Re: where can i buy a hat?

Yes there are really nice hats in Manor.
Size 58 to 61.
I love men's hats, the 1950s style, it adds such a nice elegant touch.
They had quite a selection yesterday in Geneva so I can only guess that Zurich will be the same.

Re: where can i buy a hat?

Manor, Globus, Jelmoli, Coop City, there's a hat shop in the Hauptbahnhof, a men's store on Bahnhofstrasse, numerous hats being sold at the Christmas markets. I personally have bought a few Trilbys, flat caps, and Fedoras while in Switzerland...

Just look and you will find...

Re: where can i buy a hat?

Manor has the same selection all over Switzerland.
Probably the one on the Bahnhofstrasse is a large one, so you'll be lucky.
You will find them close to the suits etc (not in the sports section).

Re: where can i buy a hat?

There Chemiserie Hauenstein selling shirts and hats at Langstrasse 103.
There is another one near Bahnhofstrasse 56 / Och Sport. But that one is more expensive.

Re: where can i buy a hat?

There is a very good, if rather small, hat shop just down the road from Hardbrücke station - go past the salvation army, heading towards the Viadukt . . in fact it is almost next door to the Freitag tower.
I`m quite sure you will find what you want there.
I often stop and look in the window - not becasue I want a hat - rahter becauuse they are all very distinctive.
However If I did want a hat - I may well buy it from there . . shall I shut up now?

Re: where can i buy a hat?

If you are willing to take a train to Baden (+/- 15min from Zurich HB with the direct train) there is a bar in the old town (Cava Bar) which sells hats:

Watch out for their opening times, though...

Re: where can i buy a hat?

This is the place on Bahnhofstrasse people are mentioning. You're sure to find a Panama in there.

Re: where can i buy a hat?

May I point out that we are in the middle of winter and it's only going to get colder.
For a good selection of panama hats - typically summer wear for the distinguished gentleman and Uncle Bertrand - you'd probably have a better choice once the weather gets a bit warmer, aka spring
