Northern Grade pop-up shop

4 Oct

A couple of weeks ago I was delighted to attend my first Northern Grade show in Minneapolis.  Northern Grade is a pop-up shop for men’s heritage brands – J.W. Hulme, Pierrepont Hicks, Duluth Pack, Red Wing Shoes, and many more.

When I arrived and saw where the event is held – at Architectural Antiques – I was over-the-top excited.  What a genius idea to display classic, USA-made men’s brands among beautiful, classic antique and vintage pieces!

Unfortunately, I didn’t have my camera, just my iPhone, so my photos don’t do the show justice, but here are some shots, anyway:

Love this gramophone speaker!

Because no menswear event would be complete without one.

Northern Grade is held twice yearly and is the brainchild of the Pierrepont Hicks founder.  Bravo!

 

Northern Grade will have a pop-up in Chicago on October 27, 2012:
