Donned by movie stars,doctors, politicians & regular Chicagoans alike, Optimo Hats is a Chicago mainstay, and any enthusiasts answer to a quality made hat.

Optimo Hats have been seen in major movies (all of the hats in 2009’s Public Enemies were made by the company) and on many celebrities who frequent the Chicago area (Bernie Mac was a store regular).

Optimo Hats feature a range of classic styles to choose from, including:
  • The Cagney
  • The Tophat
  • The Porkpie
  • The Fedora

    Hats are made with a focus on quality, and customers can be fitted for their favorite style in store or over the phone. Each hat is finished with the finest modern ribbons from all over the world, and sewers use unique folding techniques to ensure bows are secured with no thread visible.

    About Optimo Hats designer Graham Thompson:

    After his favorite hat maker announced his plans to retire, Graham Thompson bought the business and turned it into Optimo Hats – moving the location from the South Side to larger space in nearby Beverly.

    After more than 15 years of business, Thompson’s hat business has grown into two storefronts (the Beverly store and a new downtown location in the Monadnock building), each with its own distinct feel.
