A haberdashery was originally a shop where customers could purchase small articles for sewing, in essence, a notions shop. Today, at least here in the United States, a haberdashery has become synonymous with a men’s clothing shop of an upscale nature.
Visitors to Chicago can get a taste of that old-style haberdashery at the recently opened Shrine. What can you expect? Classic luxury items that have stood the test of time: silk jacquard ties, hats, gloves, cufflinks, and other men’s accessories. These are items that, with proper care, can be passed down to the next generation – they’re that classic and that well made.
If you’re uncertain about your tastes and best styles, or need help selecting a gift, helpful and fashionable staff can help you out. And if you’re just along for the ride, you can find some comfy spot to wait and watch the shopping whirlwind.
Put Shrine on your shopping to-do list for the next time you’re in Chicago.
