    I will gladly pay you next Tuesday for a Homburg today.

    (I realize there are places I would be taken outside and shot for wearing that hat with that collar.)

    .... and yesterday's cap.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Sounds like a Greek fisherman's hat.

    Florentines do have tough going for them. But I agree true milans are nicer to wear.

    Nice looking homburg.

    This morning’s hat: Great Plains Hat Company Western with a slightly tapered telescope.
    Really digging this style and I might look to augment its representation in my collection.
    The brim is 3 1/2 inches. I think 3 would be perfect.

    Yes. Greek fisherman's. What is on the badge of yours?

    It has an Acubra look about it. Nice looking hat, Jeff.

    I have no idea if the badge is a logo or something historic or just some random artwork.

    Very unique. That hat suits you well. It should make your summer a lot nicer!

    That hat blows me away every time I see it. I’m also envious of weather that allows you to wear a coat.

    Man, that is nice, Stefan. Might be willing to trade something blue for that. Ha ha.

    Thanks, Brent. Too warm to wear one and too cold to go without. And some showers here and there, so best to have one.

    No way I'm going to play hat poker with you, Stefan. Wow! What a full house that Dobbs has. Colour, style, dimensions, wide ribbon. Need I go on? Love it.

    Brüder Böhm Wien possibly early 1900s. Made of Wool and from my vault.

    An early image of the Vienna plant in a beautiful period frame. A while ago I received this photo from the grandson of Victor Böhm, owner and chief inventor at Brüder Böhm.

    Thank you. It's twin may arrive today, an ivory for its ebony. Something posessed me to purchase two St. Regis Stetsons last weekend. The second one looked very light in the pictures. I think the seller called it beige, but I'm anxious to see if enough tagging still exists to see what Stetson called it. Maybe silver?

    I picture Jack London in something like that in his bay pirate days.
    I really like the belt front, and all of it looks perfect conditionwise.

    My first thought seeing the badge was symbolism from the time when Russia was really the strongest power standing in the gap, representing Christendom in the face of Ottoman expansion. North of the Bosporus, they were the line. The eagle, however, was usually depicted with a head (or face) looking each way, meaning watchful vigilance.

    This hemp is a bit thicker and stiffer than my others and is holding up well to tropical island life. I may go for the larger brim Akubra Range next.

    Steve, I'll be damned. How cool to receive something like that from someone so close to it all. In the late 70's I left school and went to work for some of my family selling welding supplies. In one of the industrial parks around Huntsville was a German company named Bruderer that was a customer. They built high speed punch presses capable then of 25,000 pcs. per min. Can't imagine what they might be capable of now if they're still in business. The place looked like a giant hospital surgical suite and sounded as if a hundred machine guns were being shot simultaneously. Anyway, I wonder if there might be some sort of connection, considering the name?
