A crisp, bespoke shirt is unquestionably one of life’s small joys, but when paired with single-malt scotch-accompanied fittings and convenient home delivery – it’s safe to say you’ve stumbled upon the sartorial motherlode. It’s been several years since Blank Label first began peddling their made-to-measure pieces via a popular online store, and now – following thousands of shirt sales and their first foray into the brick and mortar retail realm in Boston back in July – a sophomore showroom has opened in a quietly elegant fashion in Chicago’s River North.
In addition to their flagship product, Blank Label Chicago offers an expanded range of suiting and chinos, plus a variety of globally-sourced, 100% cotton fabrics spanning casual to formal, in smart block colours, chic stripes and playful grid designs. Upon arriving for your scheduled appointment at the handsome West Ohio Street space, you’ll be greeted by a haberdasher who, while you sip scotch, will get all kinds of acquainted with your style and preferences from collar to cuff. All that’s left to do is have your measurements taken, and then eagerly await the parcel containing your expertly-crafted custom garb set to arrive one week later. And if that weren’t enough to have you booked in already, then consider this – the BL boss donates all unused stock to the Dress For Success charity. Sharp!
