    Boston has a very well known vintage store called Bobby from Boston. It's on GQ's 100 Best Stores list. I visited this afternoon for the first time. They had a nice little hat section. They had some truly vintage fedoras with beautiful, soft, buttery felt. But they were all too small for me.

    I did find this really cool Homburg. You guys can tell me for sure, but my hunch is that it's quite modern. I'm guessing 80s at the oldest. I bought it mostly because of the hat store it came from - Meyer the Hatter. I grew up in New Orleans, so that was very special to me. The hat card inside is very cool too.

    I have been thinking about midnight blue Homburg. So finding one in my size from my home town...I just had to go for it. It was $50. Not a bargain, but not a lot of cash laid out either.

    My wife went to bed early, so I'll have to get her to take a picture of me wearing it tomorrow.

    Very nice indeed. I think the classic homburg tyle, as opposed to the more "jazzed up" modern rendition, is my favorite hat. Great history and story as well!

    P.S.--Of the non-westerns that is....

    Awesome Hat!...

    and $50.00 really isn't so bad- I think you got a pretty good score there, my friend!

    I would have to agree that's a nice find. I'm really needing to add a fur felt Homburg to my wardrobe-notice I said needing, as looking at it that way seems to justify my "investment" to those who may pose the question, "John, do you really need another hat?" So when I respond with, "Yes, by golly, I do need a Homburg!" I can feel like I'm not fibbing...;) Once again, congrats on a nice lid.
