    This is IVAR HOMBURG.

    I first made SVEN HOMBURG last year, after my grandfather, and wanted a less defined look in IVAR. Front is more flat and the sides curl more on the sides. Picture has the 5.5 inch black color and the 5 inch crown dark beige.

    I’ve seen your work on Etsy. We need more custom hatters in the world and I hope you find great success.

    Thank you kindly Steven! I am digging deeper into anything before 1940s. Love the style and the feel of wearing those hats.

    Thanks! Very enjoyable work, happy to do it full time.

    Thanks! I am glad that Etsy is really picking up. Great platform and a lot of new aspiring artists in handmade goods are emerging. Most of what is in my store are influenced by all the requests that I have received over the months. I do not keep any complete hat in stock, all custom made.

    Just completed making my first HJALMAR BOWLER. It is a 5.5-inch crown and 2-inch brim when curled. Black color Rabbit & Hare Mix fur felt.

    This style of tall bowler is what made me start making hats. Just never had the skills to make one at first.

    Hi! Thank you kindly. Yes, I finally made my own thread. Been occupied with making hats lately that I have not been very active recently, crazy two months. There are so many cool hats around this forum that I need to take a look at.

    Your support has been amazing. Thank you :)

    RAGNAR FEDORA. The vintage style that is so simple and yet very elegant. The one I wear should have a bit roughed up look, like its been somewhere and has a story to tell. This one is a Rabbit & Hare mix, as so many of my hats, with a 5.5 inch tall crown and 2 1/2 inch brim.

    Very nice, Mikael. I really like the classic look of this hat. Ideal proportions.

    Thanks Steur! My ideal vision, since this was an order, would be to make the edges of the brim less even and more rough. Think I have another picture somewhere, have to dig that up of course.
