Appreciate the granular images of you in the western derby. Me being green, are there categorical differences between a derby a hamburg?
Thanks! The images are just an attempt to be artsy by running a couple pics thru app editing filters.

Derby’s are stiff/hard felt hats, homburgs are soft felt. The blocking between the two is different. Homburgs can be worn with a center crease or not; with crown pinches/dents or not. Being stiff, Derby’s are not made to be creased or pinched. Derby’s have the D’Orsay curl & the binding is different from that of a Homburg. Other than that, I’ll leave to the Expert.

Great, thanks for some basics. The D'Orsay curl is what grabbed my interest...I'll google.
Keep working the black and white!
