that's my catch, the seller give it me for 5 Euro, buy now
Thank you Al, your german is perfekt.
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.
"I have recently acquired a new hat of such ferocity that it has been running my whole life for me. I wake up in the morning thinking, 'Who shall I wear my hat at today?'"
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).

Thank you Steve. I was suprised as the seller wrote me he wants 5 EUR for it. He is on the way Steve, i think tomorrow he arrived with a little luck.
Wait? Maybee its no Borsalino.
Don't see that everyday. Though why does it have vents AND a liner?
