1950s Dobbs Homburg Black 7 1/4

5 inch crown (4 1/4 to center dent)

2 inch black grosgrain ribbon

2 inch brim to curl with 5/8 matching grosgrain binding

1 3/4 brown sweatband


A real nice 1950s Dobbs Homburg in black. At 7 1/4 This one is a bit too big for me so it will probably be moving along to a new home.

I was only able to find ads in 1940. So they may have only been made for a short time.
I imagine from the description it was a similar ultra thin felt to the early gay prince or cross country with no edge binding and a pug. Making a more casual impression

Won an auction for another Dobbs Twenty. A Homburg this time. The ad said its grey...color balance must have been off on the camera. We'll see in a week or so when it gets here. I really like my other Twenty. Hope this one turns out to be a good one.

Too bad so many pictures are lost from the beginning of this thread. It would be great for research. My Homburg showed up a couple days ago. It is gray not brown. I'm going to try to get some photos. I found the tags under the liner...but the data is faded and illegible. Its going to be hard to get a photo of the tag without taking the hat apart...

My Homburg showed up the other day...It turned out to be a 7 1/8 Long Oval so its not a perfect fit but its in beatiful condition. Can any of you estimate the age from the tags?
