Just wondering if anyone knew of a decent hat shop in the Chicago area. I have seen the website for Optimo and was wondering if there were others? My search by yellow pages listings has been a bust. Thanks.

Hats Plus is a good store . He has a good selection of Stetson ,Borsalino and many other hats.
There is also Maxi's which I believe is a clothing store that carries a big selection of Borsalino Hats .They've been around for years . Great people to deal with!!

Several of us have flown to Chicago to visit with Graham at Optimo Hat Company. If I lived close by I would visit or buy a Fedora monthly. :) I have a friend that gets a new Optimo hat every quarter.

Graham's store is in a league of it's own . I've never been there ,but I 've had the pleasure of meeting him in my store . A really nice guy and a true craftsman . It's a shame more people don't appriciate finer things in life

I knew there had to be a few more hat shops in Chi-town. Thanks for the help.
