Our sister site Racked Boston had an interesting chat with Fan Bi, founder of Blank Label. The menswear brand has a showroom in Chicago, and offers custom suits, shirts, and chinos. "We try to understand our clients' needs over thirty to sixty minutes: who they are, their wardrobe needs, what their workplace is like," Bi said. "We start with basics and expand from there, making sure we integrate a foundational wardrobe before introducing sporting shirts or jackets." [Racked Boston]
