Cool video, but how come no one wears the hats in the video? The VP hairstyle doesnt look like he ever wears a hat

10 percent?!

10 percent?!

Doesn’t sound right that only 10 percent of their hats are being sold to the Orthodox Jewish community – should be much higher.

Thank You,
Guest

Never forget the best place in the world to buy a hat is at Primo Hatters on Kingston Ave

Shchuna

And don’t forget to support the hat store in crown heights, Primo. No need to shlep to Flatbush or Boro Park.

It’s it true that they’re discontinuing the Trionfo?
We should make a campaign to keep the Trionfo going. It’s the only hat that really looks nice and keeps its good look for a long time.

Shop in the shchuna.

Primo no longer sells Borsalino though. They became an exclusive brand and by the looks of things their quality is top notch. Maybe Borsalino should open a brand store in Crown Heights?

I don’t live in NY. I will only buy my hats from Primo in Crown Heights. They work very hard and are eager to please. In all my years shopping there I have never had a bad experience.

Many people worked very hard to make Kingston Avenue as vibrant as it is today. Take care of it. It belongs to you.

Borsalino carries the Trionfo. I just bought one with my son for his wedding a few days ago… They told me that they’re going to have it from now on.

Service is great!

What a truly impressive history. My little brother just got his bar mitzvah hat from Borsalino and he couldn’t be happier. It looks very nice on him (the man who helped us, Reuven Kaminetzky, had very nice taste in hats, listened to my brother, gave him exactly what he wanted and knew what he was talking about) and we were treated with amazing customer service. I’m looking forward to returning to Borsalino Hats next time we are in need of a hat. Kol Hakavod!

Great store and great service!
