Ikram has a new neighbor. Now open at 9 East Huron Street, Frederick Lynn Haberdasshere is a 2,200-square-foot showroom that offers one-on-one shopping appointments for men. Think of it a swanky a place to meet with a personal shopper, rather than just browse around. The space showcases hand-tailored, custom garments for men that run the gamut from business-casual to formal. There are also items for women and children.
President and founder Aaron Comes started Frederick Lynn in 2010, with the goal of "giving my clients a private, calmer alternative to the classic retail experience," he said in a press release. Comes used to visit clients in their homes or offices; with his new showroom, he and his team will offer "the same personalized attention in a centralized, beautiful space."
Decked with handmade furniture from local makers, a full-service kitchen and bar, and bright artwork, the space is intended to make clients feel at home. Comes will even serve specialty cocktails and bring in catering from local restaurants.
