For sixteen years, Optimo Hats has operated a quality shop in Beverly on the South Side. As of right now, Optimo has just opened their second location in the historic Monadnock Building in the Loop.
You can stop in and get fit, choose from homburg, fedora, tophat, porkpie, a myriad of colors and materials. They do steamings, re-ribboning, tailoring, blockings and cleanings and more. We advise you keep your eyes peeled this Spring for a special collaboration, (that we can't talk about) but in the meantime check out this gorgeous shop.
