Chicago commuters, 1949. Photograph lifted from the Optimo Hats Facebook page.
Thoroughly enjoying my 'Dearborn' classic fedora from Optimo Hats of Chicago (in Bison a lovely, rich dark brown) two or three days each week. It never fails to elicit favorable remarks from passersby. As the tagline suggests, life is better in a good hat.
