    Looks great! It's a Tonak Hückel from Novy Jicin, Czechoslovakia. J. Hückel´s Söhne was nationalized as Tonak after WWII. Does it have a paper label behind the sweatband and mark on the other side of the sweatband? Probably best to post the photos again here so I can respond.

    Here you can find more info on JHS than you probably want to know. :)

    Thank you! Great looking Lock & Co. Homburg from you today!

    Charlie, Thanks! I found this one about a year ago but I came across it again last week. I am not really sure about how old it is. It has the look of a late 1920s hat but it could have been made a bit later from old stock. I really like to find old hats with the tip patches still present. This one is exceptional because it was never worn.

    Tweed Adam today.
    Not normally a tweed fedora guy, but this hat is probably the nicest tweed fedora I've ever seen.

    I know next to nothing about Huckel, but I know that is a great looking hat.

    Very nice color and finish on that felt, and beautiful contrast color for the ribbon. Fine looking hat, indeed.

    There is no end to the amazing hats on this thread... I doze off for a couple of days and when I get back, wow!
    Not much of a contribution on my side today, my wrinkly wool hat pushed back in order to see the incoming traffic... do you take your hat off for driving? I guess it's a must if you're really tall...
    Anyway been busy getting a crowdfunding campaing ready for Barcelona's Stroll with a hat (we give free commemorative badges and with 2500 people expected to attend and no sponsors we're in deep s**t). Any how you're all cordially invited to attend, it's a free gathering and it's fun! We even have an English version of the poster :)
