Optimo trunk show – October 14 and 15

We’re excited to announce that we’ll be hosting a trunk show with Optimo hat company on October 14 and 15. Graham Thompson, owner, will be here for two days to take custom orders. We’ll also have stock on hand to purchase. Whether you’re new to hats or you’ve worn them for sixty years, you’ll be certain to find something special.

Optimo hats are without question some of the finest available. Using traditional hat-making techniques and felts made of all wild furs, their hats match the quality of the great hatters of fifty years ago. They work with their mills to create exclusive felts in new colors each year, as well as special blends like true silverbelly and melusine.

One particularly special aspect of Optimo’s hats is the sizing. In addition to traditional sizes, they offer three sizes between each size, as well as four different oval shapes for heads of different proportions. The combination of these two variables means that Optimo hats have an exceptional fit.

A wide variety of styles and swatches are available. Feel free to peruse the Optimo website for an idea of what they’ve made in the past. Anything is possible, so if you don’t see the perfect hat, it can always be made specially for you.

This trunk show is by appointment only. To make an appointment, or for more information, send us an email at events@leffot.com, or give us a call at (212) 989-4577.

Borsalino hats

In the same way shoes compliment a wardrobe from the feet up, a fine hat compliments it from the head down. At the end of the day, it’s the attention to details that separate the men from the boys. That’s not to say it takes a great effort. Donning a hat can be all it takes.

Borsalino hats are classic and stylish, the perfect way to add classic style to a more modern look. These hats are lightweight, extremely comfortable, and best of all, able to stand up to the elements.

We stock Borsalino hats and caps in a variety of styles and colors. They’re all available online and in store.
