Homburg Hat is a fur felt hat with a gutter crown, i.e., the crown with a single long dent covering the entire length. The hat’s brim is flat with a pencil curl shape, i.e., slightly raised and curved up, creating a moat-like structure.
Homburg Hat was worn on semi-formal occasions during the 19th century as a top hat alternative, similar to the bowler or the boater hats. The hat was decorated with a wide grosgrain ribbon around the crown.
One of the most popular wearers of the Homburg Hat was Al Pacino in the movie The Godfather. The most common colors for a Homburg Hat are black and grey.
