    Could a derby be re-blocked to an homburg? I've seen some derbys with very nicely-shaped/proportioned brims.

    Those D'Orsay curls are really nice, but are pretty much obsolete in current times! So you're probably talking about a vintage derby being reblocked, and my guess is that a) you'd be dealing with far too much shellac/stiffness, and b) most vintage derbies simply won't have enough crown height to support a center crease.

    Having learned from others here, it's a pretty safe bet on Ebay that if the hat has a more even pencil curl or "German curl" and a noticeably wider ribbon, then the felt is probably going to be soft and the crown is probably going to be a little taller: A Homburg, even if the photo shows an open crown.

    It will probably be difficult due to the amount of stiffener in them.

    Thanks! I hadn't thought about crown height (and loss thereof with the centre-dent).

    Don't see that everyday. Though why does it have vents AND a liner?
    "The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men.
    Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of the darkness,
    for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children."
