Bollman Hat Company 140 - 1900s Homburg

140 - 1900s Homburg

Made in the USA

About the time of our Founder's death in 1900 and beginning of the leadership of his son George W. Bollman, the Homburg hat was taking its place in hat style history. Popularized in England by Edward VII after visiting Germany and bringing one back as a keepsake, the Homburg is one of the oldest formally-styled hats. As the King of England from 1901 to 1910, Edward was known as "The Peacemaker" for his efforts in fostering good relations between England and other European countries. Perhaps the Homburg was a perk of the King's diplomatic successes, but the style enjoyed its own surprising success in Great Britain and in America.
The Homburg resurfaced in the 1970's as the "Godfather" and eventually became an early staple of the hip-hop movement. The Bollman Hat Company contributed its own color and flair during each phase of the Homburg's evolution. Bollman was integral to developing the style's current counter-cultural appeal by creating a variety of diverse colors including sugar pink, burnt orange, lime green and lemon yellow.
