  • Anthony Eden hat


    The homburg, this time, was on another head, that of Winston Churchill: Eden shakes hands with Roosevelt An "Anthony Eden" hat, or simply an "Anthony Eden", was a was a type of headgear popularized in Britain in the mid-20th century by politician Anthony Eden, later 1st Earl of Avon (1897–1977). Eden, who was known for his sartorial elegance, favoured a silk-brimmed, black felt Homburg at a time when most Britons preferred the trilby or the bowler. Eden held a number of cabinet posts in the 1930's and 40's and was Prime Minister from 1955 to 1957. The hat became so associated with him that it was commonly known in the UK as the "Anthony Eden" (or, in London's Savile Row, simply as the "Eden", ). It was not marketed as such and the name was purely informal, but the use of the term was widespread, entering dictionaries and phrase books: for example, it was still listed in the 17th edition of Brewer in 2005 and as recently as 2010 the fashion "guru" Trinny Woodall cited the hat as an example of Eden's reputation for being well dressed.
