  • Knows what they are doing. Good assortment of Borsalinos. I also snagged the best men's scarf I have ever owned. Can have your hat blocked and cleaned. Anymore, that is a service that is hard to find in many cities.
  • Friday the 23 March was the 3rd time in my 50 years of living in Cincinnati and i was never talked to like I was the other day. No I didn’t come in with an attitude nor, did I develop one after the older woman that assisted me responded to me when I simply asked, “if you didn’t have the bigger size on hand how long would it take you to get it” and her response was, I don’t know, and she said it like I was bothering her by making her get up to deal with me. Some of you can defend these shop owners but I was for warned years ago of the type of owners that these people are but, it was a nice day, i’m Up in age and went in there wearing a uniform that would appear that I work and have money to spend but, they are tired owners of a business that is in short demand anymore and have to be struggleing to stay afloat in an area that is only alive during the professional time of day and, they show it. I hate to bash and give up on a local shop with this kind of longevity in my area that i live inn but, I will never go in this shop again and spend one penny ever!I really hate to do this to sweet older people but this is the other side of doing bad business and treating every other person differently than you did the last. I’m done and this only solidifies the reason more not to go downtown Cincinnati to shop.
  • Love the hats and selection. Be warned- a bit pricey. The business process not do much. I received a hat several years ago as a gift while visiting Cincinnati, and was told they will clean it and block it for free. As I don't live here this becomes a challenge. The last two trips in I was not able to get it done because apparently only 1 person is allowed or qualified to do this. (I can always mail it to them though....) I was prepared to purchase another hat but will stick with a more local vendor.
  • Helpful staff and large selection.
  • Local quality with Greek flare (old school and to the point). It's a hat shop, if you're loitering around and nitpicking, then you probably gave a bad review. If you're going in their with a purpose then you're welcomed. This store has been around since long before the downtown revitalization, so they may be leery of people just hanging out in there. Just be courteous and engaging, they'll take care of you.
