Rabbit fur Homburg hat

Simon Smuts-Kennedy of Hills Hats custom-made this Homburg hat for Joe (Hohepa) Lindsay from Fat Freddy’s Drop. It's made from rabbit fur. Simon developed this style, which he calls the 'New York Homburg', about five years ago. "Every hatter has their own look with this shape. Mine is slightly taller than a Homburg and has almost a Fedora pinch in the front."
