of greys and the ribbons and brims are matching the felts for two and in a light contrast for theone on right.
    The finishes are top notch and the high-class hats

    NEVER will I have such a magnificent display of Hommies as seen here. But the ones I have are big, big, BIG!!
    Global hat swaps are microcosms of how our world should work!!!
    Thanks to our friend @Rumad, I was the fortunate recipient of this quite regal circa late 1950s navy blue with a (very difficult to render) deep dark burgundy ribbon Caxton Homburg... in a size EIGHT (8). Those are the details. Here is the lid!

    You are correct. There will always be differences of opinion but we do seem to do well with our sensibility, humor, and civility. The colors on the Caxton really stand out. Wear it with pride. We look forward to seeing more pictures very soon!

    Great looking hat and a Caxton no less. The homburg nation is so proud of this new member, Charlie. Gorgeous hat. I think there's a Caxton thread here on the lounge somewhere too. It deserves to be in there as well.
