Haberdash Is a Store To Fly For
Here’s a question for you, gents: is it wrong for a man to cash-in frequent-flyer miles just so he can book a shopping trip? After discovering Haberdash in Chicago, I think that’s exactly what I will be doing a few times a year.
Living in New York, I’ve gotten used to having to hop-scotch between stores in order to find exactly what I am looking for — knowing that one place has great ties; another place is my go-to for jackets; a third is where I look for suits; maybe that place up town will have the shoes I want….In other words, I’ve never found a store that pulls it all together in one space.
Like I said, until I found Haberdash. All credit goes to my wife (yet again, she leads me to something that improves my life…), who knows owner Jerry Kamhi and Adam Beltzman from her days in Chicago. She’d been telling me about his place for months and, to be honest, I was thinking there was no way it could be as awesomely-great as she described it.
Reader, I am here to say I was wrong. (See, honey? I said I was wrong.)
Of late, it’s become a bit of a cliché to say a good store is “curated” but there’s no other way to describe the selection here. I could get all A$AP Rocky on you, and name-check of a slew of labels here ranging from Italian to American to British, but you’re better off taking my word for it — and then checking them out on their site haberdashmen.com.
Or, better yet, stopping in. Whether or not you use frequent-flyer miles to get there, well, that’s up to you, my friend.
