We’re hiring for Chicago!

We’re looking for a store manager and sales associates for our upcoming Chicago location. We like to think of ourselves as advisors or guides, rather than salespeople, and are looking for others who feel the same about the shopping experience. We want to build relationships with our customers that go beyond simply selling merchandise.

We opened our Manhattan store in May 2008 with a tightly edited selection and low key web presence. We didn’t know what was to come, but our goal was simple: to offer classic styles that can be worn for a lifetime. With the motto Nuquam Jactate, which means “Never Boast,” we set out to make finding the perfect item as simple as possible.

Since then we’ve expanded our offerings and opened a robust online shop. We’ve kept the same spirit throughout everything we’ve done for the past eight years, and we want to extend that feeling to our Chicago customers.

Chicago, here we come.

Hard to believe it was eight years ago today we opened our doors for the first time. It is a humbling experience to own a small business, and our success is due to those of you who have encouraged and supported us over the years.

And to our trading partners who believed in us back in 2007, when we came to you with an idea of opening a multi-brand shoe store in the West Village. Not your most likely spot. Without your support we would not be here today.

We truly appreciate each and every customer who has purchased a can of shoe polish, pair of socks, or pair of shoes. It’s no small wonder that we’ve built a group of like-minded friends who share our passion and appreciation for high quality footwear and accessories.

As we enter our ninth year we reflect on our commitment to providing you with the best offerings and service possible.

Today we are very excited to announce that we will be entering a new phase in our growth. This fall we will open our first shop outside New York. We are proud to be coming to Chicago.

Our location will be in the historic Monadnock building on South Dearborn Street in the South Loop. We look forward to meeting friends old and new in this beautiful building in the heart of the city.

We’ll keep you posted with updates in the coming weeks and months. Until then, thank you all once again for your loyalty and patronage.

Chicago, here we come.
