  2. Ottmar Reich "Royal Exquisit", 55 cm, possibly 1950s. Stefan from the FL took photos of this hat a vintage retailer.
  3. Franz Gober München "Meisterklasse" "Standard", 57cm possibly later 1950s. This hat belongs to Yamahana (Greg) on the FL.
  4. Hückel "Extra", measures 60cm possibly late 1940s. This hat belongs to Stefan on the FL. It's similar to this Hückel Flexible (150 Year / 1949) that Manfred found back in 2013. https://germanaustrianhats.invisionzone.com/topic/6-johann-hückel´s-söhne-hückel-hutfabrik-weilheim/?do=findComment&comment=794
  5. Wegener "Em / 7", 58cm, Brim 2 1/4 inches, Crown Open 5 1/2 inches, 3.00 ounces, NOS condition, possibly 1950s. The greenish blue felt is very light weight and pliable. "Em / 7" might be related to the felt weight. The bow design, form and dimensions are very similar to some later 1930s and early 1940s German market hats. g Open Crown Hut - Braun, Peter Braun (est. 1598) is still in business but not at the address on the hat (Bahnhofstr. 16.) which adds mystery to the dating. I will have to see if I can find why this is the case.

  9. This is from Österreichische Hut Zeitung (Austrian Hat News) December 31, 1937. This is a partial response to a survey sent to the participants of the Autumn 1937 Vienna Homburg Hat Propaganda. As previously mentioned the Austrian Hat Industry became retail customer oriented around the mid 1930s. See previous posts for more details. Experiences with the Homburg Propaganda.

  10. This is from Österreichische Hut Zeitung (Austrian Hat News) December 31, 1937, Pages 1,2. This editorial is from Anton Pichler Hutfabrik/Hat Company, Graz, Austria. The editorial discusses the Viennese "Homburghut / Homburg Hat propaganda campaign of 1937. PROPAGANDA FOR THE PROPAGANDA. By Ing. Anton Pichler (Anton Pichler Company, Graz). For New Year's, every newspaper wished its readers all the best. l do not want the readers of the "Hut Zeitung / Hat News" to have a better wish than to take these lines very seriously, in the interest of everyone in the ha
  11. This is from Österreichische Hut Zeitung (Austrian Hat News) December 10, 1937, Page 10. It's very interesting that the Austrian Hat industry had a propaganda campaign to bring back the Homburg Hat. This is the first time I have encountered the term "Homburg" being used by the Austrian or German Hat Industries. For some reason I never looked close at these December 1937 editions. Possible the Austrian Hat Industry became more fashion oriented (to help increase sales) and that could be the reason they dropped "macher" from the newspaper name (not sure when this occurred in the 1930s).

  14. Some great background information from Wolfgang (ErWeSa). To your picture: the men shown there have had their medical examinations for the army and were found fit to serve in the army - this was celebrated by putting these decorations on their hats and suits (and by drinking lots of beer). There is an article in German here: https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Musterung#/media/Datei:1912-xx-xx_Josef_Riedl_(1889-1948)_from_Frankenfels_at_Musterung,_Austria.jpg and here: https://www.hna.de/lokales/schwalmstadt/blumen-waffen-1316911.html Here are some more photos: https://www.a
