NM | BEST OF
When it comes to the Windy City, Chicago is best known for its mile high, deep dish pizza & their irresistible hot dogs. Cubs fan anyone?
after living in the midwest for the last couple of years, I’ve realized Chicago holds its own in style too. Now, I’m not a fashion expert myself, so when I need insight on the latest apparel; I go to my buddy Brad over at Well Spent. A few weeks back, brad & i visited independence – a men’s store carrying only american-made goods. started by george vlagos (creator of oak street bootmakers), this shop is filled with a respectable selection of menswear. Featuring brands like: Imogene + Willie, Left Field NYC, Stanley & Sons, Apolis and Engineered Garments.
next time you’re in the chicago area, drop by & stock up on a few goodies.
until next time,
