In the market for mens' apparel or accessories? With two pop-ups on the horizon, this weekend is going to be the time to shop.
This Friday, Chicago-based online retailer The Tie Bar will open its first pop-up store at 918 West Armitage. The pop-up will be open for two months and feature The Tie Bar's latest styles and collaborations with Modern Family's Jesse Tyler Ferguson and NBA star Dwyane Wade. Guests can expect to see affordable and on-trend neckties, bow ties, tie bars, pocket squares, and socks. Store hours will be 11am to 7pm Tuesday through Friday, 10am to 7pm Saturday, and noon to 6pm Sunday.
As part of Chicago Fashion Week, Northern Grade will be at Millennium Park this weekend. The roving pop-up market made an appearance in LA earlier this month. Visitors can expect to see local brands like Stock Mfg, Glass House Shirtmakers, and Drift Eyewear, heritage brands like Dehen 1920 and Dickies 1922, and young labels like Noble Denim and Krammer & Stoudt. Visit the Northern Grade tent at Chase Promenade South (down towards Monroe Street) between 11am and 7pm Saturday or 11am and 5pm Sunday.
