People move to the Ukranian Village for myriad reasons, chiefly because if you move to Moldova village, your food keeps going bad. Keeping their food and clothes fresh: Sir & Madame.
From the husband/wife team behind Lincoln Park's recently shuttered Solemates, Sir & Madame's a new venture in the more indie-boutique minded Ukrainian Village, with fresh gear juxtaposed against a vintage-y vibe created by old-timey knickknacks (antique sewing machines, worn leather suitcases...) and a corner fitting room separated by some theatrical red velvet curtains, ensuring other patrons don't have to look at your Odd Couple. Gear wise they're offering up streetwearish tees and summery buttondowns from The Brooklyn Circus, hand-stitched leather kicks from San Fran's Thorocraft, 3Sixteen's understated prep goods, and whimsically colored Happy Socks, a name choice suggesting they literally want customers to get off on the right foot. They're also beefing up their eponymous in-house line -- which had previously been focused on vintage-styled graphic tees -- with a line of canvas weekend bags in collab with a local designer w/ natural leather straps/handles/bottoms, so it'll match its contents if you're packing for a weekend at Dominatrix Camp.
To enhance your face they also have an ever-replenishing stock of vintage eyewear from brands like Gucci, Carrera, and Dunhill, perfect for hiding your peepers if you don't want people to know you moved to Estonia Villiage.
