Popularised by Sir Anthony Eden in the 1930s, he made the homburg so fashionable that it became known as the Anthony Eden hat on Savile Row. The Homburg is a truly iconic hat.
Crafted from smooth rabbit felt, the 'kettle curl' brim is trimmed with grosgrain ribbon, while the gutter crown is finished with a band and bow. It is finished with Lock's signature lining and leather inner headband.
The hat can be worn with or without its pinches, either way is correct.
9.5cm gutter crown
4cm wide grosgrain band
Fully lined with a leather headband to keep your hat secure. The leather headband can be monogrammed.
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.
