Fodor's Review

One of the last establishments of its kind, Optimo makes high-end custom straw and felt hats for men in an atmosphere that evokes 1930s and '40s haberdashery. It also offers a complete line of related services, including cleaning, blocking, and repairs. Hat connoisseurs can visit Optimo's original store on the Far Southwest Side (10215 S. Western Avenue).
