Chrome Bag Store - Chicago

Just before Christmas I headed to Chicago for the day to visit shops and my little bro. I spent quite a bit of time riding around the Wicker Park neighborhood. This area has a great vibe and is loaded with coffee shops, great eats, and some of Chicago's best shops like Rapid Transit and Copenhagen Cyclery; right in the middle of it all is the Chrome Bag store. Chrome's Chicago location has a mellow vibe and calming layout, and its really impressive to see their entire collection in one place. From shoes and apparel to messenger bags and roll tops, this store is packed with goodies.

I was lucky and hit a lull between holiday shoppers and Andrea was nice enough to show me around. One of the most impressive spots in the place is their custom bag design center. Not only can you pick through fabrics, color layouts, patches and customer samples, they actually make the bags right there in house! While not sewing daily, they have pro in house that stitches up custom orders weekly. As if that wasn't enough, Thursdays after hours they have a store party with music and other collaborations. Definitely a must see if you're in the windy city.
