Innovative menswear start-ups, such as bespoke brand Blank Label, are gaining momentum in Boston. By end of the month, the Back Bay-based custom clothier will open its second showroom in the city, a 1200 square foot space at 36 Bromfield Street in Downtown Crossing. The new, larger location will reflect the heritage of its neighborhood, veering toward an aesthetic that says "mercantile" and "banker" in contrast to the dark, resin wood of the existing Back Bay showroom.
The Downtown Crossing space will host clients for one-on-one consultations with Blank Label's menswear specialists, offering customization and fittings for competitively priced apparel. Shirts range from $80 to $125, with suiting upwards of $575, and chinos at $95. Appointments are available Monday through Friday, and founder Fan Bi excitedly reports that the new showroom is already booked through July 2. Schedule your visit here.
