Optimo Bowler hat in great condition (60 cm; 7 1/2 in)

I bought these hats directly in the store when it was still in Southern Chigaco in 2011. And shortly afterwards I moved overseas. So these great hats have been in odor free storage since.

Great opportunity to get wonderful hats at a very attractive price point.

2) The Derby. Aka The Bowler. 250 USD.
This is in classic grey, looks like currently this is offered only in black.

This one I did use a bit more, but condition is excellent.


Location is Zurich, Switzerland, and I can post worldwide if you have no business to be here. Swiss Post is not the cheapest but it works. I don't think I can make the parcel under 2 kg, so select the price accordingly: https://www.post.ch/en/private/sending-mail-privat/international-parcels-private/private-postpac-international-economy. If any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me.


SOLD 1) Rush Street. 250 USD.
http://optimo.com/collection/the-rush-street is the current version of this, looks very similar.
I don't remember this material anymore, but looking at current selection I would say it is flecked indigo. This one does not have size tag, it was made to order so I guess those are not tagged. Size is same as the other hat that has a tag.

Let the pictures tell how great is the condition:

(my apologies for having this one upside down, it doesn't want to flip)

There was a question on the exact colour. It is very difficult to capture on a photo as it changes a lot depending how much there is light. In bright day light colour is very vidid indigo, in normal daylight or well lighted room it is less bright but clearly blue, and then in low light it is quite dark. Here is one additional picture taken in evening light, with some additional items to show reference colours.
