|A beautiful vintage German made Homburg|
The Homburg (derived from Bad Homburg in Germany) was first popularised by King Edward VII, but in the 1930s Sir Anthony Eden - praised for his good style - again started a hype around a sleeker version of the black felt Homburg - which became widely known as an "Anthony Eden" hat.
Three great examples of stylish men wearing the Homburg:
|Sir Anthony Eden|
|Sir Winston Churchill wearing a grey Homburg|
|French Haute Couture maker Jean Patou|
