It's not just clothes, sneakers, shoes and accessories...the store also houses a small corner dedicated to male aesthetics where a huge black barber will give you the closest shave of your life! The managers are brilliant, and will give you great, personal advice. The style of the store can be described as sophisticated vintage. Here I bought a pair of 70's Nikes and a pair of Air Max, for $50 each. AWESOME!

Hotel Palomar Chicago
This is a fairly new hotel, that I would in all honestly give 9 out of 10. It just misses out on the top spot because the reception staff were a tad cold, unlike all the rest. The hotel has the quality you'd expect from five stars. As always in the USA, you can make some choices when you book your room. I chose a double room for single use, and was rewarded with a fantastic view! The room is super spacious and the bed is extremely comfortable. It has a good TV, that I watched, and one fantastic detail is that it comes with a dock for your iPhone or iPod. It's awesome to hear loud music while watching the sunset. Breakfast is not included, but Chicago has a multitude of sites (I'll recommend some) for breakfast or brunch. The hotel lobby is a little weird, with a narrow corridor leading you to reception, but it has a super comfortable common room where you can get a free coffee every morning, and a sangria in the evening (not so good...). If you've forgotten your adapter plug, don't waste $15 buying one, instead ask at reception and they'll lend you one. Just be sure to return it before you leave, or they'll charge you $20. The employees were very friendly, happy to help with luggage and hailing taxis. I know, they live on tips so of course they are friendly, but it was still a nice experience, and they seemed very genuinely helpful. The hotel is perfectly located 3 minutes from The Magnificent Mile. I spent 4 great nights here, and I'll never forget the experience!
