Located in the South Loop of Downtown Chicago, Jugrnaut Chicago men’s boutique is great for exclusive casual swag. Why, because they have those unique hats and shirts that you see the skaters and musicians wearing. I always watched artists like Wiz Khalifa, Wale, and Mac Miller and wondered where the hell they got those tees. Jugrnaut has a few of those brands like Billionaire Boys Club, Society SOP, and Benny Gold.
Owners Roger Rodriguez, Manny Rodriguez, and Brian Nevada have a great eye for what’s hot, both locally and worldwide, and pick futuristic styles they feel will blow up. Even though I’m more of a button-down and slacks man, I could see myself shopping at Jugrnaut to accent my casual swag. Another thing I dig about Jugrnaut is that they show love to local designers like Sofa Brand and Divide and Conquer.
And artist from all genres make a stop in Jugrnaut when they’re in Chicago. I was told that Schoolboy, Q-Tip, Jeremih, Dom Kennedy, Taj Gibson, Pete Rock, and my dude Raekwon frequent Jugruaut. Next time an 80’s or 90’s rap star comes in, Roger better hit us up!
