What's LEADING in Chicago?

There are a few things on my bucket list - some extravagant and some very simple, but this was cool to me. Ever since Big Sean said, "In the D it's Burn Rubber, in the Chi I'm in Leaders" I was thirsty to visit Chicago and check out this boutique. I guess it is easy to say I'm highly influenced by hip hop culture and I also rely on it to inform me about the hottest fashion spots.

Leaders 1354 is managed by @SoFarTone he was a pretty dope dude and he gave me a lot of insight about the shop and past history. The shop felt so welcoming and cultured, it's a must-see if you're ever in Chicago. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

All around the walls are fanscinating artwork created by local Chicago artist who connect with the shop and of course

highly supports it. The whole design of the shop reminded me of a art gallery that just happened to sell clothes and shoes. Very creative and simplistic. Back when I heard the Big Sean bar I saw an all black Leaders hat with "Chicago Leaders" in white lettering. I just knew I was going to buy that hat when I got to the shop. Tone, the shop manager, told me once they make a hat it's never made again. I had no idea they were known for hats - new ones drop every month. That week i got word they put the designs in for the new August hats, I can't wait to see them. I enjoyed my time there, I want to thank Tone for a great experience and conversation. Hopefully we can link up so I could bless the shop with something!

Below are a couple more photos of the boutique. Check out the website and their instagram is @ldrs1354 for photos of all of the latest gear releasing.
