There’s nothing particularly rare or special about a 1930s British homburg hat. But I don’t think I’ve seen another in this shade of taupe – a grey-ish brown with a distinct pink hue. It’s made of very lightweight felt, also quite strange for a homburg, with the sweatband also marked “Lightweight”. The brim is very flexible. Sadly it’s had something sat on top of it at some point, and there’s an unfortunate crease at the rear of the crown. There is a union label under the brim which might aid dating the hat more accurately, but I’ve lost touch with the most recent research on the labels of the “Felt Hatters and Trimmers unions”.
