Al Pacino popularised the Homburg by wearing one in the film ‘The Godfather’, and for this reason, the hat is sometimes called the "Godfather". The Homburg is an instantly recognisable hat.
The 'kettle curl' brim is made of smooth rabbit felt and is trimmed with grosgrain ribbon, while the gutter crown is finished with a band and bow. It has Lock & Co.'s signature lining and a leather inner headband.
The hat can be worn with or without the pinches, either way is acceptable.
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.
