Independence’s Big Day

We couldn’t be happier for our friend and Doser George Vlagos of Oak Street Bootmakers who’s celebrating the grand opening of his brand-spanking-new brick and mortar, Independence, in the Gold Coast. In addition to doubling as his handmade shoe brand’s flagship, the store features a bevy of covetable American-made menswear brands: Engineered Garments, Imogene + Willie, Post Overalls. The list goes on. Tomorrow night, we’ll be there toasting this great new addition to the Chicago shopping scene. We need it! See you there?
