Godfather Homburg

Al Pacino popularised the Homburg by wearing one in the film ‘The Godfather’.

For this reason, the homburg is sometimes called the "Godfather" and is an instantly recognisable and truly iconic hat, having initially been popularised by Sir Anthony Eden in the 1930s.

Care

Steam from a household kettle and a hard bristle hat brush will help remove dust and dirt. Brush the hat using short strokes, following the natural direction of the fibre.

Wet hats should be kept away from direct heat and should be dried using a clean, absorbent cloth or sponge.

Felt hats are best stored in a hat box, away from direct sunlight.

Materials

The 'kettle curl' brim of this hat is made of smooth rabbit felt and is trimmed with grosgrain ribbon, while the gutter crown is finished with a band and bow. It is fully lined with Lock & Co.'s signature lining and has a leather inner sweatband which can be monogrammed.

Styling & Fitting

The hat can be worn with or without the pinches, either way is acceptable.
