History of the Homburg


Homburg hat are named after the town of Bad Homburg in Hesse, Germany, a spa destination famous for its healing waters. 

Like other dress hats, the homburg was in low demand during the later part of the 20th century. However, in 1973 Al Pacino put the homburg back on the style map when he wore it in a little movie you might have heard of — that's right, “The Godfather.” Regarded as one of the greatest films of all time, it's no wonder that the homburg gained popularity and has since been known as the "Godfather hat."

That said, the Felt Homburg Hats has not held onto its popularity as much as the fedora, probably because it is a dressier hat and we are living in a much more casual world.
