    Greetings,
    The wife and I will be traveling to Chicago to attend the opera in November.
    I'm interested in getting a nice Homburg and was wondering if anyone that knows the town well could direct me to a store? I'll be there on a Saturday only.Would rather get a good fitting on a hat over doing a mail order sale.
    Thanks for the help.

    Optimo makes some beautiful pristine hats. You may like their level of customer care as well.

    @ getting a good fitting hat over doing a mail order sale, I would like to suggest as a strickly internet business and hatter of 34 years, we have met one customer in the past 4 years that flew in from China and yet have not misfit 4 in the past 4 years.

    Getting a good fit sometimes involves first getting a good relationship with your hatter. Geting a mail out conformature unless you are complete perfect regular oval is a must.
