What to Know

In the back of the store sit a series of wooden hat forms known as "head blocks" used in the elaborate sizing and shaping process. The hat is placed over the form, steamed, and left to dry. Then the brim is placed in another series of forms to be steamed, shaped, and dried. This time consuming process requires hours of attention and handwork. That's one of the reasons these are great hats-- headware that can be passed down to another generation and has a distinctive style and beauty all its own.

Pricing:

Stretch / Shrink    $15  (may require new inner band)

New inner band   $35

Reblock Crown    $15 - $50

Reblock Brim      $15 - $50

All of the services at Ôptimo Hatworks are done by hand using turn-of-the-century tools.  To see videos of the entire process, from blocking the crown to forming the brim and "pouncing" the fur-felt, click on the "Art of Hatmaking" link at the top of the page.
