    Bernie Utz hat shop pics

    Here's some pics of Bernie Utz hat shop in downtown Seattle. It's a nice place to visit just to see the variety of hats.


    I had to get a pic of myself standing under this sign as I'm wearing a Borsalino







    Here's a pic of the Borsalino that cost $425. and the liner isn't even sewn in.

    Your next mission is to go inside, get that boater and take some pictures with it on. You don't have to buy it by the way.
    The red homburg will be your next one to take pictures of.

    I figured that. I love mine.
    Thanks for posting the pictures. They give one the perspective that you have quite a large hat shop there. Do they do any services for hats or are they just hat slingers?

    Whoa! I just saw that last picture. $425 for a Borsalino with a glued in liner? Boy those vintage ones keep looking better and better.

    They do minor cleaning and reshaping with a steamer they have in the shop, but that's about it. They also sell Borsalino panama's for $675. in case anyone is interested.

    AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! It gets worse as the thread goes on. If I am going to pay even half that much I know where to go and get a better hat for less.

    Nice looking store

    It's easy to find lousy, overpriced hats these days.

    I wonder what *quality* hats or at least hats that might
    be a fair deal a decent hat store offers these days.
    I'm not talking about hat maker like Art or Optimo.

    At Bernie Utz, what hats were good or worth considering?
    What did you like, FL?

    No, I'm not planning to bid on that green Strat. I am just
    wondering if a better hat store offers decent off-the-shelf
    hats these days.
    Personally, I would never want to be a member of any group where you either have to wear a hat or you canít wear a hat.

    If I paid Panamabob $675.00 for a Panama hat I would have a $10,000 hat!
    Thanks for the info and pictures. I'll stick with our hat sellers here at the lounge.
