on my 30th birthday we shot a piece for the wonderful hat shop optimo. much thanks goes out to mr. graham thompson, his family, and the talented employees of this truly unique establishment. right here, on chicago's south side, these craftsmen carry on the tradition of making the finest quality goods, by methods unchanged for hundreds of years. graham and his team don't do this to prove a point, they employee these techniques because it's how you make the finest quality hat.

check out what the folks at monocle and gq have to say about it.

final video piece to be posted here soon.
