    While I like the look of a homburg, they made only a brief appearance for a season or so. Definitely derby for the lady rider.

    Sigh…….too bad……on me, a derby looks like a big old Tupperware bowl…..

    LOL! Make sure it is shaped right – the brim should be curled up reasonably tight against the hat itself.

    Too funny Deb….. I like the Homburg’s too. No wonder I found one cheap… passe’…. story of my life.

    I liked the homburg on men in formal ware but that has also changed

    as flat saddlecompetition becomes less of the market, I would guess that derbies and such are going to get more and more expensive – we have picked up some great used derbies on trot.org
