Shop Here: Chicago
- Kempt Staff
This weekend, Lollapalooza celebrates its 10th year in residence at Chicago’s Grant Park, and in the event that you’re making the trip to the Windy City, we thought we’d help guide you the best way we know how...
By finding you the best menswear shops to visit while you’re in town.
The Shop: Apartment Number 9 The Stop: For all things #menswear, this place is plugged in—with everything from designer suits to tailored sweatpants. The Spot: 1804 N Damen Ave
The Shop: Haberdash The Stop: For the modern take on traditional menswear—and they’ve got their own line of suiting, sportswear and Italian cotton polo shirts. The Spot: 607 N State St
The Shop: Independence The Stop: For your Americana fix. They’ve got everything from Gitman Vintage shirts to turquoise belt buckles. The Spot: 47 E Oak St
The Shop: Jack Spade The Stop: While you’re on the way out of Independence upstairs, stop into Jack Spade downstairs (they’re in the same building). The Spot: 47 E Oak St
The Shop: George Greene The Stop: Also in the same building as the last two, round out your one-stop shopping with the elder statesman of Oak Street menswear, George Greene, whose selection of Charvet ties is a sight to behold. The Spot: 49 E Oak St
The Shop: Tom Ford The Stop: Well, you’re already on Oak Street. Plus, you might need to pick something up for your dear friend Jay Z. The Spot: 66 E Oak St
The Shop: Suitsupply The Stop: For a quick wardrobe upgrade en route to dinner with your new record exec friends. The Spot: 945 N Rush St
The Shop: Meyvn The Stop: For really nailing that Lollapalooza vibe—the right way, not the neon tank top way—with laid-back denim, leather jackets and classic sneakers. The Spot: 2627 N Kedzie Ave
The Shop: J.Crew Ludlow Shop The Stop: For your go-to when you’re not sure whether you’re in the mood for just a chambray shirt or a full-on new suit. The Spot: 900 N Michigan Ave
