Square Root

By The Editors

Back in the day, spring was a time for slack ties. Unbuttoned shirts. Letting it loose.

But these days, you’ve gotta gussy up all the time.

Here’s the place to do it: Meyvn, the city’s newest men’s boutique with a high taste for off-the-radar, primo brands, now open in Logan Square.

Brought to you by a sharp gent who’s worked everywhere from Brunello Cucinelli to Haberdash, Meyvn’s M.O. is fashion-forward yet approachable.

Inside: a clean, refined wooded space that also functions as a gallery for local artists, racks hung with eclectic casual wares from around the world.

The collections we’ve got an eye on:

Timepieces from French brand Mona (pictured above). Lugless design with a clean, understated face and a gorgeous leather strap.

And stylish and playful garb with knitwear touches from Monsieur Lacenaire. Plays nice with a pair of leather sneakers from Common Projects.

Time for a little spring cleaning.
