The hat is supposedly hand made. I felt the material was thin compared to US made hats. I requested it be made a long oval and they said no it can’t be done. You mean a hatmaker with over a hundred years experience can’t make a long oval hat. Still, I wanted a English hat and I got what I wanted. However, if the future I will stick with US made hats.

Exceeded all my expectations - quality at a fair price, easy to order, delivery time was reasonable, it arrived in good condition and it fit as expected. I read previous reviews and ordered one size up and it fits perfectly. I'm truly amazed at how good it looks and as others have commented a timeless classic. I was pleased with the color I selected. Very well done! (Posted on 18/10/2017)

I had originally chosen a Trilby, but after three attempts and no stock I settled for the homburg, I have to say the pictures of this hat do it no justice the brim is beautifuly turned and shaped and the timeless shape of this hat works for everything in the wardrobe. I can't get over the fit and finish of this hat. I look forward to my next purchase with Christys (Posted on 11/04/2017)

Great hat, well made British ClassicReview by Miles

Overall Experience
Great hat, in a variety of different colours to make sure you either blend in or stand out of a crowd, depending on your preference. A stiff brim and soft crown makes this akin to any classic homburg. I have vintage homburgs and the craftmanship is as good as them. It feels great to own a piece of contempory British craftmanship done in the old style, showing the fact that the art of hatting is still alive. Long may you continue, and don't let immortal classic style and quality die due to the fickle flaws of following fashion. (Posted on 07/12/2016)

Overall Experience
I have several Christys' fur felt hats from pork-pies to Kent trilbies and was looking to expand my style pool. I am very pleased with this hat; so much so that I didn't wait until Christmas before bashing it into shape with my steamer, and wearing it as my primary, every day hat! It arrived 2 weeks earlier than expected. I have it with a pinched taper at the front of the crown and a teardrop dent in the top. I have had more complements with this wine coloured hat than any of my others. (Posted on 05/12/2016)

Good day everyone from Winneconne, Wisconsin.

I live in the colder area of the United States. I always wear a hat. I LOVE my new Homburg!!! The tricky part is proper sizing. After careful measurements, I ordered the 61cm. It fit like a glove. Took an impressing 10 days for delivery across the Atlantic . Looking forward to ordering another hat (looking for a boater) from Christy's of London . (Posted on 02/12/2016)

Overall Experience
I purchased this hat in dark red - an excellent stylish choice. Compared to my earlier Christies Homburgs the style has changed subtly and very much for the better. In particular the kettle curl is much sharper and more pronounced, especially at the sides, which gives the hat a most fetching stylish appearance. I feel the height of the hat may have slightly reduced since my earlier ones from 2007/8 and overall it sits more comfortably on my head and feels part of me. I also particularly like the gorgeous red lining. So pleased am I that I also then ordered an Elm! Very happy customer (Posted on 06/08/2016)

Hat looks absolutely stunning and, at least for the moment, looks of super high quality. The price is also excellent compared to other haters. What I found what was a bit poor was that I was not provided with a hatbox when ordering the hat, but had to pay extra to get a hatbox. Seems to me a bit tacky not to offer a full and coherent service. But the hat is fabulous! (Posted on 06/04/2016)
A marvellous hatReview by Stroze

Overall Experience
A perfect fit, waterproof and a complement to any outfit. I wear mine regularly to and from work.

Only caveat is that, contra the item description, it looks nothing like a bowler when in open-crown mode. Not a problem for me as a homburg is what I wanted, but if you specifically want a bowler this is not for you. (Posted on 15/03/2016)
