Overall Experience
I purchased this hat to wear as Master of my Masonic Lodge where tuxedo is standard attire. I love the fact that this hat is hand-made, and it's obvious in the finished product. The pictures here just don't do it justice. It looks great with a center dent in the crown. Very pleased with my purchase. (Posted on 08/05/2018)

Overall Experience
I'd been looking for a Homburg ever since I saw Sean Bean wearing one in The Frankenstein Chronicles. The brim on this hat is a bit narrower and the crown higher than i expected; "Bessemer" also is a bit darker than shown on the website; mine is closer to black than to a dark gray. Overall, though, this is a great hat at a reasonably good price. (Posted on 27/04/2018)

Overall Experience
Lovely quality to match an excellent experience with Christy's & Co, especially with an order to the United States. To note for my fellow patrions ordering from the States, regarding size, probably best to go up one size after properly measuring as provided by the size/fit video. Overall experience, however, was great. (Posted on 21/03/2018)
WOW, What a Hat!!!Review by Mitchell

Overall Experience
I recently purchased a Homburg. I was excited as I opened the box. I knew what I was to expect but the pictures on the website do not do it justice, my Homburg is simply beautiful! I thought it looked funny with an open crown on the website but in person it looks great with an open crown. It really adds character when you put a gutter crease in it. It soft, plush and you can really see and feel the quality of this hat. I have already received a few compliments about my Homburg. I will most definitely be purchasing more in the future.
Well done Christys', huzzah (Posted on 01/03/2018)

My latest Christys' purchase - and I haven't been disappointed to date! A beautifully made hat and sizing (60cm) spot-on. This has become my principal 'wear to work' hat. My only concern is one of personal squeamishness - having to dent and pinch the crown on a lovely new hat! Took several attempts before I was satisfied. I suppose that was the job of the high street hat shops of yesteryear. A cracking hat - to be recommended. (Posted on 16/02/2018)

Overall Experience
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)
