Chicago's premiere men's hatmaker, Optimo Hats, has opened a new downtown Chicago location in the historic Monadnock building.

The new storefront, which occupies a mid-block location on the west side of Dearborn Street, between Jackson Blvd. and Van Buren St., opened in January, 2012.

    Optimo Hats have been seen in major blockbuster 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
  • The Oxford

    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) and a range of celebrity clients. Each store has its own distinct feel, and the Monadnock location serves as a central location for out of town visitors.
