This week, online menswear brand Bonobos, feted a final permanent guideshop on Armitage in Lincoln Park. Known for its bright seasonal colors of pants and shorts, on-point customer service, the brand has until now been couch surfing moving from River North, to a new construction at 840 W Armitage and now has finally settled into a storefront with more traditional character right across the street at 845 W Armitage.
Inside the Guideshop this Wednesday, suits, denim and button-downs were laid out on the tables and splayed on racks for the opening event hosted by none other than founder Andy Dunn. Over 150 fans of the brand hailing from across the US crowded the shop with long-time fan of the brand, former NFL Bears' Linebacker Hunter Hillenmeyer.
Now that the shop is open to the public, customers get the best of both worlds in online and in-store retail with the Bonobos Guideshop offering the ultimate shopping experience.
