    Both are stellar hats Eric, but I am really digging that Mallory!

    Interesting find. Wonder how it made it's way to your neck of the woods?

    Happy Birthday Stefan. Just like fine wine, better when given time to breathe.

    Inspired by a recent acquisition of Brent's, today I wore the Barclay rebuild.

    That has to be one of the most beautiful hats I have ever seen!

    This one again. One of the few hats I might commit a crime over and it won't even fit. Beautiful, Alan. Thanks for sharing this one.

    Beautiful, Alan. Love the look of the felt on that one.

    Today....thought i was done with Homburgs but i found some more.
    So...for all those Homburg’ers out there...back to America with this unruly sort. I guess it did not care for it’s communal home in a bag.
    This one can’t even play catch with that Resistol but it says it’s Superfine.
    Be well. Bowen
    Ps: thanks all for the Burg encouragements, even that “respectable” one. Lol

    Thanks very much for the appreciation. I love it too. I don't post this picture often, but you might enjoy seeing the hat as it came to me. I would rarely modify a hat this old, but the wide ribbon was torn and I wasn't convinced it was original to the hat. Rather than put on a new ribbon, I used an old narrow horsehair band. The dimensions are ample and the hat seemed able to carry a western look well.

    That looks a very nice Knox Homburg, Bowen. I particularly like the shape plus ribbon and brim binding.
    Once you've got the Homburg bug, there's no turning back

    Thanks, Jim!
    Thanks, Bowen. I gifted myself a hat to compensate, the spanking was a bonus:D

    L B Hats "Prima Original" possibly late 1930s early 1940s and a recent arrival. This is a Wool hat that was most likely made in Czechoslovakia.

    Thanks, Rick. The wine didn't get a lot of room for that this time around!

    Found some more homburgs, eh? No wonder you look so happy! Another super homburg, Bowen.
    Love it, Steve. The sweatband stitching looks a bit unusual; was it redone at some point maybe?

    Trying to be more active here on the forums, I went for a walk around the lake and wanted to get some more use out of my newest hat.

    Check me out on instagram @Klimasclassic where I talk about vintage finds and classic style :) loafer.jpeg

    Stefan, Thank you! I think you might be correct because on closer inspection I believe I can see remnants of a lighter color thread.

    Super duo of hats from you today with the Champ "Feather Weight" and P. & C. Habig Wien!
