Best Panama Hats and Milliner Renovator
TrueWest magazine - The Best of the West
Grant Sergot of Óptimo Hatworks in Bisbee, Arizona, has one of the best little ol' hat shops in the West. Grant also outfitted our O.K. Corral photo-shoot (see pages 80-83), but that didn't influence our decision to include Óptimo Hatworks in "Best of the West." Óptimo makes a superior Panama hat and does excellent hat renovations. Grant's high-end hats sell for $20,000 and take 12 months to weave. In addition, cowboys, businessmen and customers from Cairo (no joke) come to Óptimo Hatworks to re-fashion their favorite hats. "Word of mouth," Grant tells us, "has been incredible." You can't beat that.
