    Stefan, As I mentioned in the German - Austrian thread it's from Max Weise Berlin. Is it possible the brim was altered?

    Great advert that, Steve. It's hard to say if the brim was cut, because it's a raw edge brim. Looking at the advert it's possible the part with the binding was cut off at one point. The perpetrator would deserve 30 lashes for that at least (more if you ask Joao).

    Great looking homburg that, Steve. What colour name does it state on the label?

    Karl, Thanks!

    Mike, Thanks too!

    Stefan, Thank you! It has Dillenburger for Farbe. Dillenburg is town not too far from Lauterbach Blitzenrod where Wegener is located. It might have something to do with Dillenburg being a good regional location for the Blue Hour but just a guess. There is a blue motif (sweatband, ribbon, felt) to the hat. Here is a photo of me wearing it.

    Steve, thanks for posting that. The deep blue colour really comes across in the daylight. Really like these blue homburgs; they do have something special.

    What a lovely shade of blue Steve. This one is really something special. Covet, envy, desire, etc.

    I agree with Mike, that is a great shade of blue on that one. Wonderful hat as usual.

    Mike, Thank you! I enjoy wearing this one. It also has the unique half width sweatband.

    Stefan, Thanks! By the way this one is from my May 2016 Czech find.

    Could be. Maybe a Dark Cobalt. It doesn't have any dye color name on the paper label (only numbers).

    Green has its own thread, but I’ve been seeing some great blue hats lately. Ya got to love a blue hat. Show us what you’ve got and what ribbons work with your shade of blue.

    My first is a modern Selentino Sterling by Tonak.

    This hat is going first because I found it a new home on eBay and it’s being boxed up tonight. Not a bad hat, but I’m thinning the herd!

    Not quite as stark electric blue, but Navy and Mirtillo (Blueberry)
