No, not style’s finest moment.
Yet there’s also Meyvn, probably the most important thing to happen to men’s clothing in Logan Square since the invention of the skinny jean, opening tomorrow.
The timing is indeed serendipitous. You were just saying how you wanted to greet spring wearing the perfect black leather sneakers, the ideal French-made cable-knit varsity sweater, some hand-whisked Italian selvage denim and an impeccable leather-trimmed Scandinavian windbreaker. What luck. They’re all in stock.
Now, the fact that this is an elegantly simple shop—rough-hewn timber serving as display racks—where you can pop in after brunch at Longman & Eagle... that’s just smart.
See, they carry the type of clothes you’d wear to, say, Billy Sunday. The overall aesthetic here is relaxed, comfortable—but sharp. You’ll find brands you might know: Common Projects sneakers, for example. Others you’ll discover: Soulland (Danish makers of a sweatpants/chino hybrid); Objects Without Meaning (LA-based designer house with some rather natty shirts); boutique French watchmaker Mona.
Then there’s the stuff that falls into “other”: sandalwood candles. Art books. Design magazines. Swedish unisex hair products.
We hear ABBA’s hairstylist swears by the stuff.
