A really nice black Stetson fur felt Homburg from the early 1950s! It's a size 7 and, in today's fashion world, a unisex hat that looks equally great on a man or woman! A homburg is a close cousin of the fedora, slightly more formal due to its slightly narrower brim that can easily be worn rolled or semi-turned in the fedora style as shown in the photos. The crown is 4 1/2" high and the brim is 2 1/8 wide. The sweatband is leather and the lining is satin with soft plastic covering over the Stetson logo. The original paper size tag is present. The hatband is marked in gold lettering with the John Stetson Company hallmark and Royal DeLuxe Stetson on one side. The other side is marked in gold lettering Frankels, Des Moines, Iowa. Frankels was an upscale department store in Des Moines for many years.
This homburg fedora is in very good to excellent condition!
