    How do you rate it against the Knox 20s?

    That’s tough. By design homburgs usually have more structure and the brims are stiffer than a fedora. I know you know all this.

    The felt is very nice. It arrived open crown and it accepted a dry crease without issue. My only Knox Twenty is a decade older than this Superfine but I think I’d give the Twenty the edge.

    I ended up with this because the seller wasn’t sure if it was a 7 3/8 or 7 5/8. Rolled the dice and lost. It’s such a nice hat too. I thought about keeping it just to have it but someone should get to wear it.

    What is the brim width on this? Is it a very light grey felt (on my monitor) or a light brown?

    It’s light grey. When I get home I’ll measure the brim for you.

    That is a magnificent hat, Brent. Too bad it's three sizes too large for me. Knox superfine is an excellent homburg by any standard.

    Just making sure you saw that I added the measurement you were looking for.

    I asked Bowen the same question. He says the Twenty is better hands down.

    I would agree that the Twenty is nicer, but this felt is also very nice.
