Video of Prince wearing a white hat

Hello!

I'm in the process of having a white Homburger hat custom made.

I want to have this shape and style:

Since the shape is not really well to see, I'm searching for a video of Prince wearing this hat so that I can estimate the shape better.

Does anybody know such a video, for example on YouTube?

Or does anybody know more about where he got this hat from so that I can research thereß

Thank you very much!

There’s a video of him performing at Tower Records in 06 where he is wearing that. It’s on YouTube, I’m not sure what the policy is on sharing links but just search “Prince Tower Records” on YouTube and u should be able to find it!

I think it's a Bowler Hat.

Prince's is higher with a more curved brim, and wider ribbon, so I don't know if that makes it an entirely different hat or it's just the cut of it, but any shop with old hats will be able to identify it.

It is NOT a bowler. A bowler hat does not have a crease in the crown. (I know - I have a genuine beaver felt bowler hat in my closet.)

Does it have to be the white one? Because he's wearing a red Homburg in the Hall of Fame video.

We don’t mourn artists because we knew them. We mourn them because they helped us know ourselves.

If you Google this, you'll see many photos of Prince wearing several white hats (including the one you posted)" Afshin Shahidi Prince

Welcome to "the org", laytonian… come bathe with me.
