For the past five years, Haberdash has established itself as a no-frills destination where fashionable Chicago gents could shop for updated, old school duds. Now, the original Old Town men’s boutique is about to get a younger (and much sexier) brother in its new River North outpost, opening October 21st.
Knowing full well that doubling their locations is worthy of a celebration, the shop teamed up with Gilt City for a special opening night event. For $25, you can party with Haberdash River North crew on opening night from 6-9pm, sip free Half Acre Brewery beer, munch on artisan pizza from La Madia, and get a special, supremely worthwhile discount.
Attendees will receive a $50 gift card towards a minimum $100 purchase, and automatically gain membership into the Circle h Loyalty Program, which typically takes a $250 purchase to join. With perks like free in-store grooming services on Tuesdays and complimentary alterations at stake, you might want to hurry—once Gilt City sells out, you'll have to buy your way in. Literally. —Chai Lee
