Fedora

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

I have quite a collection of fedoras.  I recently received a black derby that I had ordered.

 

What is everyone else's thoughts on this?

 

Thanx!!!

Oldsarge's advice is wise. Let me add that the sort of face that is suited to a fedora may not be well-suited to a derby (a.k.a. a bowler). For myself, I look good in fedoras, and dreadful in a derby, so I hope that you can send the derby back, if it does not suit you.

I am inclined to believe that wearing a derby/bowler falls into the realm of costume almost everywhere.

In many circumstances fedoras are on the brink of costume, homburgs even more so. Derbies and toppers will cross the line almost everywhere.

I'm already a member there.  I go by Bruce Wayne.  Alas, that name was taken here.

Derby's under the law are covered under the attractive nuisance doctrine. This tort (short version) holds that the landlord is responsible for damages to children by a landlord's leaving unattended machines and such that children would be attracted to and want to play with. Under the law, all children are guiltless in the throwing of snowballs or in summer months small racks at those wearing Derby s or Top Hats. The cases first precedent was that of a T. Tim vs Ebenezer Scrooge, in 1843. Enjoy your derby, but also wear a medical alert bracelet. smile.gif
