When I was a small boy growing up in Dallas Texas, Uncle Buddy was my Uncle/Grandfather, on my mother's side of the family. He wore $50 Dobbs hats and tailor-made suits, this was in the late '40s and early '50s. He transitioned over 50 years ago, but my memories of him are still fresh. He wore his best to church every Sunday. Those tailored suits, shiny cap toed Stacy Adams shoes and that fine Dobbs Homburg Hat. I love my Homburg, I wear it proudly in memory of my Uncle Buddy.
