Thanks to a newly-formed pop-up alliance between NYC-based men's grooming empire John Allan's penthouse flagship and Chicago's affordably-stylish men's custom clothier Nicholas Joseph, guys now have a secret-private style source all their own, discreetly tucked 24-stories above street level.
The Nicholas Joseph pop-up officially launched with a private opening party October 6th, complete with signature cocktails, spa services, and a first peek at Nicholas Joseph's new fall and winter collection.
At the pop-up, guys can score ready-to-go items like Italian silk ties, pocket squares, mother-of-pearl collar stays, cuff links, and cashmere essentials. They can also check-out displays of custom suits, sport coats, overcoats, trousers and dress shirts, made in your choice of fabric and style options.
The shop is open normal salon hours but in case you want to make an appointment you can call (312) 895-1577. While you're there, take in the sweeping views of the financial district on wrap-around terrace, sipping your choice from the bar, maybe playing billiards. After that, relax with one of the ladies and take advantage of services like haircut, coloring, manicure, massages, facials or a sports pedicure.
