From the recent Stefan @steur haul, I'm so happy to be the new owner of this Mossant Homburg. The French hat makers are often overlooked, but show their shine when they're shown.
Good to see it worn, Steve. Problem with the French hats is that they are tough to find and some French sellers, well...
Looks great Steve
Stetson St. Regis, olive color, 2 7/8” brim, 5 1/2” crown. The only flaw I can find is a faint silver dollar-sized stain on the brim that I think will come out. Felt is soft and pliable, and even though I’m not really a homburg guy, I think this one works for me.
Nice catch and you'll find that homburgs are more versatile than you'd think. Certainly in a different colour than black you can wear them pretty much formal or informal. And they are addictive
I have a homburg to post as well. It's been a while. East sea trading has been revived and the first deal was a hat exchange between Oslo and Volendam. Not a Norwegian hat, but an American one. Thanks Panos @PanosChris !
Stetson 3X beaver homburg in dark brown. Size 7 (56) with the brim at 6cm and the crown 11cm at the center dent. Usually these brown homburgs have a lighter brown colour and I have several of those. I really like this darker shade. It doesn't say St Regis on the sweatband, but the blocknumber is the same: F 296. I think this one is from the early sixties.
Molto, molto bello. I like the color and the shape
Thank you, Daniele. I do too; couldn't bring myself to pinch this one.
Fantastic find Snow. As Stefan said they can be more versatile than you would think. With a little pinch they do nicely casually with even jeans and a T-shirt.
Beautiful hat Stefan
Thanks, Joe. Very pleased with it.
Nice exchange from Panos, Stefan. Some Homburgs just don't want to be pinched. I think you made the right decision not to do so with that Stetson. Looking forward to seeing it getting some head time. Congrats.
Thanks, Steve. Felt like sacrilege putting pinches in this one. It will have to wait until after Italian week to get some headtime.
P. & C. Habig Wien "Export Qualität", early 1950s. The felt is heavy in weight but still easily hand creases. The sweatband is really fantastic with very nice P. & C. Habig Wien stamping. As usually the overall quality and form are of the highest order. This hat was made for the famous A. Breiter München hat store (still in business today).
Nice find, Steve. It's been while since we've seen a Habig.
Stefan, Thank you! Yes it's been a while.
This is my new homburg from Mr. P in Greece. Lowered the crown to 4.5", extended the brim to 2 3/4", Cocoa with chocolate ribbon. Beaver fur felt.
