You know those secret men's clubs just outside every mall where you can drink free, unlimited beer while your girlfriend tries on every single pair of shoes and jeans?
Yeah, we wish. Someday...
Meantime, we've got the just-opened Madison Mens Shop, where you can go shopping with your girlfriend and actually have a decent time yourself.
See, Madison Mens is its own entity, yet it’s under the same roof as the popular Madison women’s shop. While your lady grapples with buying those studded Chloe boots, you can throw something together for Hooray Henry's later that night — say, a Maison Kitsune button-up shirt and zip-up sweater, plus Wolverine boots.
With polished concrete floors and cranberry crates for shoe displays, the space matches the stylishness of its merchandise. And that's saying something considering apparel and footwear by Rag & Bone and Levis, high-end designers Valentino and Missoni, and emerging designers Jacui Aiche and Golden Goose.
It’s all so lovely you might even split a Cobb salad and a glass of rosé with her at the Ivy afterwards.
Now if only you could coexist under that other roof this peacefully.
