When it comes to fashion, men walk a fine line — go too fashion-forward, you’re a peacock; go with ho-hum threads, and you risk the Steve Carellian shame of Crazy, Stupid, Gap.

Walk the middle road, and fashionably, with expertly curated gear from Haberdash’s just-launched online store.

Chicago-based Haberdash blends coastal high fashions with Midwestern style, stocking choice American-made threads that’ll have you gussied for every occasion:

Office casual
Slip L.B.M.’s wool plaid blazers over a window-check button-down from New England Shirt Co, then throw on some distressed Rogue Territory denim for casual charm.

Weekend wear
Haberdash won’t stear you wrong with a wool blazer from Woolrich, a Gitman Bros. Vintage button-down, and ruggedly modish Red Wing chukkas.

The perfect soft suit
With their calculated lines and soft shoulders, LBM 1911 suits embody the Italian concept of sprezzatura.

For styling help, opt to “Shop with an Expert,” where you can ask the ‘Dash staff for tailored advice, or even a dinner suggestion if you’re in Bears country.

Just another example of that Midwestern charm.
