Optimo Hat Shop in Chicago

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I was thinking about getting a new hat Graham Thompson (owner of the Optimo Hat Shop). I was thinking about a navy hat (see link below). The last time I got hats from them was 01 and 02. My 1st hat was $350 and a year later I got another one for $375.
Today the felt hats start @ $650 (damn). With sales tax or just shipping that's nearly $700

Found this one brand new with tags last year in a discount shop for $49. Made for Wilkes Bashford.

Optimo's overhead has to be huge. The Optimo brand has enough notoriety to command a premium.
Vintage Silhouettes hats by Art Fawcett are fantastic hats and are $200 less, maybe even more, than Optimo for 100% beaver hats. He is in Oregon.

That's a low rent area on Western Ave @ 102nd (compared to downtown)
