    For one, I shall shuffle off to Buffalo

    I own no homburgs, although I hope to own two bespoke ones some years hence, but I did for a time possess a 1950s Mallory Homburg that belonged to my late Uncle Bruce, which I later gave to a friend whom the hat fit and who looks quite good wearing it.

    I yet have a few pictures of it:

    Here's a modernish Stetson. I don't know the exact age.

    My Dunn homburg. Unsure of the age, but it's a nice hat.

    While not technically a Homburg, this Mossant originally had a pencil curl brim and is a "Lord's Hat" which is in the Homburg family.

    I suspect Not-Bogart13 will be posting in here sometime soon. He just picked up a really nice one here in Philadelphia.

    Do you have a midnight blue tuxedo? I'm about to have my tux made, and am tempted by this "equally correct" color.
