    Women are always talking about how easy men have it when it comes to fashion — all a man needs is a suit jacket, a tie, a pair of solid-color dress shoes and he's dapper enough to meet the president. But when it comes to Derby fashion, putting together an outfit isn't so simple for the guys. The well-dressed gentlemen at Derby might rock pastel seersucker or delicately embroidered pocket squares, bourbon barrel bow ties, and perhaps even a hat. Here are five Louisville places to shop for the perfect topper:


    1. The Mysterious Rack
    558 S. 4th Street

    This shop describes itself perfectly in name: The Mysterious Rack is pretty darn mysterious. Customers never know what exactly they'll find when entering its doors, but one thing you can count of finding here during the month of April is an amazing Derby hat.


    2. The Leading Man Collection
    564 S. 4th Street

    The Leading Man Collection is a shop that specializes in men's business professional clothing and always has a nice selection of hats. And now that it's Derby season, their selection has expanded to fit the needs of every Derby spectator. 


    3. Evolve
    2416 Frankfort Avenue #2

    At this men's designer consignment shop, you don't have to choose between being one of the best dressed men at the Derby and saving your money to bet on your favorite horse. Evolve takes only gently used, name brand clothing and sells it for a fraction of its original price, and business attire happens to be one if its specialties. And during Derby season, they have plenty of impressive hats to choose from. 


    4. Rodes
    4938 Brownsboro Road

    As one of Louisville's best shopping destination for the perfect outfit for any occasion, Rodes is naturally one of our top picks for Derby fashion as well. With so many clothing options and designer brands to choose from, you might just stop in for a hat and leave with your entire outfit.


    5. Preslar's Western Shop
    3299 Fern Valley Road

    If leather is more your style, this warehouse store is the place for you when it comes to shopping for your Derby hat. Preslar's specializes in leather western-style accessories and boots. And even when it's not Derby season, they always have an excellent selection of hats.
