We're familiar with Dearborn Denim & Apparel, but not intimately. That said, what we've read and seen makes us feel very excited - it's a local, hip, proven apparel company. To be honest, that's not something the Sloop has much of.
For a little background, you can see more info from their website, but we pulled this from the About Us page:
Set out to build a better apparel brand. Growing from the thought: People deserve access to a great product, made the right way, and sold at a great price.
Everything is cut, sewn, and crafted at our factory in Chicago - using U.S. materials.Given their name, it seems like it was destiny that they sought out this location. As a reminder, this was the space where the Chicago Bicycle Company abruptly closed their doors in August.
This seems like a great addition to Printer's Row and looking forward to seeing them open.
